Abstract

The traffic and electrical analysis of a metrorail transit system may be successfully performed only by means of simulation tools; an analytical approach is in fact possible only introducing heavy simplifications due to the complexity and the mutual interaction of the phenomena, often non-linear, which determine the behaviour of the system. This is particularly true when the problems of determining a suitable schedule for the train traffic and of sizing the electrical network of an underground railway system are faced. In this paper two different simulators, that can be used to anal
