Abstract

This paper describes the current version of the LABRADOR simulation tool that can predict the train brake system performance and support decision-making in the design and optimisation of the braking system including WSP, sanders, and the blending and control of friction and dynamic brakes. The model has been developed in MATLAB/SIMULINK and is intended to mimic the braking performance of both older and newer generations of multiple unit passenger trains. It provides a quantitative simulation tool to test different designs and support the optimisation of the brake systems for contemporary and future trains.
