Abstract
Since the first railways were built, they have not ceased to increase their capacity for transport, speed and energy consumption. This paper presents a comparative study of how present-day railway drive systems perform. Special emphasis is placed on consumption and energy efficiency. By using theoretical computer simulation models, simulations are conducted of the performance of present-day railway drive systems under certain specific boundary conditions. Bond-Graph Technique has been used to design the models. This technique is widely known and accepted for its suitability and capability for modeling dynamic systems in any field of science or technology, and particularly for modeling vehicular systems. Modeling is done systematically taking account of all the mechanical, dynamic, electrical, electromagnetic and regulation phenomena involved in the operation of railway drive systems. A detailed study of the simulation results has enabled a comparative analysis to be conducted of the most significant variables. Important conclusions have been drawn from this analysis about the drive systems that have been shown to be comparatively more efficient.
