Title: LOCOMOTIVE ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS SIMULATOR
Abstract:
A system for simulating electrical systems of a diesei-electric locomotive comprising includes a first electric motor for simulating a locomotive diesel engine and a generator coupled to the electric motor for simulating a locomotive main generator in a main generator operating mode. A second electric motor is driven by an electrical output of the generator in the main generator operating mode and simulates a locomotive traction motor. A third electric motor is coupled to the second electric motor and operates as a generator providing a load on the second electric motor during simulated locomotive motoring operations.
