Tram simulation model for energy balance analyses
This paper describes a mathematical model of a tramcar which allows to simulate traffic on any tram track and allows to analyze energetic balance on the electrical power link without real energetic data measurement. The described mathematical model could be a useful tool for the design of an energy recovery system for a real tram track. A short description of the tram track model in the city of Liberec is presented together with the mathematical model of the tramcar type T3.PLF that operates on mentioned track. The model simulation results are confronted with data measured during the real tram operation.
