GOODALL, R.M. and WARD, C.P., 2015. Active control of railway bogies – assessment of control strategies. Presented at The International Symposium on Speed-up and Sustainable Technology for Railway and Maglev Systems (STECH 2015), Chiba, Japan, Nov 10-12th.
A number of configurations for active control of railway vehicle bogies are assessed in a consistent framework to provide an effective comparison, using a typical modern bogie as a baseline. For each configuration appropriate control strategies are identified and their relative performances are assessed in terms of straight track stability, curving performance and control requirements.
