Advanced Train Control Systems by B. Ning

By B. Ning

This detailed quantity on complex educate regulate platforms (ATCS) comprises chosen papers from the hugely profitable COMPRAIL convention sequence on railways and different transit platforms. complex teach keep an eye on structures are enjoying a huge function in bettering the potency and protection of educate operation, performing as their "brains and nerves." Computer-based ATCS's make railways extra trustworthy and more secure. in most cases, those structures include 4 components: the vital keep an eye on process; the station keep watch over structures and wayside platforms; the on-board keep an eye on platforms; and the conversation community, together with cellular conversation. From the perspective of the entire lifecycle, an ATCS contains layout and improvement; re-design for a distinct line program; simulation verification and checking out; and protection evaluation of the procedure and subsystems. those options are identified to those that are accustomed to general ATCS reminiscent of ETCS, CTCS for major line railways and CBTC for transit platforms.

Station Control System (SCS) is an interlocking system which control switches, signals and routes at stations or in areas. SCS communicate with CCS, BCS and OCS. Station interlocking system is a traditional train operation control system in terms of its functions. There is no special requirement for SCS in CBTC systems. At present, most of SCS are the computer based interlocking systems in CBTC systems [2]. Block Control System (BSC) includes radio block system and wayside sensors for CBTC system along the track.

The transit methods from the present train control systems based on track circuits, transponders and other traditional means to CBTC systems are also put forward. Keywords: automation control system, rail system, computer and communication, standardization. 38 Advanced Train Control Systems 1 Introduction The CBTC (Communication Based Train Control) system has been known as the development direction of control systems for rail systems in the world. In particular, with quick development of modern mobile communication, its implementation and application become more and more easily.

However, the five parts are relatively an independent part each other as a subsystem of a CBTC. The fifth part (CNS) connects all other four parts as communication channel, including mobile communication between train and wayside systems in order to ensure real-time, reliable and safe data exchange among them. The functions of a CBTC system should be distributed to the five subsystems. The data format between every two parts should be defined. The Central Control System (CCS) is the control center of a CBTC system.
