Energy Efficient Operation of Rolling Stock in HSR

By Shri Sandeep Srivastava, Executive Director (Rolling Stock), NHSRCL     

Abstract : Efficiency of high-speed rolling stock and its efficient operation is key to sustainability of any High-Speed Rail (HSR) project. Power/seat is an indicator of energy efficiency of high-speed rolling stock from design point of view. However, energy/seat-km is actual measure of energy efficiency of any high-speed rolling stock and is also referred as HSR efficiency. This paper looks into how the operational techniques combined…
