Improved train simulation with speed control algorithm

This paper describes an advanced train simulation based on a classical mathematical model, which was modified to increase simulation accuracy, especially for simulating run of long trains. The simulation also includes a train speed controller and a power consumption calculation. The speed controller can also calculate an optimal speed for a desired run time between stops. These modifications enable accurate train simulation, which can be used during locomotive development or during operational changes for given trains on selected routes. To improve usability a simple graphical user interface is used. This interface allows simple addition of input data, for example new locomotive characteristics or another track.
