This paper presents the results of the investigation of the noise characteristics of the dual-voltage mainline electric locomotive. The study identified noise levels generated by the locomotive equipment that violate regulations. The analysis of points, where the noise is above regulations, indicated the primary source of the elevated noise is the operation of the traction transformer. We proposed installing a noise barrier below the locomotive body to reduce noise and bring the locomotive in compliance with the noise regulations. This solution allowed reducing the locomotive noise and ensure its compliance with regulations.
