Very High Speed Shinkansen (Bullet) Train Features
-Technology: The E5 Series Shinkansen uses a range of advanced technologies compared to conventional rails that achieve not only high speed but also a high standard of safety and comfort.
-Trains: The E5 Series Shinkansen trains will be electric multi-units that provide fast acceleration, deceleration and less damage to the rail due to the use of lighter vehicles compared to locomotives or electric cars. Initially, starting from August 15, 2022, a total of 750 trains with a capacity of 10 passengers will be operated. Then, it will be upgraded to a train with a capacity of 35 vehicles with a capacity of 1200 passengers.
Railway Line: Shinkansen uses the 1.435 mm inch standard gauge. Continuous welded rail and movable nose transition points are used, thus eliminating gaps in participation and passage. Long rails combined with expansion joints are used to minimize gauge fluctuations due to thermal elongation and contraction. A combination of ballast and slab track is used, only traces of slabs used in concrete bed sections such as viaducts and tunnels.
Signaling System: Shinkansen uses an Automatic Train Control (ATC) system that eliminates the need for roadside signals. It uses a comprehensive Automatic Train Protection (ATP) system. The signaling system in the high-speed corridor will be ERTMS (European Railway Traffic Management System) Level 2 according to the project feasibility report. ERTMS developed to standardize train protection systems, enabling interoperability with Indian rail and other networks
Electrification System: Shinkansen uses a 1,500kV AC overhead power supply to overcome the limitations of 25 V direct current used in the current electric narrow display system. Power is distributed along train axes to reduce heavy axle loads under single-engine vehicles. The AC frequency of the power supply for Shinkansen is 60 Hz.
Low Axle Load: The Shinkansen train has a lower axle load than other high-speed trains in developed countries. This helps to keep civil construction compact, and also reduces construction and maintenance costs.
Security: Shinkansen is equipped with the Emergency Earthquake Detection and Alarm System (UrEDAS), which enables the automatic braking of bullet trains in large earthquakes.
