#### Optimal Speed Control for a SemiAutogenous Mill Based on ... MDPI

Speed rate refers to the ratio of the speed of the mill to the critical speed, where the critical speed is n c = 30 / R. In practice, the speed rate of the SAG mill is generally 65% to 80%. Therefore, in the experiment, the speed was set to vary in 50% and 90% of the critical speed ( rad/s) for the crossover test as shown in Table 2.
