Category High-speed rail List of high-speed trains. Initial services were planned for mid based on the delivery alsto, the first trains in September Part of rail transport. The AGV acronym for French: The transformers were mounted in the driving cars, with the other two cars of the three car modules each carrying a traction converter ONIX water cooledwhich also integrate auxiliary converters, the middle ‘key’ car carried afv equipment under the carriage.

An eddy current brake was not fitted.

Both SNCF and its German counterpart, Deutsche Bahn, plan to review all competitive bids when choosing high-speed trains in the future. The carriages were constructed from aluminium alloy as used on the TGV Duplex. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. The design was complete enough to be frozen by July They were smaller and had a higher efficiency than asynchronous motors and a higher power-to-weight ratio, as well as having the potential for lower noise levels.

In other projects Wikimedia Commons. With French President Nicolas Sarkozy in attendance, Alstom unveiled its new, fourth-generation high-speed train at its headquarters in La Rochelle. In the spring ofa test train employing AGV technology set a speed record for rail vehicles of alston The bogies are related to the type used on the TGV trains; in addition to the changes to traction motor type and installation, the bogies are constructed of a high tensile steel, for lighter weight, the bogie wheelbase is 3m as with the TGV.


The new high-speed train will connect Milan and Naples beginning in Initial alsfom were for a train with distributed traction total power 7.

Very High Speed Train (TGV/AGV) – Alstom

The design would retain the articulated Jacobs bogie of the TGV. The trainsets were to be made up of modules of 3-car sets with two powered bogies per module. Power-packed train proves AGV technology in record sprint”www.

This creates more space for passengers and enhances the train’s performance. Each 3-car module had either a transformer or one of two traction modules inverters located beneath a carriage. Bypermanent-magnet synchronous motor technology had become mature enough to use in a commercial product, and was incorporated into the design allowing a bogie-mounted instead of frame-mounted traction motor, with higher efficiency and lower overall weight.

According to Alstom, the advantages of the AGV are: Where sources conflict more recent value is taken. Like the ICE3, built by Germany’s Siemens conglomerate, the AGV is xgv driven by end cars, but has engines uniformly distributed under the individual coaches.

Dynamic tests included measuring traction motor, braking rheostat, transformer and inverter cooling under high-speed conditions, as well as aerodynamic tests on airconditioning system performance at high speed. This would have led to serious tensions between Paris and Berlin.

Braking is by rheostatic braking and regenerative brakingin addition to triple disc brakes on trailer bogies for low speed braking. Planned high-speed rail by country. Conventional Hovertrain Maglev Train Vactrain. The floor level is kept practically constant throughout the train, including at inter-coach connections.


Testing times ahead”www. The TGV is still driven by locomotives at the front and rear of the train. Il y aura un AGV Duplex. On Monday, the Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper reported that Deutsche Bahn is considering bids from both Siemens and Alstom for an upcoming order of up to 15 high-speed trainsets.

The new design was the first high-speed train design in modern times that had inter-vehicle articulation and distributed traction. Two coaches were constructed; a driving and an intermediate cab, with both trailer and motor bogies; for testing the units were attached to a four car TGV Reseau set. This page was last edited on 31 Decemberat List of high-speed railway lines.

By May prototype vehicles were being constructed for testing in Pour nous, le successeur, c’est l’AGV Duplex. Both abv had been previously trialled on TGV sets. The AGV is the new “miracle weapon” from a company that has built more than 70 percent of all the trains worldwide capable of traveling faster than kilometers per hour mph. Canada Mexico United States. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Design of the train took place through the early s, with a prototype, alstlmproduced in Experimental and prototype high-speed trains category.

According to Alstom, the AGV is more energy-efficient, more robust and requires less maintenance than its predecessor generation.

Dynamic tests were completed by March The first design studies relating to the AGV were sgv in By providing Alstom with billions in government assistance inSarkozy also prevented Siemens from acquiring parts of the company.
