SAG Mill Optimization using Model Predictive Control

For SAG mill control, expert systems are often used as they are able to detect the rapid increase in mill weight and anticipate an imminent overload using combinations of rules. However they often reduce the feed rate more than necessary in some situations, and require time to return the feed rate to maximum levels, which decreases production capacity. Developing the expert system rules to manage the dynamic response of a process is not a simple task. The rules must manage error from the target as well as the rate of change of the process. If measured disturbance variables such as pebble recycle, ore feed size distribution or mill rotation speed are also included in the control design, then the expert rules become even more complex. Adjusting these rules to obtain optimal control response under all situations is difficult because there is no theoretical basis for determining these settings. This leads to a trial and error approach with uncertain dynamic control performance results. At some point, managing the control of a process
