||*Energy efficient timetabling and train driving (Ecodriving)
*Efficiency in railways operation
*Railways power systems
||Adjustable simulation models are developed to analyse consumption reduction strategies involving the efficient design of both railway timetables and train operation. Particularly, focused on the operation of high speed lines, and specific models for metropolitan lines and commuter trains. The results of these simulation-based studies will be tested in two actual cases.
In addition, all aspects related to energy supply are analysed: electrification voltage, electrical diagrams, cogeneration, returning energy, static storage, etc.
