Monsoon Oriented Seasonal Freight Density Operation of Railways and Rolling Motor Way
Abstract: In the world, railway transport system only utilizes electricity with high efficiency for running the trains and carrying heavy loads through electrified traction as when compared to other transport systems. Since if it possible to run the road vehicles under electric power four to five times of electric energy will be needed which consumed by railway transport system for carrying the same load. On the other hand, million numbers of batteries are needed to operate the road transport, which catches high cost and also create environmental pollution. In this context, Green energy is in the form of electricity and generated through solar photo voltaic cells and wind mills is considered as an alternative resource for operation of transport system. Also, wind mill energy can be got in abundance during monsoon season of each country and it is heaviest energy in Giga watts among all other non-conventional energy sources. So, expansion of electrified traction of railways in all possible routes of each country can be done by installing more wind mills and photo voltaic cell panels. This process will help the railway to get maximum demand of electricity without any harm to environment during monsoon season. Loaded lorries and trucks for long journey may be carried with railway wagon called as Rolling Motor way. Then by increasing traffic density of freight movement during availability of wind and hydro electric power of monsoon period of each country called as Monsoon oriented seasonal freight density operation which is the new role of railways. Though existing track of railways is enough for the movement of Rolling Motor way, It will be better separate corridor of electrified traction for freight movement. Since in road transport system goods traffic of lorries and truck uses larger amount of diesel than buses. The process of monsoon oriented seasonal freight density operation will regulate the role of railways through which global warming can be reduced and fossil fuels can be saved. This will lead to control the prices of essential commodities.
