In this paper a closed-loop cruise controller to minimise the running costs of the heavy-haul train is proposed. Consideration is given to velocity tracking, in-train force and fuel consumption, as well as optimisation of them. To overcome the communication constraints, a fencing concept is introduced whereby the controller is reconfigured adaptively to the… (More)
The emerging Bluetooth technology is a best-known PAN (Personal Area Networks) technology. It still has some issues left open in the current specification. Among them, the scatternet formation and routing are two major issues. In this paper, we proposed a new Bluetooth scatternet formation algorithm and its routing algorithm. Our method constructs and… (More)
In this paper the existing control methods for train control in the various areas such as energy consumption and travelling time are examined. A closed-loop cruise controller to minimise the in-train force in the couplers is proposed. Simulation results for both regulation and disturbance rejection are given.
