EMD GP38-2 Locomotive Troubleshooting Electrical


Objectives: The student will learn an insight into the physical schematics. Examine a locomotive print, its notations and abbreviations, then explore in depth the major locomotive circuits and systems. First current flow is followed through the circuits for students to see the electrical interactions which are taking place for each circuit; secondly, the simplified circuits will be referred back to the physical schematic, traced and explained. Then, the print ties all the systems together into one locomotive system giving the student a good working knowledge essential to the electrical locomotive troubleshooter.

Audience: Experienced locomotive personnel or electrical locomotive maintenance personnel, apprentices.
