Demand side management of a run-of-mine ore milling circuit

Power load shifting was implemented on a run-of-mine ore milling circuit model. A real time optimizer and model predictive controller were used. Operating costs can be reduced for mills running below maximum capacity. At 93% of maximum throughput cost reductions of $9.90 kg can be achieved. Power load shifting is not economically feasible when there is a demand to continuously run the milling

The History of Run-of-the-millPhrase OriginsMerriam

Origins of "Run of The Mill" The term run-of-the-mill has been in use since the early 20th century with the meaning "not outstanding in quality or rarity," "average, ordinary." It's an adjective that modifies nouns: we have run-of-the-mill problems, a discerning customer doesn't want a run-of-the-mill sofa, etc.
