Because there are no known studies of mine electrical system transient problems, a literature review of electrical utility investigations of transient phenomena was prepared. This study centers around transients caused by circuit breaker operation (especially vacuum interruptors), power factor correction, and fault switching. Chopping and prestrike are considered to be two major causes of transients. The work of more than 20 authors is covered. A system assembled by the Bruceton, Pennsylvania, research facility of the Bureau of Mines for the purpose of recording mine power system transients is described. The report also covers field operations and initial measurements.
