abstract
This project is a system based on a coal strip mine that monitors power usage in order to reduce peak demand of the facility and thereby save money and reduce overall stress on the power grid. The system has two components: the first is the system as it relates to the coal mine in question and all the information that is necessary to implement this system at the coal mine. The second component is a scaled down model that imitates the loads present at the coal mine and follows a schedule to control the loads in order to demonstrate the basic workings of the system. The system works by monitoring real power and switching off resistive heat loads if the value goes too high. The heat is then switched back on during periods of lower activity in order to keep the facilities at a reasonable temperature. This system has the potential for substantial economic savings for the coal mining facility.
