Light Rail Simulation, Modelling, and Load Flow

While a traction power system engineer I organized, and compiled large amounts of data to assist with the preliminary design, and load flow analysis to simulating and modeling of system performance at a 5 minute headway for a future light rail system.

Train Motor Characteristics @ Different Voltages

Excel Based Train Simulation Mathemitical Model

To assist with my understanding of traction power design I began creating an excel based mathematical simulation tool to more accurately describe specific systems situations and tendencies.
