Abstract
Systems analytical techniques have been formulated and applied to quantitatively assess the relative safety merits of four shuttle car power systems for use in underground coal mines. Results from two techniques--forced decision analysis and fault tree analysis-- suggest the open-cycle diesel to be the most desirable of the power systems studied, with the closed-cycle diesel being next, followed by the battery-motor and the electric cable-reel. Two basic mine shuttle-car configurations were considered for incorporation of a closed diesel powerplant. Engineering designs, performance parameters, and the logistics of servicing the power systems were formulated. The utilization of the closed diesel shuttle car as an emergency rescue vehicle was discussed.
