Abstract:Pantograph-catenary contact (interface) is the most crucial link to supply electrical power to loco drive. At high train speed, the loss of contact may occur due to the vibrations between the pantograph and catenary. In this paper, the fuzzy logic control is applied to minimize the vibrations in the force using different membership functions using MATLAB-Simulink software and the response is compared with PID controllers.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
