Continuous transport of waste on relative large distances, in different planes is a key problem of a sustainable waste management. A multi-section belt conveyor of cascade type is the best solution that enables a combined route, consisting of horizontal zones, sloped zones, connected by curve areas. Belt conveyors drive is usually performed through assemblies of type converter – three phase induction motors, designed to work under long term. The motor power depends on the transport productivity, as well as on its design, the lifting height, the distance to be transported the material and the type of material transported. Performance of such a continuous transport system can be pointed based on a numerical simulation model built by a software performance. MST numerical simulation model that we have conceived is based on MATLAB with its extensions SIMULINK and SimPowerSystems.
