SYSTEMS PARAMETERS AND THEIR AFFECT ON AUTOMATIC TRAIN CONTROL SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT

In order for an Automatic Train Control System to function within the total complex of a rapid transit system, the ATC designer must be aware of and make adjustment and allowance for the various other elements of the system which can place restrictions on the ATC design and operation. These and other system parameters take on many shapes and forms and in many cases are not as apparent as some of the parameters. Changing any of the critical systems characteristics can have far reaching effects on the total system.
