Abstract: Power dimensioning and energy saving have been traditionally two main issues regarding the deployment of electric grids. Electric railways are also concerned about these issues, and simulators have been traditionally used to test such infrastructure deployments. The main goal of this paper is to present the Railway electric Power Consumption Simulator, a simulation model and tool for the railway energy provisioning problem. This simulator aims to propose electric railway infrastructure deployments, optimizing the quality of the electric flow supplied to train, as well as saving as much energy as possible. The paper describes the simulator structure, as well as the ontology used to translate railway infrastructure elements into an electric circuit. Because these two objectives are conflicting, a multi-objective optimization problem is formulated and solved. Finally, a standard railway scenario is used to illustrate the capabilities of the tool, trying to find the best electric substation placements in order to optimize such objectives. The evaluation shows how the tool can handle hundreds of simulated scenarios using Cloud Computing techniques. (More)
