Radio communication and simulation of train dynamics for Distributed Power within long trains

This project is a step further to implement and to overcome the results of the Marathon project which has shown the feasibility of the long heavy consist created in coupling two trains with distributed traction: one locomotive (Traction Unit) at the head of the train and one other remote controlled in the middle.

A brief description

WP1

Project Management: This WP aims at ensuring strategic and technical, as well as administrative and financial, coordination of the whole project.

Lead: UNITOV
WP2

System definition to transmit traction and braking commands: This WP specifies the characteristics of the GSM-R, the train makeups, the types of wagons, the parameters variation and establishes all possible operative conditions (included degraded modes). It performs also the sensitivity analysis and a risk assessment based on the relative approach.

Lead: NEW OPERA
WP3

Simulation of in-train forces within an integrated safety analysis: This WP integrates the GSM-R radio technology in the existing Traction Unit and Distributed Power System provided by CFM partners; it also perform statistical simulations to set the suitable limits for different train makeups, in terms of hauled mass, wagons characteristics and so on. In this WP, the safety analysis on the two demonstrators identified in cooperation with CFM partners is accomplished.

Lead: UNITOV
WP4

Preliminary assessment and support for certification: This WP performs the independent safety assessment of the two demonstrators and assesses the compatibility of radio protocols.

Lead: TUV
WP5

Dissemination, exploitation of results and Roadmap for implementation: This WP disseminates and communicates the M2O project progresses, results achievements and recommendations, to generate consensus and support building on the introduction into the marketplace of longer and heavier up to 1500m trains.

Lead: NEW OPERA
