Abstract

This work presents the application of Bond-Graph Technique to modelling and simulating the behaviour of railway transport as a tool for studying its dynamic behaviour, consumption and energy efficiency, and environmental impact. The basic aim of this study is to make a contribution to the research and innovation into new technologies that will lead to the discovery of ever more efficient environmentally-friendly transport. We begin with an introduction to the study of longitudinal train dynamics as well as a description of the most currently used railway drive systems. Bond-Graph technique enables this modelling to be done systematically taking into account all the fields of science and technology involved while bringing together all the mechanical, electrical, electromagnetic, thermal, dynamic and regulatory aspects. Once the models have been developed, the behaviour of the drive systems is simulated by reproducing actual railway operating conditions along a standard section of track. Through a detailed study of the simulation results and choosing the most significant parameters, a comparison can be made of how the different systems perform. We end with the most important conclusions from which it can be deduced which drive systems are comparatively more efficient and environmentally-friendly.
