PROBLEMS OF THE ADHESION COEFFICIENT OF ELECTRIC LOCOMOTIVES

PROBLEMY KOEFFICIENTA SCEPLENIJA ELEKTROVOZOV

The article examines: - the various adhesion coefficient concepts to be applied to these locomotives, - a method for determining the adhesion coefficient, - the tasks involved in making an objective evaluation of this coefficient, taking into account the running conditions of an electric locomotive when adhesion is at a maximum. In addition, details of the extent and methods for preparing a new method of determining the adhesion coefficient are given. A statistical study of wheel slipping must be made in order to establish a technically and economically optimal theoretical adhesion coefficient for electric locomotives in operation at present and for those which will be improved upon later, especially using electrical means for obtaining greater adhesion. This study is necessary because it takes into account all of the various aspects of adhesion. The study of wheel slip and the operation of the motor equipment of electric locomotives must be the basis for the creation of a method of controlling these locomotives by means of a constant command of adhesion.
