The consumption of electricity of rail transport is a function of many variables and can be provided by the quality of technical and organizational solutions that translate into specific investment costs (construction of rolling stock) and performance. The problem of energy efficiency in electrified transport is multidimensional and includes not only the factors affecting the level of energy consumption for the purpose of traction, but also the selection of technical measures to ensure effective, energy-efficient construction vehicles including financially justified investment outlays and operating costs, traffic organization and transportation.

Comparing the different configurations of the above factors, we can analyze the possibility to optimize ener-gy consumption by moving the issues of training programs and energy-efficient driving simulators.

According to the authors simulators can be used to study energy-efficient train driving cases. In this article it’s presented the possibilities of ETCS and DMI for studying the energy effective solutions for railways. Design and development of the DMI is an open issue for the solutions proposed by industry and the presented design philosophy that has been adapted by passing industry. DMI analyzes the flow of information and decide which information to show, which color is to be applied, when is necessary to use a sound. ETCS simulator is an ideal tool for the following purposes - knowledge of the system; demonstration of the system; tests (analyzes of op-erational proposals for implementation); validation; training.


ETCS; DMI; tests; simulations.
