Mine power systems. Volume I.
Pittsburgh, PA: U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Mines, Contract J0155009, 1982 Jan; :1-568
This seven-chapter document is the first volume of a two-volume report that presents a comprehensive outline of coal mine electrical power systems from theory to practice. Together, the two volumes contain the vital aspects that go into planning and designing a mine power system. After a short introductory chapter, chapter 2 discusses the history of electrical use in mining and introduces typical mine power system arrangements. Chapters 3-5 supply basic information on electrical theory, circuit analysis, and motors. Chapters 6-7 detail unique aspects of mine power systems. Elements of surface and underground use are included in all chapters. An index concludes Volume I and is cross referenced to both report volumes.
