Short summary
To investigate the effect of the gear transmission system on the dynamic responses of the metro vehicle driving system, a vertical–longitudinal dynamics, model which considers the frame-hung traction motor and gearbox, is established and is validated to be reliable by comparing the simulation results and field test results in both time domain and time–frequency domain in this paper. Compared to wheelset, the gear mesh force has a greater effect on the force state of traction motor and gearbox.
