Book Description

This book covers innovative technologies and approaches for improvement of technical and economic parameters of functional geotechnical systems. The focus is on mathematical modelling of objects and processes, as well as the development of techniques and their control algorithms. The book comprises schemata of practical tasks solving related to mine ventilation and electrical circuit operation, cutter-loaders and mining electrical vehicles. It also demonstrates possible applications of hybrid technologies and IT-methods to the work of geotechnical systems. Implementation of methods and technologies presented in the book will allow to reduce energy resources consumption of geotechnical systems, and to enhance environmental and economic parameters of their operation, being one of the essential conditions for sustainable development in modern society.

The book is particular of interest to technical specialists, researchers, students and university teachers, whose work is connected to the improvement of efficiency of geotechnical systems.

Pivnyak Gennadiy Grigoryevich (1940) graduated from Dnepropetrovsk Mining Institute in 1963 (nowadays "National Mining University") with a specialization in Engineering Electromechanics. He has been affiliated with the NMU since 1963: Rector (1982), and Head of the Electric Power Supply Systems Department (1976). In 1967 he was awarded Candidate of the Technical Sciences degree, and Doctor of Technical Sciences in 1981. He is a prominent scientist in the field of power engineering. Being the founder of scientific school of mining and metallurgical power engineering, he developed general theory, design concept and synthetic procedures of powerful systems of electromagnetic transmission of overfrequency energy. His fundamental research helped to implement the latest electrotechnics for mining and metallurgical industry and machine-building industry, supply equipment for electric drive, transport and equipment with specific load.
