Due to the great differences in mechanical properties between hard concretion and coal, the shearer drum cutting coal and rock containing hard concretion will inevitably lead to a series of problems, such as severe load impact, increased cutting specific energy consumption and low coal loading efficiency. Taking the cutting part of a thin coal seam shearer in service in the target mining area as the prototype, the mechanical models of shearer drum and rocker arm are established by using UG, and the discrete element model of coal wall with hard concretions is built by importing it into EDEM. The influence law of traction speed on coal loading rate, drum load and cutting specific energy consumption is analyzed, and the corresponding fitting relationship function is obtained. Taking the traction speed as the design variable, and the drum load, cutting specific energy consumption and coal loading rate as the comprehensive indicators, a multi-objective optimization function is established. The optimal solution is obtained by using NSGA II optimization algorithm, and the accuracy of the simulation is verified by experiments. This method has certain engineering significance for the reasonable selection of shearer traction speed.
Key words: Hard concretion / traction speed / coal loading rate / specific energy consumption / multi-objective optimization
