Model of High-Speed Train Energy Consumption

  title={Model of High-Speed Train Energy Consumption},
  author={Romain Bosquet and Pierre-Olivier Vandanjon and Alex Coiret and Tristan Lorino},
In the hardening energy context, the transport sector which constitutes a large worldwide energy demand has to be improving for decrease energy demand and global warming impacts. In a controversial situation where subsists an increasing demand for long-distance and high-speed travels, high-speed trains offer many advantages, as consuming significantly less energy than road or air transports. At the project phase of new rail infrastructures, it is nowadays important to characterize accurately… CONTINUE READING
