A formula for calculating the power requirements of an armored face conveyor (e.g. for coal mining applications) is presented. Techniques to determine the conveyor speed-torque curve and to estimate the acceleration time for a loaded conveyor are also given. Using this information, an algorithm to estimate the maximum length for a face conveyor is developed. An application of the algorithm to power system analysis is presented. By using the developed algorithm, the performance as well as the maximum length of a longwall face conveyor can be readily evaluated
