INTRODUCTION OF ELECTRONIC INTERLOCKING

CHAPTER 1 : INTRODUCTION
1.1 Introduction of Electronic Interlocking :
The era of interlocking started with mechanical lever frames. As the size of yards & train movements increased, size of lever frames also increased. These lever frames not only increased in size occupying more space but also required intensive maintenance. With the advent of Electro-mechanical relays, these lever frames gave way to relay interlocking based installations. This development resulted in relatively faster operation, fail safety in operation and reduced size of buildings required for housing of interlocking installations. With further increase in traffic and expansion of railway network, large number of Route Relay Interlocking and Panel Interlocking installations were commissioned. Route Relay interlocking (RRI) and Panel Interlocking (PI) installations use Electromechanical relays requiring complex wiring and Inter-connections. The wiring diagrams for such installations run into hundreds of sheets. Individual relays, wiring and interconnections along with thousands of soldered joints are required to be physically examined and certified. This exercise requires traffic blocks of long durations and large manpower to manage the traffic during blocks. Even for small yard re-modeling like addition of a loop line, all the above activities are required to be redone. Therefore, the advantages of relay based interlocking installations are being nullified. With development of modern fault tolerant and fail safety techniques, electronics and particularly microprocessors have found acceptance in the area of railway Signalling world over. Railways in advanced countries of Europe, North America & Australia have gone for large scale introduction of microprocessor based Electronic Interlocking system (EI). This system occupies considerably less space, consumes less power, is more reliable and is easy to install and maintain. Also, initial commissioning & changes due to yard re-modeling can be carried out in negligible time requiring skeleton manpower for traffic management during the blocks. EI is a computer based electronic interlocking system, used for controlling points, signals, level crossing gates etc, through a centralized control panel or through VDU, like existing relay based/ mechanical interlocking systems. (Microprocessor or Micro controllers are used in EIs.) . Based on a proposal for development of Electronic Interlocking System, submitted by IIT Delhi to DOE, a project was started at IIT Delhi in July 1983. Two Officers from Railways were posted on this project to IlT, Delhi. Two industries (M/s DCM & CGL) were also associated in development and fabrication of the prototype. A design of the system was evolved in March 1985. The design was evaluated through software simulation at IIT Delhi and a prototype based on this design was fabricated in 1987. RDSO and DOE funded the project for design, development and prototype fabrication jointly. The prototype was installed at Brar Square Station of Northern Railway for field evaluation. Based on field trial results, it was decided by Railway Board to manufacture four engineering models incorporating necessary improvements. Railways and DOE funded these jointly on 50:50 basis. Thereafter, design and fabrication of SSI Mark-II system was taken up by RDSO in association with lIT, Delhi. Brief history of EI s in Indian Railways is follows. (a) First EI (Microlok I ) is installed at Srirangam (SR) in 1987. (b) First indigenous EI Installed at Brar Square (NR) (Parallel operation)-1987-88 (c) First indigenous EI Installed at Dushkheda (CR) Stand alone October, 1995 DCM. (d) Second indigenous EI Installed at Bhadli (CR) Stand alone March, 1997 CGL. (e) Third indigenous EI Installed at Uppugunduru (SCR) Stand alone Warm standby - April, 1998 - RPIL. More than 350 EI have been installed in Indian Railways so far of various makes and 75 more in various stages as on 2009-10.

INTRODUCTION

1.2 Advantages of Electronic Interlocking System:


(a) System can be tested at factory level using simulation panels. (b) Non-Interlocking period is less (Typically few hours instead of few days.) both for initial installation and also for yard alterations (which can be done using application software compiler which is user friendly.) (c) Modular in design and easy for maintenance, thus requiring less staff . Expertise of hardware and software is not much needed for maintaining the equipment at initial stage. (d) Requires less number of relays - vital EI replaces interlocking circuits Thus less space required for signal equipment room (Relay rooms). (e) Less power supply as compared with existing PI/ RRIs. Less failures, less wiring, less soldering, less complexity in the circuit. (f) Enables usage of OFC (with Object Controller) which reduces requirement of Copper cables , their cost & maintenance. (g) Remote operation of signals, points, and level crossings controls is feasible. Thus Compatible with centralized traffic Control. (h) All EIs are designed and manufactured as per the international safety committees such as CENELEC STANDARDS (European countries). (i) (j) Standard of safety and reliability is higher as compared with existing relay interlocking systems (PI/RRI). Datalogger / Event logger is an integral part of EI.

(k) Self-diagnostic in feature: i.e. error code/ alarm code messages will be displayed on display cards or on the front panel of printed circuit boards. Hence easy for rectification of failures and reduces the failure duration.

Policy on type of Interlocking to be adopted :


Board has decided the following policy to be adopted on IR vide Boards letter Nos. 2003/Sig/G/5 dt. 10-09-2003 and 2003/Sig/G/5/Pt. Dated 30th January, 2006 Up to 50 routes Relay based interlocking of Metal to Carbon or Metal to Metal type according to the expertise available on the railway. (In special cases, EI may also be adopted in installations below 50 routes on a case to case basis. Such proposals for EI at signalling installations below 50 routes have to be justified on a case to case basis based on life cycle cost including capital cost, annual maintenance cost, depreciation provision, saving due to avoidance of repeated relay wiring due to anticipated yard remodeling etc. and concurrence of the associate finance obtained.) 50 to 200 routes Above 200 routes Electronic interlocking. RRI with relay based interlocking of Metal to Carbon or Metal to Metal type according to the expertise available on the railway. ( Note : Bd has directed RDSO to finalise new Specification for EI for above 200 routes also vide Lr No .2008/SIG/SGF/4 /EI /GEN dt 29/07/09) Note :- The above policy will be applicable to all new works and such of those sanctioned works where detailed estimates are not yet sanctioned.

1.5 TYPICAL HARDWARE USED IN EI


1.5.1 Any computer-aided systems require the study of both hardware and software of the system. Study of hardware involves the study of components; printed circuit boards (PCBs) provided in the computer aided Signalling system. Software (Program) is a set of instructions given to a microprocessor (computer). A brief description of common hardware features for different Electronic Interlocking Systems are discussed as follows. 1.5.2 Common Features of Hardware: (a) Electronic Interlocking System is a microprocessor based electronic device with fail-safe information processing used in place of conventional relay interlocking systems.

Fig.No.1.1 (a) Input Cards : All the field conditions (i.e. Field relay contacts) are connected to these input cards of EI system. The maximum inputs capacity of each RI card will depend on design of the RI cards by different manufacturers. The total number of inputs will depend on the yard layout. Total inputs means: (i) Field inputs (ii) Panel inputs : : ECRs, TPRs, NWKR etc. GNs , UNs, NWNs, RWNs, etc. HR, DR, WNR, WRR etc

(iii) Read back inputs :

Opto couplers are provided to isolate field optically from the system in Input cards. These cards will read the conditions of inputs and passes the information to EI system.

COMMON FEATURES OF HARDWARE

(b) Processor card: This card is also called as central processing unit card of the System. This is provided with microprocessor, RAM, ROM, EPROM, EEPROM Memory ICs. These EEPROMS or EPROMs (ROMs) are programmed with software required for executing the system commands. System software consists of the following: Executive software programmed in system EPROMs Application software programmed in DATA EPROMs. Application Software.

Executive Software

This software is common to all EIs for the This software is specific to each station. same company manufacturing. Different for different stations. Factory installed software Performs all operations This is as per table of control of specific station Can be installed at site by signal engineers.

Cuts off vital supply voltage to output Logic installed through Boolean expressions relays, in case of unsafe failures. or user-friendly equations. In all EI installations, DATA EPROMs are to be replaced with new DATA EPROMs at the time of yard alteration works. i.e. yard data as per new table of control software is to be programmed in the EPROMs For doing yard alterations as per the new table of control (interlocking) EI compiler software is used. Some manufacturers are providing EEPROMs, in which program can be erased electrically and reprogrammed with new software as per new changes using a debug port. Function of CPU Card : This card will execute the commands given by the user (station master/panel operator). Whenever the panel operator operates the push buttons, the relevant push buttons will be operated. Processor card will sense the operation of the panel operation of the panel operator (through inputs cards) and process according to the program available in EPROMS and finally gives output if the conditions are favorable (i.e., field condition relays are favorable as per principle of interlocking). The output voltage generated by the CPU card will be connected to Relay output cards. Before sending the output-to-output relays safety checks will be done internally. Output card (Relay Drive Card): This card receives the output of CPU card as input and picks up relevant output relay as per the panel operators request. The output of this card is terminated on phoenix terminals from there the output relays are connected.

INTRODUCTION

1.5.3

Basic Principle of Hardware design :

The Basic principle of design is shown in Fig.No.1.2. Input/output cards, and CPU card with RAM and ROM are inter connected.

Fig No: 1.2 System Bus for information (data) exchange. Input cards gives information of all inputs to system Bus. CPU card will read the status of inputs and output cards are connected to output relays for operating the circuits (i.e., signal lamp circuit, point operation circuit, CH slot circuit etc). CPU will execute the panel commands as per the program stored in the memory chips. During execution of commands it reads the status of all inputs and writes on the RAM. After processing the interlocking logic the output is written in RAM and then according to a fixed program, these are written to the output registers of the output cards through which output relays are actuated. 1.5.4 Safety and Reliability of Hardware :

Prime objective of EI design for Railway Signalling shall be, to obtain fail safe features similar to that obtainable in relay interlocking systems which are already existing. Microprocessor based equipment cannot be designed to work on fail safe principle at all times. Therefore, reliability has a much more importance role to play which is achieved by redundancy. Fail-safe EI system can be obtained only when it is made possible to detect any fault in the system instantly on occurrence to apply remedial measures. The output of the system should be cut off whenever the system detects any unsafe condition. So, all the EIs should have self-diagnostic features so as to achieve fail to safety condition. To ensure safety and reliability there are three approaches to the hardware (redundancy) design of EIs globally. (a) Single processor system with extensive safety checks. (b) System with redundancy (two out of two) failsafe (c) System with redundancy (two out of three) failsafe and failure tolerance.

TESTING AND VALIDATION

Testing and validation of a microprocessor based safety system is carried out in four stages as described below: Stage-1 Theoretical design of the hardware and program structure of the software are examined for reliability and fail-safety at the initial design level. Stage-2 Each card or the circuit module of the hardware is tested under normal as well as fault conditions. In the case of software, each routine is tested with diverse test data. Stage-3 Overall system, after integration of hardware and software is tested under different input data conditions. Testing at this stage can be carried out by simulation for accelerated testing using computers. Stage-4 Exhaustive field trials of the equipment is conducted under the field conditions.

1.7

REQUIREMENTS FOR ORDERING OF ELECTRONIC INTERLOCKING SYSTEM

While ordering EI, purchaser is required to furnish the following documents to the supplier: (a) Approved Interlocking Plan (b) Approved Panel / Front Plate Diagram (c) Selection table. After installation at the station, functional testing shall be done by the purchaser as per the Selection table.

1.8 CRITERIA FOR THE SELECTION OF EI SYSTEM


The main criterion for the selection of EI System is its reliability, availability, maintainability & safety apart from meeting full functional requirements. The main features are: (a) System should meet functional requirements and have future expandability. (b) Meet the requirements of environmental conditions, electromagnetic interference, etc. (c) System should be user friendly and economical (example object controller for yards). (d) System architecture should be such as to give very high overall availability while ensuring high degree of safety. (e) System validation to international standards to meet safety integrity level 4 (defined in CENELEC Standards). To meet above main requirements, various architectures have been suggested in Para 7.1 of the specification No. RDSO/SPN/192-2005.

VARIOUS DESIGN ASPECTS OF SYSTEM

1.8.2 Various Design aspects of the System to achieve viability & safety: Design of electronic Railway Signalling Equipment based on processor and/or software has to ensure that safety integrity of whole system/sub-system is maintained through out the life of the equipment. Safety integrity is specified as one of 4 discrete levels by IEC/CENELEC Standards. Level-4 has highest level of safety integrity. For Safety Integrity Level - 4, dangerous failure rate per hour for continuous mode of operation should be less than 10-10. Safety integrity of any system covers mainly two components: (a) Systematic failure integrity. (b) Random failure integrity. It is necessary to specify both the Systematic & Random failure integrity requirements of the system if adequate safety is required to be achieved. 1.9 European Committee for Electro technical Standardization (CENELEC) has come up with several Standards, out of which, the following are to be considered for any Electronic component based Railway Signalling equipment. EN 50121 EN 50126 EN 50128 --- Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC). --- Railway applications - The Specification & Demonstration of Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety (RAMS). --- Railway applications - Software for Railway Control and Protection Systems. --Railway applications - Safety Related Electronic Systems for Signalling.

EN 50129

Besides these Standards if Communication Line is used in Railway Signalling as in the case of Block Signalling or Axle Counter, another Standard. EN 50159 --- Signalling and Communications Safety-related Communication -- is also to be considered. EN50126 for RAMS fail-safe systems like EI, ATP, AFTC are verified and validated to SIL- 4 standard of EN50129 and EN50128.

Non-vital Section:

It consists button relay logics and indication logics. The relays such as GNR, UNR and indications such as RGKE, HGKE, WLKE etc. are defined in Non-vital I/O board definition section. Rest of the relays GNCR, UNCR are defined in NV Boolean bit definition section. These logics are written as NV ASSIGN statement.

2.21

Vital Section

It consists complete interlocking logic except button relay and indication logics. The names of Vital relays such as HR, DR, RECR, HECR, TPR etc. are defined in Vital I/O board definition section and rest of the relays such as ASR, UCR, TLSR etc. are defined in Vital Boolean bit definition section. These logics are written as ASSIGN statement.

Compilation of Application Program

Program shall be stored as PROGRAM.ML2 file name. Compilation is carried out with help of Microlok II Compiler. Result of compilation will be two files viz. PROGRAM.MLL & PROGRAM.MLP. MLL file is a listing file, which gives any errors, warnings, no. of BITs used, no. of time one bit used and so many other important information. This also gives unique identification numbers called as CHECKSUM & CRC. MLP file is a data file, which is loaded in memory of CPU of MLK II using MLK II Maintenance tool.

2.27

Concept of Hot Standby

Any Signal Interlocking System needs to be uninterrupted as it deals with safety. Train detentions shall be minimal. MLK II being an Electronic System, it is mandatory to duplicate entire system. All the Vital and Non-vital boards, CPU, Power Supply PCB, VCOR are in duplicate. Duplicated MLKII systems are identified as SYSTEM-A and SYSTEM-B. When one system fails due to any reason, it is ensured the other system is available to take care of Station Interlocking.

2.28

Evolvement of Hot Standby Logic

Both systems shall work all the time. Inputs are read by both the systems independently and compared continuously. Processing application logic simultaneously and comparison at various stages. Parallel delivery of Output by both the systems after comparison. Any mismatch in the STATUS of bits between the system will KILL the system ensuring other unaffected. 2.28.1 Design Concept: a) Vital Output:

Vital output will be delivered only when status of the BIT is same in the both the systems. Both the systems outputs are connected in parallel to one interface relay through a DIODE to avoid back feeding. Once output is delivered, any change is STATUS of other system will not affect status of delivered bit. In case of MISMATCH no outputs will be delivered by either system. MISMATCH indication will appear on Control panel and VDU. b) Vital Input: System-A read Input as HIGH and that in B as LOW. Input LOW is most restrictive state, it is considered to be valid. MISMATCH is generated in the system which has Input in HIGH state and System-A will be KILLED. c) Non-vital Output: Outputs are not compared before delivery as it is difficult to compare status of Flashing Output. Output is delivered only by one system. When system which is delivering Non-vital Outputs is KILLED, the control will be shifted to other system. Interruption of visual indications on control panel for few seconds. d) Non-vital Input: The inputs are compared for its STATUS in both systems. Mismatch will be generated in as system that has not read Input and it will be KILLED. Concept of Vital Output, Vital Input and Non-vital Output is same as above. Nonvital Input is ANDed with its corresponding bit from other system. Further process is negated in the system, which has not read the Input, MISMATCH is generated and system will be KILLED. When one system is KILLED, it needs human intervention to restore back ONLINE. System need to be RESET manually. When RESET, it will not update itself from already ONLINE system.

IRISET

Page 36

CONCEPT OF HOT STANDBY

2.28.2 Disadvantages: Momentary button inputs cause Disabling/Shutting down of one system or some time both the systems. Remedy: Intermediate bits are compared to generate MISMATCH. This intermediate bit is nothing but next level steady bit(which has its own holding path). Incase of MISMATCH indication will appear on control panel and VDU and further process in the both the systems will be negated. Killing incidences are then reduced and system is made STABLE. In stations both the systems are working on actual Hot Standby logic is most satisfactorily and stable.

2.29

Warm Standby Logic:

Hot Standby Logic working in some stations, though having stable design, due to climatic instability / lightening caused failure of cards and both the systems were shut down which has interrupted train movements. In these stations warm standby logic is introduced i.e. external change over circuit is developed to switch on second system, when first has failed due to some reasons. Both the systems cards are kept inserted in slots and in ready condition to switch ON when intended. MLKII power supply is controlled by External Changes Over circuits, which proves back contact of VCOR relays. Only one system is ONLINE and other is power OFF. This is a Worm Standby Logic and working satisfactorily in stations. The main advantage of this warm standby logic is to maintain only one Application Program and its testing is easy and time saving. The disadvantage is the system which is Powered OFF, integrity of the cards and whole system cannot be ascertained unless Powered ON next time. Traffic interruption for 3 to 5 Minutes.

TESTING

2.36 Testing:
Testing of Microlok II electronic interlocking system is carried out in two phases. 1. System testing at factory premises called as Factory Acceptance Test. 2. System testing at site called as Site Acceptance Test. 2.36.1 Factory Acceptance Test Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) for Microlok-II EI system shall be tested in Factory environment with simulation setup to validate application software. The purpose of Factory Acceptance Test is to: o Ensure that the Microlok II Interlocking system fulfils the station Interlocking & Rout Control Chart requirements and working in safe manner even if any false inputs / information received. Minimises the site errors & risks and reduces the corrections at site. This results in saving of time at site testing.

FAT is carried out through simulation set up (using Simulator Panel with toggle switches or Simulator PC with Microlok Interlocking Simulation Setup - MISS software) in which all field inputs are simulated. FAT is carried out for each station interlocking separately. After designing the Application Software, designer issues it to the validation department for carrying the Factory Acceptance Test. It is carried out only through VDU panel, whereas Site Acceptance Test (SAT) is carried out through CCIP and VDU panels, if both the options are available at site. Application logic is modified for the FAT testing for Timer values used for signal, point, overlap and cancellation are reduced from 120 secs to12 secs to speed up the testing. It is essential that the original times are reinstated and validated at the completion of testing. In FAT setup, the I/O boards are not physically present and the same is simulated using the test setup (MISS). Therefore, field inputs and outputs delivered by Input and Output card will be disabled and will be directly delivered into simulation VDU. However this will not affect the interlocking part of the application logic. To carry out FAT, the following inputs are required: Signal Interlocking Plan (SIP) Route Control Chart (RCC) Control cum Indication Panel Diagram Cross Table Microlok II Station Interlocking Application Software files as designed (.ML2, .MLL, .MLP) Microlok II Station Interlocking Application Software files as tested (.ML2, .MLL, .MLP) Ansaldo STS Total Management System (TMS) Forms FAT Certificate

After carrying out FAT, the following are the outputs:

For detailed testing procedure of FAT please Ref: Annexure If Railways/Customer testing is completed, then the Checksum and CRC values of the FAT simulated application logic will be recorded as per the Application Logic and it is to be jointly signed by Ansaldo STS and Railways representative.

2.36.2 Site Acceptance Test Site Acceptance Test (SAT) defines the procedure for Site testing of Microlok II Station Interlocking System, where tests are executed at site environment. SAT mainly involves the System integrity and functional testing of all equipments and interlocking testing also shall be carried out with full setup except the trackside equipments. SAT is carried out for each station separately. Results of the tests are observed and documented in a Test Report. The Site Acceptance Test ensures that all the equipments installed at site i.e. Microlok II, Communication equipments, Power supply equipments, Relays and Control cum Indication Panel are functioning correctly as per approved system configuration & station interlocking requirements and working in safe manner and failsafe even if any equipment fails / false inputs/information received. SAT ensures the overall system safety and error free system is being delivered to the client. To carry out SAT, the following inputs are required: Microlok II .ml2, .mll & .mlp file (Hardcopy & Read-only Softcopy) Station SIP Station Route control chart Station Control cum indication panel diagram Cross tables Wiring circuits All the equipments involved for station working is being installed before proceeding SAT, so there is no need of separate set up is required except to simulate the field inputs with Simulation panel. All the field inputs are simulated by using simulation panel through toggle switches and inputs are sending to Microlok II via relays and the field outputs are sending to lamps through relays. Visual test Wire count test Bell test Insulation resistance test Earthing test Power On VCOR Communication testing Correspondence Test System Integrity Test Interlocking testing Change over test

The following testing shall be carried out while doing SAT

PROBLEMS REPORTED IN MICROLOK II


It has been noticed that data in internal data logger of EI is stored in raw form which is difficult to interpret. It necessitates the requirement of external data logger for maintenance friendly interpretation. In absence of external data logger, the propose of provision of internal data logger or data storage is defeated due to unsuitable maintenance diagnostic software loaded in Maintenance Tool. In view of above, maintenance diagnostic software loaded in Maintenance Tool needs to be improved. In connection with this problem M/s Ansaldo STS has already developed user friendly software and same shall be installed in all future installations of Microlok-II. The checksum at the time of FAT varies from the checksum at the SAT due to hard wired testing not done at FAT. To avoid the duplication of testing, there is need of modification in testing procedures / devising of suitable arrangement including software changes so that there is no change in checksums. The possible solution is the checksum at the time of FAT matches with checksum at the site is creating the similar conditions as exists in the field. i.e. testing with fully hardwired test zig and keeping all timers at their standard value. Even alter that to keep the checksums same there should not be any last minute changes in interlocking logic by the railways.

FACTORY AND SITE ACCEPTANCE TEST OF MLK II

11. Procedure
Before proceeding to upload the .mlp file, the .mll shall be verified by the tester to ensure the exceeds of bit usages, Timer section, Compiler version etc.

Power ON Test:
Power ON Test includes extending power to Microlok II card files 12Volts and 24 Volts DC from rectifiers and 230Volts AC mains to the VDU computer. Check the voltages given to the Microlok cardfiles are within ranges.

VCOR test:
After power is extended, upload the application data to the Microlok-II units and Check whether VCORs of Microlok II units are energized. After energizing VCORs it indicates that the Microlok units are healthy and the programs loaded are error free.

Communication test:
Both Microlok and VCOR is picked up, this will automatically enable the communication between Microlok Units. When the VDU software is run, this will automatically enable communication between VDU and Microlok, and indications at the VDU will be dynamically updated based on the status received from Microlok. Check the communication status in LEDs and alpha-numeric display at Microlok show the communication status and check the indication status in VDU.

Correspondence Test:
The Tester shall correspond all controls and indications between the VDU and the Microlok II. A list of all controls and indications that are to be tested is available in the serial section definition of the Microlok II communication link. Refer relevant Microlok II Application data for this serial section definition. System Integrity Test System Integrity test is to prepare the simulator to the station specific needs before starting Interlocking tests. To initialize the station interlocking, field inputs (Tracks status - Unoccupied, Points status - Normal and Signal status Red or ON) from simulation panel/PC are kept in favorable position Check whether indications in VDU are in correspondence with the field simulations Toggle all track circuits from Simulation panel/PC one after another and check VDU display changes correspondingly. Operate Points from VDU and change the field status from simulator panel/PC and check the VDU display changes accordingly Toggle Signal lamp (Red) switches and check VDU indication flashes

Principles Testing:
To ensure that the Application Logic is functioning in accordance with the clients signalling principles a principles test is carried out. This test ensures that all locking requirements are met, signals clear to the correct aspect, all the controls required to clear the aspect are set to the required positions and the design is in accordance with the clients signalling principles. An Assistant Tester shall record the individual tests on the control tables and test sheets.

Control Table Validation:


As the Principles Tester carrying out testing to the source documents [SIPs Signalling Plans and Route Table(s)], a second tester shall be checking the tested functions (as witnessed from the testing) against the control tables.

Page 87

(S18) ELECTRONIC INTERLOCKING

ANNEXURE -VI

FRVD (Free Running Variable Display) is a facility available in Microlok Maintenance tool which shall be utilised to monitor the status of bits defined in Application Data. SET means value=1 and CLEAR means value=0 in Boolean equations. While doing specific control table test, by means of FRVD it has to ensure all the relevant bits applicable to test shall be Set or Clear and other irrelevant bits to check as well whether is updated for the test.

Vital Timers:
In order to minimise testing time, if required, the application logic timer variable setting will be reduced for nominated variables (as nominated by the Principles Tester). A List of timers altered for test purposes is recorded on test certificate Timers Altered for Testing Log. NOTE: It is essential that the original times are reinstated and validated at the completion of testing.

Route Setting, Locking Test:


Aim: To check: The route gets set and locked if the favourable conditions are met. The Signal goes to OFF aspect after route is set and locked Procedure: Set the FRVD for LR, UCR, ASR and HR bits of the required route. TEST 1: Check the ASR bit is SET. Initiate route set from VDU. The LR, UCR bit shall SET. This shall be followed by ASR bit in CLEAR and HR bit in SET. Test for the following conditions while route is set and locked: o TEST 2: Route shall remain set and locked even if approach lock tracks are occupied. o TEST 3: Route shall remain set and locked but signal is put back to danger if back lock track or overlap track is failed. The signal shall restore when tracks failure resolves except Replacement track. o TEST 4: Route shall remain set and locked but signal is put back to danger in case point detection is lost. The signal shall restore when point detection is restored. o TEST 5: The signal is put back to danger in case Level crossing, crank handle or siding lock detection is lost. When locking of crank handle or keysiding is restored, the route must be released with the elapse of timer. o TEST 6: Route shall remain set & locked and signal shall remain OFF, if points & tracks are operated for other routes. o TEST 7: Under Route set and locked condition, the conflicting routes shall not be available or cannot be set. Also Test for the routes (which are not conflicting but are available), the routes shall get set & locked independently and simultaneous train movement on these routes does not affect the route under test. This test is performed as per Cross table.

Before proceeding the below tests, Tester needs to check all the activities as mentioned in Pre-commissioning checklist. Visual Test The visual test is to ensure the quality of workmanship carried by the construction team and to confirm everything followed as per the requirement of customer and as indicated in the design drawing. Any changes required to be informed to Site Manager & Project Manager to take necessary corrective action prior to starting of testing. On doing the visual check the construction checklist is updated to ensure all installation done properly. Wire Count Test This is to ensure the number of wires used in each relay contact and terminals is as per testing copy issued by Design. Any mismatch found in this is to be logged and informed to Site Manager & Project Manager and corrective action to be taken prior to starting of bell test. Bell Test This is to ensure the continuity in each wire used and the wiring is made as per the testing copy issued by Design. Any mismatch found in this is to be logged and informed to Site Manager & Project Manager and corrective action to be taken prior to starting of simulation test. Insulation Resistance Test This is to ensure the safety to the persons involved in testing to confirm that there is no contact between any of the power circuit with body of the any metallic equipment such as racks, etc. Any low insulation resistance found in this is to be logged and informed to Site Manager & Project Manager to take necessary corrective action prior to starting of System integrity & Simulation Test. EARTHING TEST The first step in providing effective personnel and equipment protection is preparing a low resistance grounding electrode or grounding electrode system at each equipment housing room. Once the low resistance earth ground is established for a signal housing the apparatus in the house should be connected to the earth ground as described in Grounding and surge protection and EM Compatibility requirements for Microlok II based Interlocking systems Measurement of earth resistance is conducted in presence of customer. If earth resistance is found above 5 Ohms, this is to be logged and informed to Site Manager & Project Manager to take necessary corrective action prior to starting of Power On Test. Power ON Before extending power to the equipments, it needs to ensure all the output voltages from IPS is set at correct voltage as mentioned in the power supply equipments/design and also ensures that Battery is connected & charged fully. After that Power On test shall be conducted, it includes extending power to all input terminals installed at site and ensures the correct voltages are measured at input & at end terminals as per wiring design before connecting to the equipments.

As per SIL4 safety requirement every input reading has to be done by sensing two contacts, generally one front and one back of the same relay input that has to be sensed. Hence 8 digital input contacts can sense 4 numbers of inputs in a failsafe manner. The general practice is to sense the front contact through Vs1and back contact through Vs2. The address switch is a ten-position dipswitch that has to be set in the required position, so that the processor is able to identify the correct Input card. The processor logic contained in the Input card multiplexes the input information and sends it to the main processor through "Back Plane Bus". The module also has "SF" (System Fault) to indicate group fault. A high input is indicated through a green LED Display on the module. Galvanic separation is provided through optical isolation of signals between "Processor logic" and "Back Plane Bus Interface". The technical specs are as below: (i) Suitable for 8 digital inputs equivalent to 4 nos. of SIL4 inputs. (ii) Rated input voltage 24 V DC. (iii) Two sensors for each of the four inputs 1 Vsf & 2 Vsf (Vsf : Voltage supply fault). (iv)Group fault display SF (System Fault). (v) Status display for each input. Input delay 3 Milli seconds. (vi)Internal optic isolation in data link. (vii) Hot swapping of module. (viii) Low power consumption of 4 W. (ix)Length of unshielded cable connection 200 m. (x) Normal voltage 24 VDC. Range 20.4 V to 28.8 V. (xi) Sensing range: 1 = 15V to 30 V & 0 = 30V to + 5V. (xii) HW Coding. (xiii) SW (dipswitch) coding. (b) Digital output Module (Vital) : Four relays can be driven by one module. The outputs are grouped as 2 outputs on the left side and two on the right side. The address switch is a ten-position dipswitch that has to be set in the required position, so that the processor is able to identify the correct Output card. Galvanic separation is provided through optical isolation of signals between "Processor logic" and "Back Plane Bus Interface". The module also has "SF" (System Fault) to indicate group fault.

Annexure VIII ESA11- IR Electronic Interlocking System Manufactured by AZD Praha BZA-BPQ section in S.C.Rly
1 Introduction:

The Electronic Interlocking System model ESA11-IR is a well designed, documented proven and tested product, fully meeting the CENELEC standards for highest Safety integrity level SIL-4 and is currently operational in the High speed Euro corridor (ESA11), with passenger carrying trains, on the Czech Railway having train speeds of 160 KMPH. The ESA11 product has been designed developed and patented (patent no: 282967) by M/S AZD praha of Czech Republic. In association with M/s Hytronics Enterprises, the ESA11 electronic interlocking system has been developed to suit Indian Railway signalling rules i.e. ESA11-IR. This system has been validated by an independent third party as conforming to CENELEC specs and meeting SIL4 norm requirements. 2 Salient Features of ESA11-IR are: Designed as 2 out of 2 architecture, with 100% hot standby at vital processor level. Designed with two independent softwares. In other words elimination of common mode failures. Health of the computers are monitored by intrinsically fail safe hardware comparator modules- which initiate power cut off to vital computers, in case of nonagreement with 2 out of 2 result. In such a case all vital outputs (signals) will be driven to safe state. Any failure of working pair CPUs will result in smooth change over to hot standby pair of CPUs without disturbing train traffic i.e. the routes which were already set and functioning are preserved. Uses 2 out of 2 architecture, for field I/O modules, called Executive Computers. Uses two independent softwares in the field modules. In other words elimination of common mode failures. Power cut off feature for field modules, in case of non-agreement with 2 out of 2 result. In such case all vital outputs (signals) will be driven to safe state. ESA11-IR can be controlled by a VDU panel or conventional DOMINO type operation cum indication panel. Control from an VDU panel is more advantageous to the user, than control from the domino panel, as the VDU can display more relevant, dynamic and additional information. Application software can be easily developed by the use graphic based menu driven software tool. The hardware is modular in design and can be easily expanded as and when needs arise to change the yard layouts. Yard remodeling is very easy as field modules can be added or removed as per needs and similarly software can be reprogrammed by the use of graphic user interface and menu driven software interlocking. Simulation of complete interlocking of a yard is possible before installing the software in the field. Use of BRS relays for field interface between Electronic Interlocking equipment & out door signaling Gears.

Vital computer pairs ZPC...SM terminal (VDU panel) COMMANDING LEVEL: (Operator cum Indication panel) Conventionally Indian Railways uses a Domino type Operation cum Indication panel, which is located in the SM (station master) room, for controlling the train movements in the station yard. ESA11-IR equipment has got provision to interface with VDU based Control cum Indication Panel or/ and conventional Domino type operating cum indication panel.

IRISET

Page 124

ESA11- IR ELECTRONIC INTERLOCKING SYSTEM

But keeping in view of the modern technology, the advantages of controlling the train movements in the stations yard through VDU based operating cum indication panel far outweigh that of controlling the train movements in the station yard through Domino type operating cum indication panel. Some of the advantages available are (when VDU based operating cum indication panel is used for the ESA11-IR system): Alterations: No need for physical alteration and re-wiring to the Operating cum Indication panel when Yard layouts are modified or changed due to operational requirements. All alterations are done in software. It is easy to carry out alterations in a working panel. All needed alterations are done off line and the modified yard layout SW is loaded in less than 5 minutes. Occupation of Space: VDU panel occupies less space. Electro-mechanical Counters/buttons/keys etc: No need for provision of any buttons, keys or electro-mechanical counters for logging certain station master operations, as such information is logged automatically in the built-in data logger. (In a Domino Panel, a simple button stuck situation brings the complete panel operations to a standstill). Yard display colours: In a traditional Domino Panel, before any route is selected the track indications are blank on the panel. And when the route is selected the track indications show white (yellow in case of LEDs). And when the train is in the section or track is occupied the track indications turn to red colour. And when the route release takes place, after the train movement is completed the track indications become blank once more. In VDU based panel operation, the station master has the advantage of seeing the unoccupied & unselected tracks in Grey colour & as soon as the Route is selected, the track indications turn to green colour & when the train has entered the section the track indications go to red colour & when the route release takes place after completion of the train movement, the track indication return back to Grey colour. Much more & intelligent information can be made available to the operator on theVDU panel. For Example: Train Routes on VDU are shown in green Colour & the SHUNT Routes are shown in white colour. Calling ON routes are shown in Yellow colour. SM Key: In conventional Domino panel only one SMs key is provided but in VDU panel each operator or SM can have his own smart card & separate data log will be maintained about each operators actions. Advantages of a VDU panel (when compared to Domino Panel) The VDU panel is more reliable as there is no necessity to change the fused bulbs etc. Less power consumption More aesthetic & elegant Additional facilities on VDU panel (for ESA11-IR systems): Provision of Additional information on the VDU panel is possible for better convenience to the operator/station master, which is not possible on the DOMINO type panel. Train Numbering: Train numbers can be assigned to the incoming or outgoing trains & the operator can follow the movement of the trains by train numbers which move along with the movement of the train indication on the Panel.

ANNEXURE -VIII

Warning labels: Warning label/s can be established on any track circuit. Whenever the on duty SM tries to set a route, the warning label/s will appear, which the on duty SM has to acknowledge, for enabling the route setting operation to continue. Traffic Closure labels: Similarly traffic closure label/s can be set on any track circuit (for example rail crack). Whenever the on duty SM tries to set a route, the traffic closure label/s will appear, which the on duty SM has to acknowledge, and then the system will display a risk page which the on duty SM must acknowledge by a digital signature, for enabling the route setting operation to continue. Clamping of points: A software lock can be established on any point machine, which prohibits the operation of that point. Whenever TSL (Temporary Single Line) mode of working is adopted, the SM can establish a software lock on the points required to dispatch a train, which greatly reduces the time required to dispatch a train under TSL working mode. Auto signal working: At the click of a mouse each signal can be converted into an auto signal i.e. the whole yard can be converted into an auto territory. Pre-setting of routes: There is provision to pre-set train routes and as soon as the previous train route is completed the computer fetches the preset route and establishes the route and so on till all the preset routes are exhausted. Absence of AT supply indication: Whenever AT traction AT supply fails, the tracks which do not have the traction AT supply, are indicated (enveloped) in dark blue colour, drawing the attention of SM immediately. Macro Setting: For large yards where complex route setting is possible (from A to D via B & C routes), the SM (each) can set his own macro, to quickly establish the route by two clicks, instead of the normal 4 clicks. Domino type Operation cum Indication Panel: Information about Domino type operation cum indication panel is not being presented here as railways are very familiar with this type of equipment- except that it conforms to IRS/S/36 specification. VDU Based Operation cum Indication Panel: The ESA11-IR electronic Interlocking equipment is controlled through two or more VDUs. One VDU is used for displaying the yard layout, and the second VDU is used for displaying Text based information. Bigger Yards may require more than One VDU for displaying the complete Yard.

IRISET

Note: Above is a example of a typical Control panel with 2 VDUs for geographic display cum control purposes. Normally one Colour VDU is used for Graphic Display & one Monochrome VDU is used for Text Based information Display.

A typical yard display in graphic form for Display & control through GUI based graphic symbols

Typical PRV- Executive Computers

The VDU based control panel is controlled by a computer terminal called ZPC. The VDU panel allows the traditional control of the movement of trains in the station yard and realises the interlocking functions. Normally for a way side station ONE VDU is sufficient to display the complete yard (upto a station with 6 to 8 lines). In case the yard is bigger & also if geographical control of a yard is proposed, then only second VDU is added A maximum of 3 colour VDUs along with 1 monochrome VDU is possible for one station yard or alternatively you can use 4 colour VDUs without any monochrome VDU. Provision is also made to scroll the yard from left to right.

ANNEXURE -VIII

The VDU panel can be configured as: (a) to have full 100% functional capability of the complete station yard (b) with geographic limitations of functions i.e you can control part of the yard (c) with very many limited functions (d) with combined limitation i.e both geographic and functions Standby VDU: Provision exists (optional) to have a standby colour VDU (monitor) in case the main VDU fails due to any reason Operation from a VDU Panel: In Domino type operating cum indication panel push buttons are used for setting a route or any other authorised movement. In VDU panel the operator has two choices. (a) Mouse (b) Key Board In ESA11-IR the Operator can either use a MOUSE or a Key Board to carry out the Train movement operations of a station. All VDU based operations except emergency operations are possible only after the operator inserts his smart card (equivalent to SMs KEY) into the ZPC. All operations of an operator are automatically logged. However, The following emergency operations on the VDU panel can be carried out at all times without the insertion of the chip card or smart card. Shifting of Signals to stop aspect. The process of route setting is exactly similar to domino based panel operation i.e click the entry signal button & the exit track button on the VDU panel. As soon as command is registered on the VDU panel, the panel responds by: Change of colour of the particular function In predefined functions, audible indication is also given If safety information is relevant, it will be displayed on the text portion of VDU on the page of risks. In all cases the command is automatically logged CONTROL LEVEL: (Interlocking Level) In the Relay Logic, the safety of the Interlocking is achieved by the use of Relay Circuits. Here in Electronic Interlocking, the safety is achieved through software and reliability is achieved by using 2 out of 2 architecture with 100% hot standby. This Level consists of a Special Rack, which houses the vital Computers, the maintainer terminal, the communication terminals etc. The typical equipment of such a special rack is shown below:

IRISET

Fig.: The typical control Level TPC Cabinet Rack. The ESA11-IR Control level or Electronic Interlocking level consists of technologic cabinet/rack in which are housed the following equipment: 1. Vital computer-TPC1 2. Vital computer-TPC2 3. Vital computer-TPC3 4. Vital computer-TPC4 5. Maintainer Computer- PCU 6. Maintainer Monitor 7. Communication HUBS 8. Associated Fuses, Power supply indicators etc. All these are housed in a special 19 cabinet rack (TPC Cabinet). The vital Computers TPC1, TPC2 are normally working computers functioning as 2 out of 2 Architecture i.e each computer or each channel works in total independence from the other & has a special comparator module which monitors the health of its own vital computer and during cross comparisons between TPC1 & TPC2 computers, if any discrepancies are found, the comparator module will generate a Fail Safe Reaction by cutting off the power supply to its own vital computer. This reaction in turn will switch off the power supply to the second vital computer.

Page 129

(S18) ELECTRONIC INTERLOCKING

ANNEXURE -VIII

When TPC1 & TPC2 are in state of active mode, TPC3 & TPC4 take up the role of Hot Standby computers & vice versa. Each Computer i.e TPC1 & TPC2 is having its own separate General Software which is totally different from each other. Each General Software is designed, & developed by different software teams. This assures that there will be no Common Mode failures, which is an essential feature of CENELEC standard. EXECUTIVE COMPUTERS: (INPUT/OUTPUT MODULES): Executive level (PRV) serves as the interface between the Control (interlock) level on one side and the outdoor signalling gears on the other side. After completion of an interlocking process step at the Control (interlock) level, i.e. after the dual processing of the data in each TPC & then after comparison between the TPC1 & TPC2 outputs, the resultant decision is then passed on to the respective executive computers PPa & PPb i.e. TPC1 to PRVa & TPC2 to PRVb, through serial links RS 485 or PENET. (PRVa is called Channel a & PRVb is called Channel b and both put together are called Executive Level PRV). In ESA11-IR, the Executive Computers too use, dual CPUs like at Control (interlock) Level, having its own intelligent diagnostic features, i.e. two independent channels are provided to receive the data from their respective vital computers & then pass it on to the field equipment after a successful cross comparison activity. The Capacity of each Executive Computer is: 1. Vital Outputs : 40 2. Vital Inputs : 80 3. Non- Vital outputs : 32 Please note that ESA11-IR treats all inputs as VITAL inputs. The ESA11-IR has provision to connect 40 such Executive computers to one Interlocking Level i.e. at each installation the capacity of inputs outputs are: 1. Vital Outputs : 1600 2. Vital Inputs: : 3200 3.
