INFLUENCE OF SYSTEMS OF OPERATIONS ON RAPID RAIL ENERGY UTILIZATION

The objective of this paper is to collectively quantify and assess the potential of new rapid rail hardware and operational techniques to reduce rail energy utilization. With regard to the desire to apply these concepts to urban rail as a generic mode, it is recognized that in certain cases the impact of the application will be site dependent. However, the approach taken is one of bounding the overall energy improvements in order to assess exactly what can be expected in terms of future rapid rail energy utilization. Further, this assessment has been constrained to consider only operating energy plus those systems and operational techniques which have been proven as feasible candidates for reducing energy utilization.
