    Abstract: This paper presents a mechatronic approach for the detection of wheel slip/slide and antislip control of locomotive with ac traction motors, to enable an optimal use of adhesion in poor contact conditions. The proposed technique explores the variations in wheelset dynamic properties caused by condition changes at the wheel-rail contact and detects ... Show More
