An experimental validation tool for the development of transport systems and very high-speed ground/vehicle interfaces.
Grenoble wheel laboratory test bench for innovative transport systems. R&D centre for asynchronous linear motors.
- A unique expertise :
The result of several years of research and experimental validation in the calculation of sizing and design, with an industrial partner (Celduc Industries), for the manufacture of high-power induction linear motors, in a speed range of up to 300km/h.
- An exceptional test bench :
A test track consisting of a large wheel with three flywheels, one of which has 13 m diameter capable of exceeding a peripheral speed of 300 km/h (safety designed for 400 km/h), to test and validate:
- high-power asynchronous linear motors
- full-size linear motors traction/braking, powered by PWM inverter
- Track/vehicle interfaces up to high speed.
- Competitive and environmentally friendly industrial applications:
Research and experimental evaluation centre for a specific transport system (characterisation of ground/vehicle interfaces, sensors, energy transfer interfaces, etc.). Design and validation of back-up/launcher systems using linear induction motors, for special applications (road, rail and aeronautics).
