Abstract

Reverse engineering to ensure re-use of an existing well established railway simulator W.S. Chan, S. Shao, J. Allan London Underground Ltd. Professional Services Group, Telstar House, Eastbourne Terrace, London W2 6LG, UK INTRODUCTION Background. The Multi-Train Simulator (MTS) is capable of modelling all the major sub-systems including Power Supply, Rolling Stock and Signalling & Control Systems on rapid transit railway systems. It is important to stress that interactions between sub-systems have a significant effect on the performance of the whole system. This feature was built-in implicitly in the original design of the MTS and developed in the Traction Research Group at the University of Birmingham more than 20 years ago with an investment in excess of 30 person years [1,2]. MTS and Its Applications. The MTS has proved to be a useful and valuable tool in quantifying engineering problems in the design stage of rapid transit railway projects. It has been used both in the
