Grinding mill circuits — A survey of control and

2009-2-16  Grinding mill circuits are the most energy and cost intensive unit processes in the mineral processing industry and therefore the study of the control systems for grinding circuits remains important (Ramasamy et al., 2005, Wills and Napier-Munn, 2006). Grinding circuit control objectives range from maintaining system stability to achieving maximum economic benefit.
