  • Published 2008
The energy consumption of electrical railways is ma inly influenced by the driving states and the propulsion efficiency charac teristics of the trains as well as by the behaviour of the traction power supply syste m. For this reason the idea was to create a plug-in simulation module for railw y power supply networks using the advantages of an existing commercial rail way operation simulator. The new developed energy simulation module called OpenP owerNet works together with the Swiss OpenTrack… CONTINUE READING
