With the general prospect of reducing energy consumption, the ELECRAIL project aims conduct a systematic analysis of energy consumption in metropolitan railway lines, suburban and high speed, with an assessment of the energy impact and the economic performance, including development of parameterized models and simulators for the analysis of strategies to reduce consumption through efficient design of train timetables and driving times. The project aims to systematically analyze all the ways to reduce electricity consumption in electric traction railways. The different possibilities and the study of each of the actions that are deemed most relevant have been identified: Timetabling, energy storage, supply system sizing, design and use of ancillary services, etc. Parameterized simulators and models have been developed for taking the more efficient decisions in each case, depending on existing restrictions. The project boundary is the transportation of passengers, stressing the segments where there are more traffic and investments. This presentation will be presented the main findings and conclusions of the project.
