Abstract

Active tilt control is a well established technology in modern railway vehicles. This paper presents work on a set of novel strategies for achieving local (or vehicle-based) tilt control. A linearised dynamic model is developed for a modern tilting railway vehicle. It addresses the problems associated with straightforward feedback control, and presents the currently used command-driven with precedence strategy. Two new advanced schemes are proposed, a model-based estimation, and a robust H based approach. The performance of the control schemes is assessed via appropriate simulation results and a recently proposed tilt control assessment method.
