## Optimal control of grinding mill circuit using model

The usual control objectives for a grinding mill circuit are to improve the quality of the product, to maximise the throughput, to decrease the power consumption, to reduce the usage of grinding media and to improve process stability Yet, these objectives are interrelated and necessitates tradeoffs to be made, ie both throughput and product particle size cannot be independently controlled to
