Abstract Automatic distribution of airflow between the various areas of a mine is obtained by remote control of active or passive regulators, coordinated through a central control system. Various phases of the development of the ventilation system are presented: development of a mathematical model; automatic network; model of methane outburst; design and regulation of ventilators or ports; supervision, remote measurements, filtering. The remote-controlled regulator, the control and measurement equipment, and the control programme are described in detail.
