Experimental testing of open pit dump trucks in operating conditions

The high importance of optimizing the operation of quarry transport is confirmed by the leading share of its costs in the total cost of mining. The current direction of optimization is the development and implementation of digital technologies for processing complex data on the parameters of transport vehicles. The solution of the above issues should be based on the results of scientific research on the collection and processing of information. Developed a set of techniques to perform experimental measurements of working parameters of mining dump trucks as part of a special unit experiments, and long monitoring measurements. A set of equipment for performing experimental measurements, as well as its installation on a dump truck is presented. The data of experimental measurements and a methodical approach to their analysis are presented. In particular, it shows the identification of operating modes of the power plant and the construction of the load diagram, the identification of elements of the transport cycle, etc. The approach to substantiation of innovative designs of power plants adapted to the conditions of a particular quarry is shown on the example of calculated schedules of energy consumption and reserve of recovery of braking energy. The proposed hardware-methodical complex is a research model for the development of methods for automated data collection and processing in the formation of elements of digital mining production.

Keywords: quarry dump truck, experimental measurements, monitoring, technical condition assessment, data analysis.
