Statistical Evaluation of Inductive Effects in Mine Cables.
NTIS: PB/230-972 Available for Reference At Bureau Libraries :235 pages
This report (Contract No. G0122088) provides an analysis of Bureau of Mines data on induced voltages and currents in portable trailing cables and their influence on ignition hazard. The effects of cable configuration and length are considered under worst-case electrical load conditions. The advantage to be gained by the installation of diode bridges is quantitatively described, and a guide that eliminates the need for some physical measurement is included.
