Tute sheet # 1 (Conventional dc and ac Traction) Q. 1 A suburban train runs with an average speed of 36 km/h between two stations 1.8 km apart. Acceleration and retardation are 1.8 km/h/s and 3.6 km/h/s respectively. Calculate the maximum speed of the train assuming trapezoidal speed-time curve.

Q. 2

A train is required to run between two stations 2 km apart at a schedule speed of 36 km/h, the duration of stops being 20 seconds. The braking retardation is 2.7 km/h/s. Assuming a trapezoidal speed-time curve, calculate the acceleration if the ratio of maximum peed to average speed is 1.2.

Q. 3

A train runs between two stations 2 km apart at an average speed of 40 km/h. The run is to be made according to simplified quadrilateral speed-time curve. If the maximum speed is to be limited to 60 km/h, acceleration to 2 km/h/s, coasting retardation to 0.15 km/h/s and braking retardation to 3 km/h/s, determine the duration of acceleration , coasting and braking periods.

Q. 4

A suburban electric train has a maximum speed of 72 km/h. The schedule speed including a stop of 25 seconds is 45 km/h. If the acceleration is 1.8 km/h/s, find the value of retardation when average distance between stops is 4.5 km.

Q. 5

An electric train has a average speed of 42 km/h on a level track between stops 1.4 km apart. It is accelerated at 1.7 km/h/s and is braked at 3.3 km/h/s. Draw the speed-time curve for the run.
