As mine-shafts are usually scattered over a considerable area, and the conditions in close proximity to the shafts are not such as to permit of the economical generation of electric power, the central electric station is usually placed at a considerable distance from the hoists. The power is generated and transmitted to the mines as alternating current, and is then transformed at each shaft into...
