Field evaluation of coal mine monitoring and control systems yields data on installation and maintenance, but does not provide a full evaluation of these systems under all possible conditions. Also, the differences in installations and configurations do not allow the performance of different systems to be measured and compared. Under contract of the United States Bureau of Mines (USBM), the West Virginia University (WVU) Department of Electrical Engineering has designed criteria for evaluation of monitoring systems, and a test facility for simulation of mine conditions. This facility provides evaluation of monitoring and control systems under both normal and abnormal conditions. This paper describes the test criteria chosen, the design of the test facility, and the experiences of tests performed on mine monitoring systems to date.
