Dual Mode Locomotive with both diesel and electric traction on the same vehicle

Dual-mode locomotive can be operated as diesel electric as well as electric locomotive. While operating in non electrified routes, dual-mode locomotive works as diesel electric locomotive by drawing power from onboard diesel engine as the primary power source. The same works as an electric locomotive by drawing power from catenary in electrified sections. The solution will help in operating a single locomotive continuously in electrified as well as non-electrified sections. 11

Guidance for Optimized Loco Driving (GOLD) (Fuel Savings and Emission Reduction) Medha's GOLD is a driver advisory system which helps the loco-pilot to complete the trip with lesser standard deviation from target completion time and with lesser fuel consumption as compared to similar trips on same route without any advisory assistance. LCD display provides realtime optimized speed profile vs current speed profile, advised vs current notch (or braking power) and other track and trip related data to help the driver complete the trip in most fuel efficient manner.  More than 10% fuel saving  More than 10% reduction in harmful emissions  Increased adherence to journey schedule timings  Driving comfort with reduced variation in journey times

 Trip optimization inputs include gradients, curvatures, applicable speed limits, signal post locations, stations and scheduled stoppages, train resistance coefficients, trailing load, train length, route kilometer, target journey time, formation type etc.

Works on principle that pareto front of different driving strategies for a journey plotted on Journey Time vs Fuel Consumed follows an inverse relationship. Any journey can be completed in different time intervals and there will always be one optimal driving strategy which consumes least energy (fuel) for given journey time. Trip completion time is used as basis to generate fuel optimized speed profiles. Depending on the status of completed trip and other completed events, the optimal speed profile changes with trip progress. The original speed profile is dynamically updated to generate optimized advisory speed profile for the remaining trip. Driver completes the trip with lesser standard deviation from target completion time and with lesser fuel consumption, as compared to similar trips on same route without any advisory assistance.

Main engine is shut-down after preset time of locomotive idling. Defined parameters such as battery voltage, brake pressure, lube oil temperature etc. are continuously monitored and incase any parameter is outside the permissible limit, main engine is restarted to bring the parameters back to required levels. The main engine shut-down cycle is continuously repeated to save on fuel consumption due to unwanted loco idling. Timings and parameter values are usersettable to suit locomotive operating conditions.

HVAC Controller Medha supplies HVAC controller unit for Metros for countries like USA which demands car inside temperature to be maintained within a narrow temperature range under conditions where the ambient temperature ranges from sub-zero levels to hot wether conditions. An advanced close-loop temperature control algorithm is used to achieve this temperature uniformity for passenger comfort. The unit controls the switching ON/OFF of air-conditioning and heating unit within the cabin. Temperature sensing within the cabin is distributed to compensate for localized fluctuation of temperature due to frequent opening of doors. Ambient temperature variation as per geographical location defines the capacity and rating of HVAC unit.
