  • About the Edition

    Rail is potentially a very efficient form of transport, but must be convenient, reliable and cost-effective to compete with road and air transport. Optimal control can be used to find energy-efficient driving strategies for trains. This book describes the train control problem and shows how a solution was found at the University of South Australia. This research was used to develop the Metromiser system, which provides energy-efficient driving advice on suburban trains. Since then, this work has been modified to find practical driving strategies for long-haul trains. The authors describe the history of the problem, reviewing the basic mathematical analysis and relevant techniques of constrained optimisation. They outline the modelling and solution of the problem and finally explain how the fuel consumption can be minimised for a journey, showing the effect of speed limits and track gradients on the optimal driving strategy.

    Journal of Rail Transport Planning & Management aims to stimulate the quality of service for railway passengers and freight customers by improving the knowledge on effectiveness and efficiency of capacity management, timetabling, management and safety of railway covers the whole range of light rail, metro, heavy and high-speed railway systems. Training Manual on Energy Efficiency for Small and Medium Enterprises by Mr. Pawan Kumar. The Working Manual on Energy Efficiency for SMEs was developed by the APO to promote the energy efficiency concepts so that industries in the region can perform comprehensive energy audits and become more competitive. I hope that it will find wide acceptance among industry . Energy-efficient driving techniques are used by drivers who wish to reduce their fuel consumption, and thus maximize fuel use of these techniques is called "hypermiling".Simple fuel-efficiency techniques can result in reduction in fuel consumption without resorting to radical fuel-saving techniques that can be unlawful and dangerous, such as tailgating larger vehicles.
