Learn to work more effectively with those who design signal systems through this entry-level training designed to build your awareness of base system architecture, the jargon, and operational aspects of signal and train control systems.
Key Learning Outcomes:
Gain a working knowledge of fundamentals for railway train control and signalling systems for freight, intercity passenger and urban light rail transit operations. Learn how many of todays train control and signalling systems are designed and operated to increase railway capacity, reliability, safety and competitiveness. Explore the merits of the different types of signalling and control systems Hear the latest information about the methods and technologies being used in current rail signalling practice. Review the applicable rules, regulations, standards and specifications that govern the design and maintenance of various signalling systems.
About the Course:
This course provides participants with a sound basis in the theoretical and practical requirements in signalling and control systems in the rail environment.The course begins with a critical historical exploration of signalling and control system so that participants grasp the underpinning lessons for change in system design (along with technology changes). These lessons are reflected in the remaining content.The course then goes on to explore in increasing depth, the function, operation and design requirements of these two critical rail systems.Covered throughout the course are the key concepts, terminology and types of signalling and control systems, along with plenty of discussions and activities to gain a firm understanding.The course rounds out with an overview of the various design requirements, the key performance requirements and the nature of the tools and systems that guide contemporary system design.
