(North-West University (South Africa) , Potchefstroom Campus, 2017)
Eskom supplies electricity to South Africa, which experienced a capacity margin shortfall. Energy savings companies (ESCOs) implement demand side management (DSM) initiatives to reduce the power strain on the electricity ...
Expanding compressed air management through cross cut isolation
(North-West University (South Africa)., 2022)
Compressed air on deep-level mines is regarded as an important source of energy for underground mining operations, as the compressed air network forms the backbone of several mining processes over a 24-hour mining cycle. ...
