Vauxhall, a subsidiary of General Motors Corporation (NYSE: GM), is equipping its fully electronic IntelliGrip traction control system on the Grandland X SUV.
Methods: A randomized clinical trial was done to compare pain and disability modification of cervical radiculopathy patients by using cervical traction in sitting and supine positions.
It also supports the larger government initiative of energy efficiency and electrification of railways from introducing tri-phase energy-efficient technologies in electric locomotives and electrical multiple units to technology to drive efficiency in traction and non-traction areas.
This order further strengthens ABB's position in the Indian market where the government wants to equip electric locomotives with the next generation of propulsion system, with the state-of-the-art traction converters.
Drivers gain traction when backing under trailers in soft soil or low traction conditions; realize improved maneuverability when the lift axle is raised; and, save on tolls where lift axles are not charged if raised.
The following ways are possible to solve this problem: reduction of losses in the elements of traction motors design and increase of efficiency of the cooling system.
In addition, three driver-selectable traction control modes are available via a dash-mounted switch:
The patients with idiopathic VMT, history of vitreoretinal surgery, eyes with vitreomacular adherence without signs of traction and eyes with history of other retinal vascular diseases like retinal vein occlusion were excluded from study.
Effilight can potentially reduce the total weight of a train's traction component by up to 20 percent, equivalent to the weight of around 20 passengers.
Relative researches show that [3,7,8], by reducing the resistance of the running rail, increasing the voltage level of traction power system, and shortening the distance between substations, the rail potential and stray current can be reduced.
The increasing trend in the electrification of vehicles in the automotive industry which in turn has led to the increase in demand for electric components, is one of the major driving factor for the growth of traction motors market.
