It is a production unit owned by Indian railways , for which it manufactures diesel-electric locomotive and its spares parts.  To meet the increased transportation needs of the Indian railways it was established in collaboration with M\s ALCO( American Locomotive Company), USA.  Founded in 1961, the D.L.W. rolled out its first locomotive three year later, on January 3, 1964. It manufactures locomotives which are variants based on the original ALCO design dating to 1960s and the GM EMD design of the 1990s.  has evolved into an integrated dieselIt electric locomotive manufacturing plant, capable of building all components of the locomotive in-house, including the engines, super structures, and

fabricated bogies and under frames.

 Diesel-electric locomotive were introduced to exploit their versatility, maintenance requirements and cost effectiveness as compared to steam engine.  got its first ISO certification in 1997 and ISO-9001 and ISO-14001 in December 2002.  with technology transfer agreement from manufacturers such as GM-EMD, DLW today produces advance locomotives having output range from 2600 to 4000 hp.  It has supplied locomotives to other countries such as Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Tanzania and Vietnam etc.  Diesel-electric locomotive were introduced

to exploit their versatility, maintenance requirements and cost effectiveness as compared to steam engine.

the operating environment is much more attractive.  .  Steam locomotives require intensive maintenance. being much quieter.  The thermal efficiency of steam was considerably less than that of Diesel engines. lubrication and cleaning before. making them ideal for switching/shunting duties in yards. fully weatherproof and without the dirt and heat that is an inevitable part of operating a steam locomotive.steam Diesel’s advantages over They can safely be operated by one person. during and after use.

 The pressure created by the combustion of the fuel drives the piston downward.PRINCIPLE OF DIESEL ENGINE When the piston is at the top of its travel.  The air in the cylinder is raised to about 500600 psi which raises the temperature inside to about 1000 0 F.  Diesel fuel is sprayed into the cylinder by the injector and immediately ignites because of the heat and pressure inside the cylinder. the cylinder contains a charge of highly compressed air. This is the  .

.“power stroke”.

As the piston nears the bottom of its stroke. it uncovers the air intake ports. This is the ”compression stroke”.  . all of the exhaust valves open.  The exhaust valves close and the piston starts travelling back upward. relieving the pressure  As the piston bottoms out. Pressurized air fills the cylinder. re-covering the intake ports and compressing the fresh charge of air. forcing out the remainder of the exhaust gases. Exhaust gases rush out of the cylinder.

there may simply be an exhaust outlet and fuel inlet instead of a valve system. cooling systems: Combustion generates a great dea of heat. Its purpose is to transfer force from expanding gas in the cylinder to the . Cooling systems usually employ air or liquid (usually water) cooling. 4. Piston: It is located in a cylinder and is made gas-tight by piston rings. both chemical and noise pollution. and some of this transfers to the walls of the engine.engine Components in diesel 1. 2. Valves: For a two-stroke engine. Exhaust systems: The exhaust system frequently contains devices to control pollution. 3.

5. In two-stroke engines the piston also acts as a valve by covering and uncovering ports in the cylinder wall. This means that the linear motion of a piston must be converted into rotation.crankshaft via a piston rod and/or connecting rod. . Crank shaft: Most reciprocating internal combustion engines end up turning a shaft. This is typically achieved by a crankshaft.

. 7. Starter systems: All internal combustion engines require some form of system to get them into operation. Lubrication Systems: Internal combustions engine Require lubrication in operation that moving parts slide smoothly over each other.6. friction. Insufficient lubrication subjects the parts of the engine to metal-tometal contact. heat build-up etc. Most piston engines use a starter motor powered by the same battery as runs the rest of the electric systems.

the diesel engine drives an electrical Generator or alternator whose output provides power to the traction motors.Diesel-electric locomotive  In a diesel-electric locomotive. two stroke ) The main generator or alternator Traction motor  Control system consisting of the engine governor  Electrical or electronic component to control or modify the electrical supply to the traction motions  Inverters  . The important components of dieselelectric propulsion are : Diesel engine ( 16 cylinder . There is no mechanical connection between the engine and the wheels.



Alternating voltage may be generated by rotating a coil in the magnetic field or by rotating a magnetic field within a stationary coil. • The speed at which the coil or magnetic field rotates. The speed corresponding to a particular frequency is called the synchronous speed for that frequency. Rpm at 50 Hz Rpm at 60 Hz 2 4 3000 1500 3600 1800 . The value of the voltage generated depends on • The number of turns in the coil. • Strength of the field. Synchronous Speed The output frequency of an alternator depends on the number of poles and the rotational speed.

4. .. 6.The relation between speed and frequency is given by N = 120f / P Where f is the frequency in Hz (cycles per second) P is the number of poles (2. Coefficient of traction: The coefficient of traction is defined as the usable force for traction divided by the weight on the running gear (wheels..) and N is the rotational speed in revolutions per minute (RPM) Traction Traction refers to the maximum frictional force that can be produced between surfaces without slipping.

e.tracks etc) i. . Usable Traction = coefficient of Traction x Weigh As the coefficient of traction refers to two surfaces which are not slipping relative to one another it is the same as Coefficient of static friction.

• Macroscopic and microscopic shape .Factors affecting tractive coefficient • Traction between two surfaces depends on several factors including: • Material composition of each surface. • Normal force pressing contact surfaces together. as it allows for more energetic acceleration (including cornering and braking) without wheel • Slippage. • . • Relative motion of tractive surfaces In the design of wheeled or tracked vehicles. high traction between wheel and ground is more desirable than low traction. • Contaminants at the material boundary including lubricants andadhesives.

is designed to prevent loss of traction of the driven road wheels. also known as Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR). and therefore the control of the vehicle.Traction control system Attraction control system (TCS). . if the vehicle is fitted with drive by wire throttle. when excessive throttle is applied by the driver. • • The intervention can consist of one or more of the following: • Retard or suppress the spark to one or more cylinders • Reduce fuel supply to one or more cylinders • Brake one or more wheels • Close the throttle.


the .Bogie A bogie is a wheeled wagon or trolley. In mechanics terms. attached to avehicle. a bogie is chassis or framework carrying wheels. Usually the train floor is at a level above the bogies. but the floor of car may be lowerbetween bogies .


A device which performs the opposite function (converting DC to AC) is known as an inverter. a process known as rectification. Rectifiers are of two types: a) Half wave rectifier b) Full wave rectifier .Rectifiers A rectifiers an electrical device that converts AC to DC. Rectifiers have many uses including as components of power supplies and as detectors of radio signals.

An extremely important function for the reduction of the maintenance cost and to keep the good operational condition of equipment. Objective of preventive maintenance . Preventive maintenance Also termed as “planned maintenance” or “systematic maintenance” . Due to gradual wear and tear of the parts of the machine which can be prevented by regular inspection known as preventive maintenance.Breakdown maintenance Break down of machine can occur due to the following two reasons: Due to unpredictable failure of component which cannot be prevented.
