MNG T 209 Mine Machinery Control Methods (2)
"Mine Machinery Control Methods" is a third semester course for students in the Maintenance emphasis and provides information on the current methods used to operate and control the various driven functions of speed in rotating mining equipment. The interface between motors and computer controls, including the safety and automated interlocks will be covered. MNG T 030 is a required prerequisite to provide a technical functional understanding of the operation of the equipment being controlled. MATH 082 and PHYS 150 are required prerequisites to ensure that the students can perform the required performance calculations. Students who successfully complete this course will be able to:
a. Investigate various types of networked controls, their function and capability, and list the advantages and disadvantages of each.
b. Explain the applicable state and federal regulations related to low, medium, and high voltage systems.
c. Troubleshoot various types of control circuits to identify faulty wiring, components, or software.
d. Demonstrate ability to install software, set operating parameters, default values, and recommend adjustments to optimize system reliability.
e. Investigate the ramification of automated systems in the underground environment, both positive and negative.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
