Abstract: In the field of mines, there are dozens of methods concerned with the optimization of ventilation system in underground mines and how bad ventilation system is playing a major effect on miners and mine’s activities. The ventilation system is considered very important because it consumed
high energy of mines of total power consumption. This paper is a review of previous studies, which have been done before on design of ventilation system and its optimization methods like, using of software tools to simulate the numerical equations based on the pressure, temperature, flow rate,
and other effected parameters, which are recorded by various ways of surveying. It has observed that Ventsim software is widely used because of its flexibility in dynamic simulation based on various parameters included deep, fan position and flow rate.
