DEVELOPMENT OF A SYSTEM FOR POWER OUTPUT CO-OPERATION BETWEEN ELCTRIC RAILCARS AND DIESEL RAILCARS

Much difficulty has been encountered in a co-operation control of multiple operation between electric cars and diesel cars, because the structure and performance of the respective control systems are very different from each other. The authors propose a new co-operation control system based upon an entirely new concept. This system changes a general notch order into a suitable notch order for the diesel car, depending on the electric car's speed. The system was mounted on the Japan Railway Group's (JR) electric and diesel cars and tested on the main line of JR Kyushu. Based on this test result, introduction of the system in commercial service was decided upon and practical operation began on 29 April 1989.
