about this item

This graduate textbook introduces the design of heavy haul locomotives, their primary systems for generating power and applying traction and braking, their mechanical systems, and their electric transmission systems. Later chapters model longitudinal train dynamics, driver control actions, traction control systems, the dynamic interaction between a locomotive and the track, and power systems for both electric and diesel-electric locomotives. A case study demonstrates a co-simulation technique that uses the GENSYS multibody software package to model the mechanical system and Simulink to model the traction control system.
