    Abstract

    This paper describes a dynamics and control study for rail vehicles using independently-driven wheel motors based upon a novel traction motor where the motor is embedded inside a wheel, and studies the dynamic behaviour of a rail vehicle equipped with such motors. The primary objective of the study is to develop practical control strategies that will use the independently-driven motors, not only to provide adequate traction and dynamic braking control, but also to stabilise the vehicle and to produce the necessary guidance action for the wheels especially on tight curves.
