Methodology of energy management for railway systems

We concentrate on the railway research that will be the main transportation for the mobility of the smart communities. We have some partnerships with other domestic/foreign universities, research institutes and railway manufacturers and operators.

  • Theory of train driving control to reduce energy consumption
  • Theory of train scheduling to reduce energy consumption
  • Energy management for electric railway systems by using enegy storage devices
  • Design of catenary-free railway system by using enegy storage devices and contactless power transfer
  • How to cope with power supply shortage and failure
  • Optimal energy supply systems for trains in developing countries
