Abstract

Intelligent fault identification of rail vehicles from onboard measurements is of utmost importance to reduce the operating and maintenance cost of high-speed vehicles. Early identification of vehicle faults responsible for an unsafe situation, such as the instable running of highspeed vehicles, is very important to ensure the safety of operating rail vehicles. However, this task is challenging because of the nonlinear dynamics associated with multiple subsystems of the rail vehicle. The task becomes more challenging with only accelerations recorded in the carbody where, nevertheless, sensor maintenance is significantly lower compared to axlebox accelerometers. This paper proposes a Temporal Convolution Network (TCN)-based intelligent fault detection algorithm to detect rail vehicle faults. In this investigation, the classifiers are trained and tested with the results of numerical simulations of a high-speed vehicle (200 km/h). The TCN based fault classification algorithm identifies the rail vehicle faults with 98.7% accuracy. The proposed method contributes towards digitalization of rail vehicle maintenance through condition-based and predictive maintenance.
