    Since the inception of mechanized mining technology, all electro-hydraulic control system of hydraulic supports depend on imports. But the high cost and price, long supply cycle, technological security, untimely service, unopened agreement severely restrict the development of China's coal industry, and even become into bottleneck problems of the developing highintensive production to achieve unmanned exploration despite its excellent performance and technical support in enhancing the country's coal production and efficiency. And coal is the main body of China's primary energy, accounting for 70% of total energy. "National Plan for long-term scientific and technological development" explicitly pointed out that "we should vigorously develop coal clean, efficient, safe mining and utilization technologies, and strive to reach the international advanced level." Around this development strategy, "intensive and efficient coal mining equipment and technology, automation and intelligent technology of coal production, coal mine safety production technology" has become a priority theme of development in China, and coal integrated mechanization and automation technology are the key link to achieve safe and efficient coal mining, while the hydraulic supports electro-hydraulic automatic control system is an important part of the link.

    Hydraulic supports electro-hydraulic control system is a distributed control system. There are these hydraulic support electro-hydraulic control system: DBT's PM4, MARCO company's PM31 and JOY's RS20-type and so on. The first fully mechanized caving hydraulic supports electro-hydraulic control system designed by the Coal Science Research Institute (Heaven and Earth Science and Technology Co., Ltd.) and the German Make has been running in Yanzhou Coal Mine. The system represents latest development level of the current electro-hydraulic control system, but the process of localization has not been yet completed.

    To this end, research for hydraulic supports electrohydraulic automatic control system with independent intellectual property has not only of great practical significance, but also has far-reaching historical significance.

    Hydraulic supports electro-hydraulic automatic control system is one network monitoring and control system with local control, LAN control and remote control , including ground control system, central control system, frame controller, network communication systems and power supply. The method resolves the ground control issues of hydraulic supports

    electro-hydraulic control system, which is remotecontrolled part and the master part of unmanned watching mining.

Some components, such as multileveled equations, graphics, and tables are not prescribed, although the various table text styles are provided. The formatter will need to create these components, incorporating the applicable criteria that follow.


    Implementation platform of this method is PowerBuilder. It can connect with any database, and has very strong applicability. Because of its powerful Data Window, adding a flexible SQL statements it provides a great deal of flexibility for data processing. In the PowerBuilder development environment, user interface design really achieve a "WYSIWYG", allowing programmers quickly to design their preferred interface in the interface design. Its rich graphical interface makes programming results even more icing on the cake. It’s unique characteristics of database management and friendly interface

    features with other external things, can widely use resources of other aspects, such as the tripartite control, etc. This system has used external things such as serial communication, OLE, OLE Database Blob features, and achieved serial communication functions with protocols such as MODBUS, PROFIBUS, and CANBUS, and completed the tasks of database dynamic storage, display graphics. In particular, it’s data pipeline makes data

    transmission from different databases on the Internet unique, data sharing between different database convenient, interfaces with other systems easily.

    A. The remote transmission method for hydraulic support control parameters and

    operating commands This method can remotely send a hydraulic support control

    parameters, control commands and operational commands, data send from IPC to the

    end controller. Then the end controller will collate the data and pass to each

    controller's serial port in master-slave mode such as Figure 1.

    There is the interface for sending long control parameters and operating commands. To send control parameters, first, type control parameters into the single editor and click "Parameter Send" with the mouse. To send operation commands, we must first specify the acting support frame, and then click the keyboard in the below right-half plane to select the function for support frame to complete, finally click "Operation Send". After receiving orders to send, the system must first change control parameters or operation commands red in character into the integer, because communications conduct crc checksum, and there is not XOR function in PowerBuilder. The changed integer are translated into binary code, and XOR function is achieved using binary characters to complete the crc checksum procedure. The implementation procedures are as follows: data1="1010000000000001"//a001H


    for l=1 to i




    for k=8 to 1 step -1



    if crc111=sj11 then




    end if


    crc1=left(crc1,8)+b1// Differences with the first L items of

    // data or results

for k=1 to 8

    crc11="0"+left(crc1,15)// Shift to the right one

    crc111=right(crc1,1)// Shifted to the right out of a


    if crc111="0" then



    for bb=16 to 1 step -1



    if crc111=sj11 then




    end if



    end if







    Where, i is the number to send the data, the last two sj [i] (left (crc1, 8), right (crc1, 8)) shall be the 16 bit checksum. And then the serial port would be started to complete serial communication with protocols such as MODBUS, PROFIBUS, and CANBUS. First, initialize the serial port:

    ole_1.object.commport=1 //





    Second, the address, command, the register read address, the register read number, verification codes in hexadecimal form are all sent out. Because there is no hexadecimal number representation in PowerBuilder, this system changes data into binary through transformation between the decimal and character, and then writes them to the serial port in the form of large binary text variables (blob). Realize combination of b_mode = b_mode + blob (CHAR (nn [i])), using the variables of blob type. when data sent is zero, b_mode = b_mode + b_00. Thus ole_1.Object.Output = b_mode successfully sent data to the serial port. Third, after the end controller receives the commands, it sends the instruction down to the corresponding hydraulic supports to make them complete the required functions on the one hand, and the other hand, it returns response messages notifying the IPC that it has received the command. Fourth, when the data dd is red from the serial port, it will be transformed into a form appropriate for arithmetic calculations by (asc (dd)).

B. the implementation method for real-time condition

    monitoring of hydraulic supports in working face In practice, the number of hydraulic support needed varies with the working face in mining coal, generally between 130 to 200, so it will be transmitted to end controller and the hydraulic support controllers as a controller parameter before work of mining. The real-time monitoring main interface for hydraulic supports in the working face is shown as Figure 2, in which, all the small long box frame mean hydraulic supports.

    The program automatically determine theirs location and width, and assign ordinal number to them according to the screen width and the number of. The number of the small long box frame is n times of the number of hydraulic supports; n is the number of information kinds reflecting the states of hydraulic supports. As the number of hydraulic supports and information is very large, there are 600 long-boxs or more in the interface. So it is impossible to program the script one by one, and also the setting. And the macro substitution must be used. Since PowerBuilder can not achieve macro substitution, the system successfully realize the macro substitution by identifying in turn RichTextEdit controls combined with the window function. The script is as follows:

    Environment my_syrteem

    Int li_ScreenWidth, li_ScreenHeight

    GetEnvironment(my_syrteem)// Get the total width and length

    of the screen

    li_ScreenWidth = PixelstoUnits(my_syrteem.ScreenWidth,


    li_ScreenHeight = PixelstoUnits(my_syrteem.ScreenHeight,


    this.Move((li_ScreenWidth - this.Width)/2,(li_ScreenHeight -

    this.Height - 600)/2 )





    integer li_count,sss1

    integer li_i,sr1,sr2

    li_count = upperbound(parent.control[])//Access to window

    //controls the number of in vivo

    richtextedit sr,srr,srr1,srr2,srr3// Statement richtextedit text

    //object, used to access the window controls in vivo

    FOR li_i = 1 TO li_count

    CHOOSE CASE parent.control[li_i].typeof() //parentBehalf of Form

    case richtextedit!// If the control is richtextedit text

    sr=parent.control[li_i]// Get the control reference


    sr.width=ss - sss1

    sr1=len(parent.control[li_i].classname()) sr1=sr1 - 4



    if sr2<=200 then


    if sr2>(zjs1 +1 )then


    end if

    sr.x = s1+ss*(sr2 - 1)


    if sr2>200 and sr2<=400 then

    sr.tag=string(sr2 - 200)

    if sr2>(zjs1+201) then


    end if

    sr.x = s1+ss*(sr2 - 200 - 1)


    if sr2>400 and sr2<=600 then

    sr.tag=string(sr2 - 400)

    if sr2>(zjs1+401) then


    end if

    sr.x = s1+ss*(sr2 - 400 - 1)

    end if

    end if

    end if

    end CHOOSE


    In the interface there are PowerBuilder's RichTextEdit controls(small long box frame)

    expressing hydraulic support, which has getfocus and mousemove events. When the mouse points to the small box, mouse event of pointed RichTextEdit control happens, showing hydraulic support number. If you want to understand the detailed running states of a hydraulic support, you can click this small long box frame, a window with tables, graphs and curves and other forms of information will pop up to display this bracket operation. There are three lines of small box in the interface, the first line of which show locality of the Shearer, the graphics expressing Shearer automatically moving to the position of the small box changing red; the second line show overrun state of Shearer, the small box becoming red; the third line show the STOP state of Shearer, the small box flashing red and yellow.

    The system can real-time monitor and long-term record the analog such as inferior vena pressure, stroke length and end length, as well as digital such as 1 grade care help, 2 grade care help, emergency stop, spray, the location of Shearer


    The system can display and reflect the running status of hydraulic supports with curves, histograms and pie charts, set control, data recording, data query and intelligence analysis as a whole, have a higher intelligence level. It is a kind of effective method for the long-range electro-hydraulic control for hydraulic support in the coal mine working face, At present it have been put into trial operation.
