Wireless Ventilation Control for Large-Scale Systems: The Mining Industrial Case

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper describes a new industrial case on automation, for large scale systems with high environmental impact: The mining ventilation control systems. Ventilation control is essential for the operation of a mine in terms of safety (CO and NOx regulation) and energy optimization. The authors first discuss novel regulation architecture, highlighting the interest for a model-based control approach and the use of distributed sensing capabilities thanks to a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). They propose a new model for underground ventilation.
