In the practice of operating mining machines and complexes, there are no effective ways to monitor the state of insulation and protect a person from electric shock in a network with voltages up to 1000 V. There is a risk of electric shock with a fatal outcome for personnel. Consequently, the issue of development of methods for monitoring the state of insulation and protection against electric shock in a network up to 1000 V for mining machines and complexes is relevant and urgent. The existing protection of a person from electric shock effectively works provided that the total insulation resistance is commensurate with the capacitive insulation resistance of the phases of the electrical network relative to the ground. But, at mining enterprises, a violation of ratio takes place between the total and capacitive insulation resistance of the network, which leads to failure of the protection against electric shock. Therefore, to ensure electrical safety criteria when operation of electrical installations in the network is up to 1000 V, it is necessary to consider the insulation condition and the technical capabilities of available protection against electric shock in a complex.
