Failure Effects of Tilting Control System on Train


Article Preview

The mechanical-electrical coupled dynamic model of the tilting train is established in order to study the failure effects of tilting control system. Four kinds of movement of the driving actuator are compared, specifically including: normal tilting, no tilting, insufficient tilting and tilting on the contrary. The results has shown: when the tilting is insufficient or no tilting, the influence to the dynamic is small, the curve-passing speed reduces obviously; when tilting on the contrary, the dynamic performances of front bogie become worse and the curve-passing speed decreases much more.
