Joe here. If you’d like to contact me about engineering or anything else in this blog then leave me a message. If you want to chat by email then leave your email address in the correct field when submitting a comment. It wont be publicly visible and I can contact you.
My experience is in design of mineral processing facilities. Apart from the usual electrical, instrumentation and process control design and commissioning, my specialties are:
• Plant optimisation: reduce variability, push equipment closer to capacity limits, improve rate, reduce downtime, improve recovery.
• Constraint control: dynamically identify a plant’s constraint and run it at its capacity limit.
• Predictive control / model based control: accurately control processes where traditional PID controllers perform poorly.
• Improve SCADA operability: reduce response time to abnormal situations, poor plant performance or downtime.
