This brief investigates the feasibility of applying a robust nonlinear model predictive controller to a run-of-mine ore milling circuit, and the conditions under which such a controller might be worthwhile implementing. The run-of-mine ore milling circuit model used consists of nonlinear modules for the individual components of the milling circuit, allowing(More)
In this article a nonlinear model predictive controller is presented for a run-of-mine ore milling circuit. The aim is to determine the feasibility of applying nonlinear MPC to such a circuit. The objective of the controller is to reduce the variability in the product particle size which leads to increased recovery of gold from downstream processes. The(More)
