Abstract

In this paper, an adhesion control strategy based on the wheel-rail adhesion state observation is proposed for high-speed trains. First, the high-speed train single axle dynamics model is established. Then, a modified adhesion control method is proposed. The scheme observes the tangential force coefficient between wheel and rail through full dimension observer and forecasts the slope of the adhesion-slip curve by the recursive least squares method with forgetting factor. Meanwhile, a feasibility analysis of the method and the control parameters tuning is conducted. Afterwards, the experimental study of the proposed adhesion control is carried out based on a 5.5 kW induction motor drag platform using dSPACE simulation technology. The experimental results confirm the feasibility of the adhesion control method proposed in this paper. Using the proposed adhesion control method can achieve high wheel-rail adhesion performance under variable complex road conditions. View Full-Text
