The paper represents the results of research of electromechanical processes in an electric locomotive with an asynchronous traction drive, carried out applying a developed computer model of the electric locomotive as a controlled electro-mechanical system. Simulation results are given for the locomotive start as well as for its motion in sections with worsened cohesion conditions in the “wheel–rail” contact.
