Parameters Optimization of a Hydraulic Buffer System for Belt Arrestor in Downward Belt Conveyors
AbstractHydraulic buffer systems play a significant role in energy absorption and improving belt arrest reliability in downward belt conveyors. In order give hydraulic buffer systems more preferable buffer properties, a parameters optimization method based on a reference model is proposed. Firstly, the working principle of a hydraulic buffer system for a belt arrestor is provided. Secondly, the mathematical model of the system is built and a reference model of buffer chamber pressure is constructed utilizing a second-order system. Furthermore, a genetic algorithm is introduced to optimize the system parameters. Finally, some simulation examples are carried out on the Simulink software. The simulation results show that the pressure peak in buffer process can drop down and that pressure fluctuation in buffer end processes decrease substantially after optimization. The parameters optimization method for hydraulic buffer systems is applicable to different structure parameters of the buffer cylinder. View Full-Text
