READHESION CONTROL METHOD WITHOUT SPEED SENSORS FOR ELECTRIC RAILWAY VEHICLES

This paper describes a slip detection method for electric trains that focuses on the currents of each traction motor and does not use speed sensors. It features a novel anti-slip re-adhesion control method. The slips are detected by finding the torque current difference between induction motors. Simulation results and running tests using a Shinkansen train verify the effectiveness of the proposed method. Using this method, it is found that even small wheel slips can be detected. It is expected that the performance of this control method will be as high as that of the control method that uses speed sensors.
