Transports on rail are increasing and major railway infrastructure investments are expected. An important part of this infrastructure is the railway power supply system. The future railway power demands are naturally not known for certain. This means investment planning for an uncertain future. The more remote the uncertain future, the greater the amount of scenarios that have to be considered. Large numbers of scenarios make time demanding (some tens of minutes, each) simulations less attractive and simplifications more so. The aim of this paper is to present a fast approximator that uses aggregated traction system information as inputs and outputs. This facilitates studies of many future railway power system loading scenarios, combined with different power system configurations, for investment planning analysis. Since the electrical and mechanical relations governing an electric traction system are quite intricate, an approximator based on neural networks (NN), is applied. This paper presents a design suggestion for a NN estimating power system caused limits on active and reactive power load, i.e., limits on the levels of train traffic.
