The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has launched a new train control and supervision system (TCSS) for its trains. The system is the first of its kind in India and will ensure that the trains run more efficiently and smoothly. The new TCSS will improve the safety, reliability and punctuality of the trains.
The TCSS is an advanced signalling system that will allow DMRC to monitor and control the trains in real-time. The system will provide real-time information on the location and speed of the trains, as well as any issues that may arise. The system will also be able to detect any potential problems and take necessary actions to prevent them from becoming more serious.
The new system is part of DMRC’s ongoing efforts to improve the safety and efficiency of its services. The TCSS will help the DMRC to improve the capacity of the metro system and reduce the time between trains. The system will also enable the DMRC to operate more trains during peak hours, which will help to reduce overcrowding and improve the overall experience for passengers.
The TCSS is based on Communication-Based Train Control (CBTC) technology, which is a proven technology used in metro systems around the world. The CBTC technology allows for precise train movements and reduces the need for track-side signalling equipment. The DMRC has also installed a new state-of-the-art Operations Control Centre (OCC), which will act as the nerve centre of the system.
The OCC will provide real-time data on the status of the trains, the locations of the trains and any issues that may arise. The OCC will also enable the DMRC to manage the entire metro system from a single location, which will help to improve the overall efficiency of the system.
The DMRC has been testing the new TCSS for several months, and the system has already demonstrated significant improvements in the safety and efficiency of the trains. The DMRC has also trained its staff to operate the new system, which will ensure that the system is used to its full potential.
