Hi-technology Signal System for Better Safety and Capacity

KOCHI: The specialties of Kochi Metro Rail don’t end with its cutting edge ‘Make in India’ coaches.

As indicated by KMRL powers, the Metro will be working on the ultra-advanced Communication-based Train Control (CBTC) signaling framework, which has a reasonable edge over the conventional settled block framework.

Alstom, which had as of now packed away contract for the flagging framework for `275 crore, is prone to start work one week from now on tracks where charge work has finished.

Additionally, Metro powers said work on the Operation Control Center (OCC) would start by month end. In India, the Hyderabad Metro Rail is the main other metro to utilize the CBTC framework. Considering the quick advance of the Kochi Metro, most likely it would be the principal Metro venture in the nation to claim train control by the CBTC. The other proposed metro rail ventures in the nation, including stage II of the Delhi Metro, will likewise have this innovation.

Traditional System versus CBTC

In the conventional altered block framework, the signaling framework works inside of the track circuit – the length of the track where the inhabitance of the train is recognized. The whole track is isolated into blocks, on the premise of a foreordained length, and every piece is ensured with the sign framework to keep trains from entering the possessed blocks. As the length of the blocks is as of now settled, numerous train developments won’t be conceivable in any piece, which restricts the recurrence of train administration to some amplify. Then again, in the moving-piece CBTC framework, the ensured segment for every train won’t be statically characterized by block areas, however by working a virtual moving piece. Plus, the trains themselves will convey their accurate position to Radio Access Points through a bi-directional remote connection, which will be transmitted to the station focus and the OCC. The significant point of preference of the CBTC is that it builds limit and security by diminishing the time interim (progress) between trains moving along a specific track. The CBTC will offer prepares some assistance with running with a progress of 90 seconds, which will handle top hour surge. In the conventional framework, the driver screens the sign framework. In the CBTC, then, the whole operations can be controlled naturally from the OCC. This will make it feasible for Kochi Metro trains to go without driver.

CBTC to accomplish Momentum

The CBTC will offer prepares some assistance with running with a progress of 90 seconds, which will handle crest hour surge. In the customary framework, the driver screens the sign framework. In the CBTC, in the mean time, the whole operations can be controlled naturally from the OCC. This will make it feasible for Kochi Metro trains to go without driver.
