This paper presents a lateral displacement restoring force control for the independently rotating wheelsets (IRWs) of shallow-depth subway systems. In the case of the near surface transit, which has recently been introduced, sharp curved driving performance is required for the city center service. It is possible to decrease the curve radius and to improve the performance of the straight running with the individual torque control. Therefore, the individual torque control performance of the motor is the most important point of the near surface transit. This paper deals with a lateral displacement restoring force control for sharp curved driving. The validity and usefulness of the proposed control algorithm is verified by experimental results using a small-scale bogie system.
