Abstract. The energy efficiency of transport systems consisting of several belt conveyors is significantly affected by re-direction. The proper sizing of several conveyor belts using deflector plates can significantly affect their efficiency. At present, there are no uniform rules (models) which specify the methodology and procedures for their design. This paper brings proposals of design of optimal parameters for energy-efficient operation of the transport system consisting of belt conveyors based on the new analytical simulation models. Recommendations for the practical application of transport systems at the transfer point have been designed according to optimization. The results are analysed in detail in three phases of shifting by means of a physical approach with the support of computing methods and simulation experiments with the transfer model. We can state that the direction and orientation of material impact have a direct influence on the conveyor's energy intensity. Thus, the inevitable condition for operation of arbitrary type of belt conveyor is to pay greater attention to the construction of the transfer model, particularly the intensity of the energy of the outgoing conveyor.

Short summary
An energy calculation model of outgoing conveyor with the application of a transfer chute with the damping plate was used. The direction and orientation of material impact have a direct influence on the conveyor's energy intensity. For the effective operation of conveyor belts, attention must be paid to the construction of the area of movement, especially in the outgoing conveyor. The other issue to be considered is the direction and orientation of material impact.
