Abstract

This paper presents a study of state estimation for active steering of profiled wheels. Fundamental characteristics of a solid-axle wheelset are explained and the potential benefits of active steering are discussed. The paper studies the non-linearity of the wheelset caused by profiled wheel-rail contact surfaces and develops a recursive non-linear Kalman filter to provide reliable and accurate estimations of the wheelset state. Real wheel and rail profiles are used in the study and a non-linear model is developed to represent the wheelset. Computer simulations are used to verify the design and assess its performance.
