Railway Applications - Rolling Stock - Specification and verification of energy consumption

ICS Code (Tractive stock): 45.060.10
scope:

The purpose of this document is to support rolling stock procurement, especially life cycle cost (LCC) assessment.

This document is applicable to the specification and verification of energy consumption of railway rolling stock. It establishes a criterion for the energy consumption of rolling stock to calculate the total net energy consumed, either at current collector or from the fuel tank, over a predefined service profile, to ensure that the results are directly comparable or representative of the real operation of the train. For this purpose, this document considers the energy consumed and regenerated by the rolling stock. The determination methods covered are the simulation and the measurement.

This document provides the framework that gives guidance on the generation of comparable energy performance values for trains and locomotives on a common basis and thereby supports benchmarking and improvement of the energy efficiency of rail vehicles.

This document does not cover the comparison of energy consumption with other modes of transportation, or even for comparison between diesel and electric traction, covering only the energy consumption of the railway rolling stock itself.
