ABSTRACT

Restructuring of mining activity in Romania resulted in active implementation of reconstruction programs, upgrading and modernization of the mines in the Jiu Valley. These programs were aimed mainly at increasing labor productivity safely. Considering, along with requirements for ensuring a safe and healthy working environment, also the issues related to the drained methane valorization and to environmental protection restrictions it was imposed to rethink the so-called "global methane treatment" at the level of mine units. Investigation and research carried out so far focused primarily on the development of mathematical models and software tools that allow computer simulations of drainage systems aimed to optimize their design. Also, special attention was given to the critical analysis of the drainage systems management to establish functions and architecture of an automatic monitoring and control system of drainage units. As a logical consequence of steps taken so far in order to optimize the design and operation of the methane drainage systems in the paper they are shown how to implement automatic self-adjustment and optimization functions within the monitoring and automatic control system of drainage networks and are investigated the possibilities to achieve an expert system for the analysis of such networks.

Keywords: methane, drainage system, optimization, safety, expert system
