Abstract : An analysis is made of a specialized computer designed to solve the problem of increasing the output of a coal treatment plant. The computer consists of a section for input of initial data in the form of enrichment curves, sections for computing values of the coordinates of these curves, units for input of values of the coefficients qi and the assigned value of average ash content of the overall concentrate, the decision element, tthe null-balance device, and the output unit. The computer works as follows: the values of average ash content of the concentrate and coefficient qi are loaded into the computer to determine the fraction of each of the classes of coal in percent of the total. During the process of solution, the values of the coordinates of the enrichment curves are calculated at points of equal derivatives M'1 = M'2M'3 and the differential equations are solved at these points. When equality is achieved between the two halves of the equation, the null-balance device operates and the computing process is halted. The output device can be used to develop all the data of interest to the operator, such as total concentrate yield, yield of concentrate by classes, etc. (Author)
