Pulse generators (PGs) are equipped to detect the rotor frequency of induction traction motors for torque control in railway vehicle traction field. Eliminating PGs is preferable from the viewpoints of increasing the reliability of the traction system, reduction of both the initial and maintenance cost, and downsizing induction traction motors. Expecting those advantages, we have been studying the application of a sensorless control method to induction traction motor control. Prior to some reports of studies and tests to apply speed sensorless strategy to railway vehicle traction we launched ideas to apply the speed sensorless control strategy and results of the studies and tests. In this paper, we present the novel control method for railway vehicle traction and some results of theoretical study and tests.
