Energy efficiency and on-time performance for heavy haul trains
2011 (English)In: International Heavy Haul Association Conference, Conference Proceedings, 2011Conference paper (Refereed)
The driving advisory system CATO has been installed at iron ore trains at LKAB, Sweden. CATO uses radio communication to communicate, e.g., the operational timetable and train status between the train control center and the trains. The advisories both enable the drivers to keep the operational timetable with very high precision and reduce the energy consumption by 20-25 percent. CATO’s speed advisories are easy to follow, and can easily be adapted to be relevant for heavy haul driving under extreme conditions.
