In 2014 at Severny mine of Kola MMC OJSC a project for the construction of underground train automated control, alarm, signals and interlocking, blocking system was implemented by the mining department specialists under the leadership of project manager A.V. Myasnikov and chief engineer of the project E.R. Otitskiy. The mine signaling arrangement developed in the 1970s and used until recently did not allow to carry out electric haulage in compliance with the necessary security requirements. In this regard, a new innovative solution that would achieve greater safety, improve technical and economic indicators of operation of the underground railway transportation, and would also provide a complex automated processing of information on ore transportation was required.
Thanks to professionalism of programmers A.V. Makarov, D.V. Pirog, I.R. Mulyukov and engineers D.V. Lazarev, V.V. Kalina the problem was solved.
The results: The implemented control system allows to determine the position of moving trains at the level in real time with an accuracy of up to 5 m, which is the best value among analogues, including the foreign ones.
The main functions of the system are to ensure safety in accordance with existing rules and regulations and control haulage in manual and automatic modes. The system also allows to monitor the status and modes of operation of the equipment, analyze the causes of failures and generate operating logs of the performance of rolling stock and equipment providing more efficient planning of further work.
