    Efficient and rational use of energy is one of the main challenges at present to develop a sustainable society. Long-term economic growth is only possible with the application of technological improvements in the use of energy. This book is discussing geotechnical systems with large potential for enhancing energy efficiency. Modern manufacturing processes are complex and make ever increasing demands on the use of energy. This work involves multidisciplinary collaboration and research on aspects of energy use in geotechnical systems. The work provides many practical examples and illustrative material and it effectively connects theoretical and practical aspects of efficiency improvement of geotechnical systems. Benefiting from authors’ extensive experience in industry and academia it brings together comprehensive technical information on reducing energy consumption. It provides valuable information covering operation of mine equipment and installations and features some topics never previously published in geotechnical courses.

    The book is appropriate for students, researches, professionals and teachers interested in geotechnical systems and improving its efficiency.

    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.
