This paper considers the braking process of a mine diesel locomotive with hydrostatic mechanical transmission (HSMT) operating according to the “input differential” scheme. Braking process modeling involves four implementation methods. Identification and systematization of basic regularities in the distribution of power flows within a closed transmission contour in the process of braking have been performed with the help of software support developed by means of MatLab/Simulink. The simulation results of braking due to the hydrostatic transmission and the braking system during the movement of a diesel locomotive in the transport and traction ranges are presented in the form of graphical correlations. The process of theoretical studies of the braking process of a diesel locomotive with HSMT operating according to the “input differential” scheme has helped determine that, in terms of deceleration at the expense of a hydrostatic drive (HSD) and braking system while preserving kinematic engine-wheels connection, it is not permitted to implement this method of braking process as it is followed by excess of the allowable value of working pressure differential within HSD up to 2.8 times.
