Quote from: fam621 on November 16, 2017, 08:46:53 PMAnd how do I do that?
Quote from: fam621 on November 16, 2017, 09:02:30 PMClass 801s are not bi-mode its electric only and actually the class 800s are already bi-mode (ish) as they can be bought from a electric depot
Quote from: jamespetts on November 16, 2017, 09:07:42 PMBut nevertheless, they are coded as diesel, and so have the performance that these units have when running on diesel power.
Quote from: fam622 on May 27, 2018, 06:09:53 PMThey have near enough the same performance as when they are running on electric power and also a new bi-mode veriant of the IET fleet is coming as well in the form of the Class 802.
Quote from: fam622 on May 29, 2018, 02:18:42 PMIf you go onto that page which was linked by ACarlotti, table 1 is where the information for the Class 800/801/802s are reguarding power and power to weight ratios.
Quote from: jamespetts on May 29, 2018, 02:48:04 PMYes, I have seen that table. That does not give tractive effort, nor does it have any information regarding the power which is in any way inconsistent with what is in the pakset, save that what is in the pakset has not been adjusted to take into account the down-rating of the diesel engines. Is what you wanted the down-rating of the diesel engines? That would create an even greater difference in the performance between the diesel and electric versions.I am afraid that I am extremely unclear on precisely what you think is wrong with the actual figures for power and tractive effort, given that you have not cited any sources that give any different figures (aside from the downrating).
Quote from: fam622 on May 29, 2018, 04:11:58 PMCan an up-rating of the engines increase acceration as a temp measure until I/we get the exact tractive effort?
Quote from: fam622 on June 03, 2018, 02:04:19 PMThe power/tractive force in game is (for the Class 800s): 700 kV/55 kN. For the Class 801s its also 700 kV but its kN is: 62 kN.
Quote from: fam622 on June 03, 2018, 03:50:24 PMWhat I think is wrong is that the Class 800s tractive effort is far slower than the Class 801s tractive effort.
Quote from: fam622 on June 03, 2018, 06:47:50 PMThe data is on the acceration rate from 0mph-125/140mph from start to stop.
Quote from: fam622 on June 04, 2018, 04:40:02 PMIf I'm honest. I dont think that I can find any information reguarding the IEP acceration rate but Ik from watching YouTube videos there acceration rate is much faster.
Quote from: jamespetts on June 04, 2018, 04:51:47 PMI cannot really calibrate a specific figure as to tractive effort from that, I am afraid.
