Abstract

This paper proposes a generalised feed-forward artificial neural network model that fulfils the failure prediction of a three phase 5.8MW, 11 kV Slip-Ring SAG Mill Induction Motor at Goldfields Ghana Limited, Damang Mine. It provides a general understanding of three phase induction motors, faults associated with induction motors and also emphasizes the use of intelligent systems, particularly artificial neural network, a modern failure prediction technology of induction motors. Site analysis and motor data (Current, Power and Winding Temperatures) collection were conducted at the Damang Mine. Simulation results are presented using MATLAB software (2017a) package to develop the fault prediction model. The proposed feed-forward neural network used the Levenberg-Marquardt and Bayesian Regularisation in training.
