Presented at the SAIIE25 Proceedings, 9th ? 11th of July 2013, Stellenbosch, South Africa ? 2013 SAIIE.,The parameters of mill load (ML) not only represent the load of the ball mill, but also determine the grinding production ratio (GPR) of the grinding process. Monitoring and recognition of milling conditions have significant effect on the operating efficiency, product quality, and energy and grinding media consumption for the milling circuit. This paper presents an automated grinding media charging system incorporating a multi-agent system developed in Java Agent Development Environment (JADE). A control logix program is designed to determine the precise quantities of grinding media to be charged in an incremental manner such that shock loading is avoided. The multi-agent system created in JADE monitors the power drawn and the mill load of the ball mill such that proper charging conditions are established. High quality of the regulation process is achieved through utilization of the control logix and the multi-agent system.
