#### PDF A comparison of SAG mill power models

• P is the power evolved at the mill shell, kW • PN is an empirical "power number" which varies with mill filling and speed, unitless • ρCharge is the density of the mill charge as given in Equation 3, t/m³ Ball charge is not explicitly used in the power formula, but is considered in the mill charge density formula: %(1 234 567ˆˆ ...
