Traction Chain Performance
Contribute to the development or qualification of traction chains for all types of rail vehicles – electric or diesel – through on board dynamic testing.
- Check traction chain performance criteria in relation to the TSI (energy consumption)
- Determine performance of a power unit: Fj = f (V) curves during traction and electric braking
- Determine power and energy (active, reactive and apparent)
- Establish the power balance: Performance, power factor, etc.
- Establish the energy balance
- Determine resistance to forward motion values
- Data acquisition and processing devices (based on QMR-7)
- Voltage and current sensors (single-phase and continuous)
- Tachometric measuring device
