Abstract [en]

Ventilation of underground mines is a critical, complex and expensive activity. Removing pollutants from e.g. diesel equipment is important to insure a safe and operable work environment in the mine. The energy consumption of ventilation for an underground mine typically comprises around 30-50% of the total energy consumption of underground mine operation. It is therefore vital that the performance of the ventilation system can be monitored and maintained as high as possible. The goal of this project is to develop methods  and algorithms which are useful in this context. The developed methods and algorithms are tested in two real mine case studies.
