Optimising the operational energy efficiency of an open-pit coal mine system
Patterson, Samuel R (2016) Optimising the operational energy efficiency of an open-pit coal mine system. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.
This thesis investigates factors that impact the energy efficiency of a mining operation. An innovative mathematical framework and solution approach are developed to model, solve and analyse an open-pit coal mine. A case study in South East Queensland is investigated to validate the approach and explore the opportunities for using it to aid long, medium and short term decision makers.
