BOGIE AND TRACTION ASPECTS OF HIGH SPEED LOCOMOTIVE DEVELOPMENT ON ITALIAN STATE RAILWAYS

Need for greater power to meet 180-200 km/h speeds with trains of 700 to 800 tons, resulted in the design of a 6300 kW locomotive. Test reports are given for bogies evaluated beneath a mock-up weighted locomotive body. Weight transfer between the axles of each bogie during acceleration has been avoided by the transmission of transition forces from a point near rail level. Weight transfer between the bogies is eliminated electrically. Data are charted on motor ratings, wheelbase, weight, dimensional details, etc.
