The development of semiconductor electro-technics during last decades allowed us to produce railway vehicles with very high tractive power. High performances reveal new problems that were unknown until these days. One of these problems are torsional oscillations of running wheelsets, which may appear and compromise the safety of railway vehicles. This article analyzes dynamical events that may occur in drives of the vehicles and that are bound with transmission of the torque to the wheels during the operation of the vehicle, which is exposed to the variable external influences (adhesion conditions, track irregularities, variation of wheel forces, etc.). This is based on the idea of a model of simplified drive of the real railway vehicle, which is used for simulation purposes. The model serves for the parametric analysis of individual components, to make an effective design or control remedy.
