Rationale
Mining diploma holders are responsible to take decisions about maintenance and application of various electrical appliances in mines suitable for a particular point and purpose. So that effective electric supply should be maintain in mines. After studying this subject they will be able to understand how power is supplied in underground and surface mines. This subject provides them basic knowledge of cables used in mines, earthing practices as well as operations and maintenance of various electrical instruments and general electricity rules as applied to mines.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire different learning outcomes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes.

i. Draw layout of power distribution in a surface mine.
ii. Illustrate construction and safety features of electrical appliances used in mines.
iii. Describe safety standards for using various equipment safely in mines.
