METHODOLOGY AND PROGRAMMING PACKAGE FOR RAILWAY TRACTION SIMULATION

The Yugoslav Railway Union wished to have a tool which would solve quickly and precisely all problems linked with train traction. It is made up of: (1) a model designed for all the differential, algebraic and physical equations that govern phenomena; (2) a programming algorithm with its logic and optimization criteria; and (3) a data bank, containing characteristics for locomotives; wagons, routes, running constraints and traffic rostering. Output data are speeds, accelerations, timings, power, tractive strength, energy consumption, heating of electrical equipment. The man/machine relationship is easy, and does not require technical experts; the system provides a possibility for solving a wide range of operating problems.
