The article discusses the aspects of the selection of parameters for gas-fueled reciprocating engines of mine dump truck power plants with due account for mining and operation conditions. The authors describe methods reducing harmful agent emission resulting from exhaust gases of mine machinery power plants. One of the most promising areas to the authors’ opinion is the use of natural gas as a motor fuel. The rationale is provided for the application of power plants with reasonable parameters in various mining conditions.
