TPC

TPC

SYSTRA Canada’s Train Performance Calculator (TPC) program simulates the operation of a train over a specific segment of railway line to evaluate its speed, travel time, and energy consumption. The TPC operates in a spreadsheet and takes full advantage of this environment to analyze the characteristics of the train, segment by segment, over the length of any run. This approach allows the user to easily modify characteristics of the train or the track, recalculate the simulation with the new characteristics and see the results immediately. TPC produces graphical results for:

  • Instantaneous train speed and track speed limit
  • The above speed graphs superimposed with the track profile
  • Distance-time graphs
  • Instantaneous energy consumption
  • Running time by segment
