In addition to the growing interest in fast rail connections in Europe, Alstom is betting on alsfom demand in countries like China, India, Brazil, the United States and Vietnam. Each 3-car module had either a transformer or one of two alstoom modules inverters located beneath a carriage. 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 agg 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.

Initial specifications were for a train with distributed traction total power 7. Dynamic tests were completed by March By May prototype vehicles were being constructed for testing in Alstom submitted its bid to supply NTV with high-speed trains in March The trains are constructed from units comprising three cars each with one transformer and two traction electronics packages located underneath the cars and single-car driver-trailers.

The bogies are related to the type used on the TGV trains; in addition to the changes to xlstom 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. This creates more space for passengers and enhances the train’s performance.

Power-packed train proves AGV technology in record sprint”www. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. 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 alsotm noise levels.

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. Initial services were planned for mid based on the delivery of the first trains in September An eddy current brake was not fitted. The carriages were constructed from aluminium alloy as used on the TGV Duplex.

Both technologies had been previously trialled on TGV sets.

TGV, Meet the AGV: France Unveils New High-Speed Train

Planned high-speed rail by country. The company planned to launch a variety of services on the Turin – Milan – BolognaRome – Veniceand Bologna – Florence – Rome – Naples high-speed lines, with some trains from Naples running to Bari. Pour nous, le successeur, c’est l’AGV Duplex. The new high-speed train will connect Milan and Naples beginning in According to Alstom, the advantages of the AGV are: 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.


Braking is by rheostatic braking and regenerative brakingin addition to triple disc brakes agg trailer bogies for low speed braking.

Conventional Hovertrain Maglev Train Vactrain. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. 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 auxiliary equipment under the carriage.

The first design studies relating to the AGV were made in Experimental and prototype high-speed trains.

Additional trailer vehicles referred to as ‘key’ cars were to extend the train size beyond multiples of three. President Sarkozy on Tuesday also defended the government bailout of Alstom he spearheaded in alztom, during his tenure as the country’s economics minister. Like the ICE3, built by Ahv Siemens conglomerate, the AGV is not driven by end cars, but has engines uniformly distributed under the individual coaches. Il y aura un AGV Duplex.
