  • Mine duty controllers

    The paper is devoted to discussion of the advisable types of control to be used for various mining equipment, particularly in bituminous coal mines. Complexity and theoretical details have been eliminated as far as practicable with the idea of impressing on the reader the need for certain definite features, without going into the theoretical details of these features. Electric controllers for equipment outside of the mine proper as a rule have to meet different operating conditions than those controllers which are installed underground. The operating conditions are taken up in detail and proper control equipment is suggested to meet these conditions. The object of the paper is to bring out clearly to the mine operatives the fact that suitable control equipment is just as important as the installation of a suitable motor, and moreover that no motor, however well adapted to the service, will stand up properly if it is not operated with a controller designed and built specifically to meet the existing installation and operating conditions.

  • Discussion on “purchased power in coal mines” (Eddy) and “central station power for coal mines” (Beers), Pittsburgh, Pa., April 18, 1913. (see proceedings for April, 1913)

    K. A. Pauly: We are very fortunate to have secured these valuable papers on this very important subject of central station versus isolated plants for coal mines. Many of the points brought out might readily form the subjects for separate papers. Such papers are especially valuable because they give the views of engineers, who, because of their experience, are eminently competent to deal with the subject. I do wish, however, to point out and emphasize the agreement between these three engineers whose opinions are based on actual and independent experiences, representing both sides of the question. While there are doubtless large mining companies which can and do maintain highly efficient and economical electric generating and distributing systems, it appears to me to be a foregone conclusion that in general — and this is especially true of all but the larger companies — a public service corporation should be in a position to deliver power at a lower cost than it can be produced in an isolated plant and that, in addition, the service should be much more reliable.

  • Discussion on “does it pay the average coal mine to purchase central station power?” (Bright), Pittsburgh, Pa., April 27, 1912. (see proceedings for May, 1912)

    E. D. Dreyfus: We are indebted to Mr. Bright for having added another interesting chapter on the subject of electric drive and the use of central station power and in taking the opportunity of opening the discussion I wish to make note of some important facts which should be kept in mind in connection with the quotation of rates for power purposes. Mr. Bright has been obliged to confine his comparisons to specific cases only and personally I feel that his deductions are very instructive and valuable.

  • Central station power for coal mines

    The use of electricity in the production of anthracite is rapidly increasing, and hence, its ultimate cost per kilowatt-hour is an important factor in cheap production. An analysis of fixed charges and operating costs of small mining stations indicate that the installation of such stations by mine operators is not always the method that results in the cheapest cost for this form of power, particularly when central station service is available There are several reasons that contribute to this. 1. Present methods of producing steam at collieries are comparatively wasteful. 2. Facilities are not always present for the most economical use of steam. 3. Operating costs are usually based on the kilowatt-hour cost at the main station switchboard and transmission cost are not included, whereas in central station service the cost is net at the substation switchboard. 4. The resulting load factors in several small plants are not to be compared to the resulting load factor on one large central station. 5. The operator is apt to lose sight of the large investment per kilowatt required for the mining plant. This expenditure is not present when making use of central station service. 6. Stand-by loses form a large part of the annual operating cost of the mining plant. Careful consideration of each of the above points will indicate to the operator the most economical proposition to adapt.

  • Purchased power in coal mines

    In this paper, the author points out the commercial aspects of purchased power, vs. the isolated plant in the bituminous coal fields of Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio. The adverse conditions affecting the operation of isolated plants and the fundamental causes of high costs of power per ton of coal mines are given, and are contrasted with the advantages to the mine operation of the purchase of power when available. The characteristics of mine power business are briefly described with a view of showing the reasons why central stations can afford to make low rates for this class of business.

  • Central station power in coal mines

    The increased activity of central station operators in developing markets for power makes this subject of considerable interest to electrical engineers in general and particularly to the engineers of this immediate locality.

  • Mine substations – I their construction and operation

    The use of electricity in mines has been making rapid progress throughout the United States. Steam and compressed air are being superseded largely by central station power. Power from a central station requires a substation to supply direct current to operate locomotives, cutting machines, etc. A substation is used to transform high-voltage a-c. power to direct current at 250 or 500 volts. Substations, when possible, should be located on the surface, because if located underground there is danger from fire, and dampness weakens insulation and causes corrosion of metallic parts. Construction of an underground substation is more costly than on the surface, as there is danger of the roof giving way. The roof should be arched, or built of heavy concrete and the whole station made fireproof. When substations are located underground it is necessary to carry a high-tension cable through bore-holes. When located on the surface a low-tension cable can be used. Many accidents occur because of incompetent men. Good salaries should be paid and competent men obtained. Danger warnings should be posted and men taught to consider wires as being “live”, thereby lessening accidents.

  • Does it pay the average coal mine to purchase central station power?

    In the application of central station power to coal mines the successful operator of today is sometimes at a loss to know just what saving will be effected, for the following reasons: first, he believes that he is producing power at a fairly low cost, due to cheap fuel, simple apparatus and low cost of buildings; second, hot knowing approximately his costs in detail, he is at first unable to see his saving, if any, as compared with a definite rate per kw-hr. for central station power; third, the use of central station energy often requires the purchasing of new apparatus, and the selling of the present generating apparatus under unfavorable conditions.

  • Discussion on “central station power for mines” (Jenks) and “characteristics of substation loads at the anthracite collieries of the D.L. & W. Ry. Co.” (Warren and Biesecker), Pittsburgh, Pa., April 18, 1913 (see proceedings for April, 1913)

    Graham Bright: Mr. Jenks has given us some very interesting historical matter. In the first part of his paper he mentions the early prejudice of the operators in regard to the purchase of central station power. I think this early prejudice was justifiable, when we consider that central stations had not made any records for themselves, and the operator had no way of telling what the continuity of service was going to be. As we know, in any new industry the pioneer usually stands the cost of development while those who follow reap the benefits, and you can hardly blame those early operators for having a prejudice against the use of central station power.

  • Discussion on “motor-generator sets vs. synchronous converters in mine substations” (Hoen), and “mine substations; their construction and operation” (Booker), Pittsburgh, Pa., April 10, 1914. (see proceedings for April, 1914)

    W. A. Thomas: Unquestionably from the standpoint of economy the synchronous converter is superior to the motor-generator set, but in a careful analysis of the mining conditions, and the ultimate results to be accomplished, the question of the kilowatt-hours per ton in transformed energy constitutes a relatively small proportion of the total cost. The method of distribution of the direct current which has been converted has a great bearing on this question. As pointed out in Mr. Hoen's paper, the energy in the small mine is carried through one opening which is the main entry, and when the bituminous mine, particularly, as distinguished from the anthracite mine, comes to the commercial condition requiring electric haulage, the power is mainly consumed some distance from the entry. The distance of the point of consumption from the mine entry in the average bituminous field is probably upwards of a mile.
