Modelling of Energy Demand in a Sawmill (2006)
AuthorsMcCurdy, M., Li, J., Pang, S.show all
An empirical model was developed to predict the electrical energy used by a sawmill comprising of debarking, chipping, sawing and grading operations. The input parameters for the model were log volume, surface to volume ratio of timber products and conversion rate to timber and chips. The model can predict the energy requirements of the sawmill with an error of less than 5% for normal production levels.
