Abstract
A whole-mine experiment to assess the practical feasibility and utility of the dedicated-wire technique to overcome poor trolley carrier phone system performance at a large underground coal mine was designed, performed, and evaluated. The technique involves the use of a single, low-loss, properly terminated, and branched auxiliary wire placed in the rail haulageway. This auxiliary dedicated wire allows signals to electromagnetically couple to the trolley wire-rail transmission line and thereby significantly decreases the overall signal attenuation rate on the trolley wire- rail line. The in-mine dedicated-wire demonstration program and its results, conclusions, and recommendations are described.
