Method of Calculating Running Resistance by the Use of the Train Data Collection Device

Running resistance is one of the important factors in the design of train performance and the planning of speed profiles. Running resistance is also an important factor in the analysis of energy consumption, because it is the main source of energy consumption. This paper proposes a method for calculating running resistance under various conditions by using commercial running data obtained through a train data collection device instead of running tests. This paper describes how the proposed method was verified through running tests, and presents running resistance under various conditions calculated using the proposed method.
