Digital Computation of Transients and Safety Testing of Mine Electrical Power Systems.
NTIS: PB 283 400 Available for Reference At Bureau Libraries :200 pages
This annual report deals with a multifaceted research effort to increase mine electrical system safety. Task one deals with development of tests and instrumentation to perform those tests that are designed to detect incipient faults on mine power systems. Task two concerns the prediction and suppression of mine electrical transients. Task three deals with the reliability and fail-safe assessment of various components of the mine electrical system including both the protective system and the bulk power system components. Task three also deals with theoretical analysis, laboratory testing, and in situ testing in coal mines of power system devices. Task four is an effort to design an optimal mine electrical distribution system. Task five is an attempt to optimize the selection of molded case circuit breakers, makes, or models on the basis of total annual cost. Task six assesses the availability of equipment to satisfy existing federal regulations.
