Centre for Electric Transportation
BHEL has established with UNDP assistance, the Centre for Electric Transportation (CET) serving as the nodal agency for carrying out systemsoriented research in the area of electric transportation.
The evaluation of propulsion system of rail vehicles under simulated load conditions is undertaken by:
Computer simulation (empirical models)
Testing on Performance Simulator (Roller Rig)
Study of vehicle dynamics of rail vehicles by computer simulation using mathematical models
with in-house validation facility
Automation system for real time computer control and data acquisition.
Assistance in evaluation, selection and introduction of mass transit systems in large cities
Technology scanning and technical documentation library.
A battery of Mayes-Unisteel constant load stress-corrosion testing machines.
Major facilities at the centre
Performance Evaluation Lab
Evaluation by Computer Simulation for evaluating propulsion system performance.
Testing on performance simulator (Roller Rig) for the testing powered rail vehicles for Powering,
Coasting, Braking, Speed Limit and Wheel Slip
Vehicle Evaluation Lab (Dynamic / Structural Analysis and Testing)
Dynamic Analysis of vehicle as multi-body by mathematical modelling for Stability Analysis, Vertical Dynamics, Steady State Curving and Ride Quality Analysis.
Structural Integrity Analysis by finite element method.
Servo hydraulic closed loop test system for Component characterization, Validation of simulation results, Life cycle test of components and sub-assemblies.
