Interaction with OSJD Members on working programme and further steps for UIC-OSJD Joint Group on IRS

  • Standardisation

A UIC delegation attended the meeting of the 5th OSJD Commission for Infrastructure and Rolling Stock on the topic “CCS and communication networks” held from 25 – 27 August 2015 in Warsaw.
Delegations of railways from Belarus, Kazakhstan, Lithuania, Poland, Russia and Ukraine took part in the meeting.

Mr Dmitry Shaliagin, RZD representative, presented a draft of Leaflet R 820 on “Operational technical requirements for systems of automatic despatching control” which is being developed. The meeting discussed the remarks and proposals provided by Belarusian and Kazakhstan railways and agreed upon the 5th edition of Leaflet R 820 as the one of voluntary applications and suggested to approve it during the meeting of the 5th OSJD Commission from 27 – 30 October 2015 while cancelling the 4th edition of Leaflet R 820 on “Operational technical requirements for systems of centralised dispatching control” (valid since 28 October 2011) and the second edition of Leaflet R 846 on “Recommendations for progressive technologies on maintenance of installations of centralised dispatching control” (valid since 10 November 2005).

Mr Igor Kraskovkyj, BC representative, presented a draft of the Leaflet on “Operational technical requirements for protection of installations of railway automatics and telemechanics from commutation and atmospheric overvoltage according to its electromagnetic compatibility”. The meeting discussed remarks and proposals provided by Kazakhstan and Polish railways and agreed upon the first edition of that Leaflet which is going to be issued with the number R 851. The meeting suggested approving Leaflet R 851 as the one of voluntary applications during the 5th OSJD Commission meeting from 27 – 30 October 2015. Herewith it is suggested to cancel leaflets: R 850 “Operational technical requirements for protection of installations of railway automatics from commutation and atmospheric overvoltage” (first edition valid since 10 November 2005); R 809 “Electromagnetic compatibility of CCS microelectronic installations” (first edition valid since 16 November 2001); R 812 “Emission of oscillation of voltage harmonic components and flicker-effect in the CCS installations” (first edition valid since 30 October 2003). As far as UIC Leaflet 750 on “Railway telecommunications links – improvements to be expected from the use of telecommunications for operating purposes” (third edition valid since February 2006) does not contain requirements to be addressed to issues within leaflets R 850, R 809, R 812, therefore it did not take into account during the development of the first edition of Leaflet R 851.

Mr Syrym Tusupov, representing AO “NK “KTZ”, presented a draft of the Leaflet on “Operational technical requirements for rail track circuits to be applied in train traffic control and safety installations”, by issuing it with number R 816. The meeting discussed the remarks and proposals provided by BC, LG and RZD railways and agreed upon the first edition of Leaflet R 816 and suggested that it be approved during the 5th OSJD Commission meeting from 27 – 30 October 2015. Given that the Leaflet was developed on the basis of currently valid OSJD leaflets R 810 “Operational technical requirements for rail track circuits of sonic frequency” (first edition valid since 30 October 2003) and R 848 “Recommendations on passing of traction current on railway tracks equipped with track circuits and protection of CCS installations from impact of electric-traction net-ware of electrified railways” (second edition valid since 7 November 2000), experts suggested to the 5th OSJD Commission that the leaflets be cancelled.

The meeting discussed and approved the draft of the Experts Working Plan on the topic N-3 “CCS and communications networks” for 2016.

The participants accepted an invitation from Mr Marc Antoni, UIC Rail System Department (RSD) director, and put in the preliminary plan the meeting of OSJD experts on topic N-3 “CCS and communications networks” to be held from 21 – 23 June 2016 within the framework of the UIC experts meeting on “CCS and communication” at UIC Headquarters (Paris, France) together with technical visits to SNCF railway infrastructure.

UIC and OSJD agreed on OSJD leaflets, which are going to be approved in 2015, to be provided to UIC for further reviewing and analysing, to be potentially developed into IRS.

Mr Marc Antoni gave a presentation on UIC RSD activity within the domain of railway automatics, telemechanics and communications and invited OSJD experts to take part in UIC activities on railway automatics and telemechanics. Mr Marc Antoni informed and invited participants to the UIC Conference on Asset Management to be held from 12 – 13 October 2015 in Paris.

Mr Radovan Vopalecky, the Chairman of the 5th OSJD Commission, presented the OSJD website and its internal and external resources to be accessed after registration. Mr Radovan Vopalecky thanked Mr Bachtijar Safarov, 5th OSJD Commission specialist, for the excellent organisation and management of the meeting.
