Texte principal de l'évenement.
Recent progress in instrumentation and control hardware as well as the rapid development of optimizing controls now make it possible to consider a wide range of solutions for controlling a mineral processing plant. Controlling a plant more efficiently leads to higher throughput, higher recoveries and/or grade as well as savings in reagent and better power utilization. The objective of the course is to provide a comprehensive overview of the subject ranging from topics relevant to conventional or basic controls, to some of the more recent and exciting developments in optimizing control systems.
Participant should expect to gain a broad understanding of modern industrial controls, and to be better prepared to participate in decisions or programs relating to the design and development of effective process control systems. Each participant will receive an electronic (pdf) copy of the presentations. The Excel spreadsheets tools used in the course will also be provided.
