Abstract
To satisfy the increased demand for transportation in Sweden the new high-speed railroad line is expected to be finished in 2035. The railroad is expected to connect the three major cities Stockholm, Malmö and Gothenburg with a top speed of 350 km/h. In this report the cost of on-board personnel and energy is investigated on the Lund – Stockholm stretch for speeds up to 420 km/h. The cost of personnel and energy is heavily dependent on the top speed of the line. The costs are then compared to a potential income to see if the choice of speed is financially justified. The calculations are based on the Siemens Velaro D train. For the acceleration to be reasonable for speeds up to 420 km/h the effect of the train had to be modified above 220... (More)
To satisfy the increased demand for transportation in Sweden the new high-speed railroad line is expected to be finished in 2035. The railroad is expected to connect the three major cities Stockholm, Malmö and Gothenburg with a top speed of 350 km/h. In this report the cost of on-board personnel and energy is investigated on the Lund – Stockholm stretch for speeds up to 420 km/h. The cost of personnel and energy is heavily dependent on the top speed of the line. The costs are then compared to a potential income to see if the choice of speed is financially justified. The calculations are based on the Siemens Velaro D train. For the acceleration to be reasonable for speeds up to 420 km/h the effect of the train had to be modified above 220 km/h. To accelerate to 420 km/h and then halt to a stop the combined distance was 57 km. Hence the result of this report was that an increase in speed from 320 km/h to 420 km/h had very little effect on the regional traffic because of the short distance between the stations. The 100 km/h difference in speed resulted a time difference of 8 minutes and 55 seconds, this represented 7 % of the total travel time. On the other hand the same difference in speed in the case of interregional traffic resulted in a 21 % total travel time cut with a minimal increase of the personnel and energy costs. Energy and personnel costs only represented 2,1 % of the income at 300 km/h and 2,0 % of the income at 400 km/h. Our opinion is that according to our calculations the new high-speed railroad should be designed for a higher speed. Track is expected to have a technical life of 120 years and the international development of higher speeds on rail shows no evidence of slowing down. High-speed lines are already being built for 350 km/h around the world and higher speeds are with a high probability going to be profitable within 120 years.
