Abstract

This paper deals with the modeling and simulation of traction process and braking process. An underlying model based on Matlab-simulink is built which consists of a traction system model and a braking system model. The principle of modeling and logic of control designed in this paper is in order to achieve simulation of traction process and braking process. The modeling is simplified in order to reduce computational effort and perform real time simulation. A graphical user interface (GUI) based on Labview is designed, which is used to input model parameters, display operation status and simulation data. As a result of integrating the simulation of traction with braking, the modeling which can be used to simulate the real status of train provides a reference for setting subway stations and optimization of route.
