Abstract [en]

A vibro-acoustic modal model of a traction motor forrailway applications is presented based on an experimentalmodal analysis of the system. Noise requirements forrailway traction motors are getting more and moredemanding as part of the overall levels of new rolling stock.It is therefore of great interest to understand and predict thevibro-acoustic behaviour of electromagnetic noisegenerated by traction motors. The modal parameters arederived from an experimental modal analysis. The primarysource for the radiated sound of the tested traction motor isthe radial deflections of the stator shield. The modalparameters for the radial deflections are implemented in areduced order modal model in a state space format usingMatlab/Simulink. Only the structural modes that have amatch in both the frequency and the spatial domain withthe electromagnetic excitation force will cause animportant vibro-acoustic response. This makes it possibleto create an accurate and efficient reduced order modalmodel with only a fraction of the total number of structuralmodes. The simulation results from the modal model arecompared to measured levels of vibration and acousticmeasurements of the motor.

Abstract [en]

An annoying tonal noise is produced by modern electrical trains duringacceleration and deceleration. This noise is caused by electromagneticforces generating structural vibrations, especially from the traction motors.The electromagnetic noise is dominant at low train speeds and affectsboth the passengers on the train and on platforms, as well as peopleliving near the track. The focus on this issue has increased the last years,both regarding legislation, contractual requirements and also because ofexpectations from citizens and travelers. To be able to design low noiseelectric drive systems, a thorough understanding of the cause and thepossibility to predict the electromagnetic noise is needed. This thesisdescribes the modelling and simulation of an complete multi-physicsreal-time environment for prediction and analysis of the electromagneticnoise. The simulation results are validated against measurements of thestructural vibration and acoustic response of a real traction motor fed bya power converter running in the entire operational range.
