Flow Optimization for Iron Ore Reclaiming Process

Bruno Eduardo Lopes, José Pinheiro de Moura, Denis Anderson Ribeiro, Fernando Henrique Costa e Borges, Marco Antônio de Souza

Abstract

The purpose of the this paper is to demonstrate the optimization of the flow for the iron ore reclaiming process by reclaimers over rails using implementation of PID control algorithms, identification techniques, Predictive Control and a new effort-based learning method herein called reinforcement by difference learning method and proportional reinforcement learning method. The outcome was an increase of productivity, with reduction of the flow variability and on the amount of overflow occurrences.
