Freight train model for real-time simulation

ByA. Andersson, S. Kharrazi

In an attempt to increase the freight transport capacity in Sweden, introduction of longer and heavier trains is investigated. To aid this investigation, a freight train simulator was designed and constructed. Here, the implemented freight train dynamics model is described, which includes slip control, a modular wagon model structure, and a pneumatic brake system. Further, stable real-time performance of the implemented dynamics model is discussed.
