TÜRASAŞ Eskişehir Regional Directorate Digital Transformation Office decided to transform the locomotive systems into a digital platform.
In this context, Turkey was the first implementation by local and national Diesel Electric Locomotives of developing algorithms design and operation of all electrical and electronic control system located in Eskisehir Regional Directorate de10000 TÜRASAŞ R & D Center.
Real-time data received from the subsystems of the DE10000 National Diesel Electric Maneuver Locomotive with TLMS (Türasaş Locomotive Monitoring System), which is a part of electrical-electronic control systems; The software was transferred to the machinist over HMIs (Human Machine Interface) with UIC612 standard user interfaces realized by TÜRASAŞ Eskişehir Regional Directorate personnel. In addition, by means of these softwares, around 200 data belonging to the related subsystems can be monitored remotely and used for diagnostic and recording purposes.
With TLMS, the information of units such as Vehicle Control Unit, Traction Control Unit, Diesel Engine Control Unit, Cooling Control Unit, Brake Control Unit are displayed. In addition, the availability of conditions related to starting, traction, diesel engine run, stop, idle commands, traction motor current, torque, speed, temperature, spin information, mechanic control inputs and some additional data for all systems are displayed.
THE BENEFITS OF THE TLMS AND CAR CONTROL SYSTEM IN THE DE10000 LOCOMOTIVE
Thanks to the digitalization studies, the interaction between the mechanic and the locomotive has been made much more ergonomic compared to the analog systems in old locomotives. In addition, data that constitute statistical value regarding malfunction records, specific alarm conditions and locomotive usage habits of the driver are recorded. Thanks to TLMS, which will make testing and fault finding easier in locomotive development, new system integration, breakdown repair and maintenance / revision processes, cost and time savings have been made in the aforementioned processes, making it easier to create the product suitable for customer requests on time.
Thanks to TLMS developed by TÜRASAŞ Eskişehir Regional Directorate's R&D Center, the experience required for the creation of the new generation TKYS (Train Control and Management Systems), accessing locomotive data via HMIs and integrating the hardware supporting GSM (Global System Mobile) technology Providing remote access to relevant data, creating the infrastructure of "cloud" and "Internet of Things" (IoT) technologies within the scope of "big data" management to perform statistical studies on the relevant locomotives, within the scope of "Predictive Maintenance". All the necessary experience has been gained to establish the necessary infrastructure to ensure compatibility.
SHORT, MEDIUM AND LONG-TERM DEVELOPMENT SYSTEMS
In the short term, hybrid locomotives, electric and diesel electric mainline and maneuver locomotives, diesel hydraulic locomotives and National YHT (High Speed Train), including in diesel electric maneuver locomotives, in the medium term, TÜRASAŞ Eskişehir Region It is aimed to be produced by the R&D Center of the Directorate with minimum costs.
On the other hand, in the medium term, within the scope of Industry 4.0 compliance processes, the sensor, sensor reader electronic cards, GSM equipment and "big data" management to be gained will be added in relation to the "Predictive Maintenance" studies to be carried out by TÜRASAŞ Eskişehir Regional Directorate R&D Center, " Thanks to the experiences of "cloud" and "Internet of Things" (IoT), statistical data collection studies will be able to be done to detect malfunctions in advance.
Academicians and entrepreneurs will be able to apply the most advanced applications of the world on the locomotives of TÜRASAŞ Eskişehir Regional Directorate. In the long term, thanks to the statistical data collected over a long period of time regarding the Industry 4.0 compliance processes and the expertise gained, all the requirements for "Predictive Maintenance" will be fulfilled and the locomotive maintenance / repair costs will be minimized.
