For each mobility system, advantages and disadvantages, in terms of transport capacity and environmental impact, are highlighted. Then the focus is pointed on the trolley-bus solution. A real case study of(More)
The study reports some energy saving evaluations in rail transit due to appropriate driving styles. Several simulations were performed on an Italian 3 kV d.c. railway line feeding high-speed and two regional trains. Different scenarios about braking phases and coasting management are reported to quantify energy saving. Evaluation of the energy recovered(More)
