Abstract

A new method of DC power supply modelling for rapid transit railway system simulation Z.Y. Shao\ W.S. Chan", J. Allan* & B. Mellitt" Iz'rm'W, ^ The University of Birmingham, UK Introduction The Multi-Train Simulator (MTS) originally developed by the University of Birmingham more than 20 years ago, with an investment in excess of 30 person years, was purchased by London Underground Limited (LUL) in 1989 [1, 2, 3]. The MTS is capable of modelling all the major electrical and mechanical subsystems on rapid transit railways including power supply, rolling stock, signalling and control systems and the interactions between these systems. Therefore, the MTS has been extensively used as a main design tool on mega engineering projects such as the Central Line modernisation project and the Jubilee Line Extension project. At the same time, a multi-stage development programme has been initiated to further develop the MTS to become an
