  • Description:
    This part of the final report treats some problems related to coal mine carrier frequency communication systems using the trolley wire/track transmission line. This work was undertaken for a brief period of time during the summer of 1972 to help understand, quantify, and improve some of the trolley wire carrier system behavior observed and/or predicted. Calculations and estimates of transmission line characteristic impedance, inductance and capacitance per unit length, mine motor loading effects, parallel line effects, and connection impedances are presented in Chapter I. Chapter II treats the design of r-f isolators for reducing the undesired and troublesome r-f loading that mine motors present to the trolley transmission line. Chapter III treats a diversity method for combatting standing wave nulls. I. CALCULATIONS RELATED TO TROLLEY WIRE COMMUNICATIONS A. ESTIMATION OF INDUCTANCE AND CAPACITANCE PER UNIT LENGTH OF TROLLEY LINES To estimate the L and C per unit length of trolley lines, we use the eccentric line model of Section G of this Chapter, "Characteristic Imped┬Čance Estimates for Mine Trolley Lines." The capacitance per unit length for an eccentric line is given by (1)
