Prospects for the urban transportation systems development based on the concept of “Mobility as a service”

Romanov A.S.


Background: For several decades now, the problem of the "auto-centric" model of megacity transport systems development has been a burning issue, which is characterized by serious negative consequences in the long run, despite certain conveniences for individual users. Urban mobility provides the population with access to economic resources, so a reliable transport system is a key condition for the sustainable development of modern agglomerations. The usage of digital technologies together with innovative products can ensure the efficient operation and competitiveness of public transport. "Mobility as a service" is an end-user-oriented model of urban mobility, which can promote the gradual abandonment of personal car use.

Aim: Consider organizational models for implementing the concept of innovative mobility, identify the potential benefits of digital transformation of the urban transportation system, based on the model of efficient mobility "mobility as a service".

Methods: General scientific research methods such as the systematic approach, analogy, generalization and synthesis were used.

Results: The article explores the innovative urban mobility model based on mobility-as-a-service technology, examines the organizational models of MaaS, identifying the main barriers to implementing this concept along with potential advantages and disadvantages.

Computer simulation of long line with loss in steady harmonic mode at active load

Krivorotova V.V.


Background: The implementation of projects to create long-range power systems requires the greatest possible study of not only the technical feasibility of long lines, but also the features of energy transmission along these lines. Such studies can be carried out in the field, using a physical experiment or using computer simulation. The first is limited by the complexity of the experiment, the lack of access to real measurements. Unlike a physical experiment, computer simulation is devoid of these problems: it makes it quite easy not only to model a long line, but also to study it under various operating modes. The practical significance of this work is the applicability of the proposed method in the educational process when students of energy specialties of transport universities perform research on lines with distributed parameters to solve subsequent problems in the development or development of new energy systems of great extent.

Aim: Building a computer model of a long line and developing a method for studying various modes of its operation under various loads, including idling and short circuit.

Methods: Computer modelling.

Results: A computer model of a line with distributed parameters has been constructed, which allows one to study it under various modes.

Conclusion: As part of the development of energy systems, the relevance of developing and modeling new methods for studying various modes in such circuits increases many times over. At the same time, newly developed methods should be applicable in the educational process. The article describes computer simulation and study of a long line under various active loads of the distribution of the effective value of the voltage along the line during its transmission, equal to half the wavelength (half-wave line). Research in this direction has not only scientific significance, but also practical, since it is possible to reasonably develop new models of long lines, as well as solve problems in the field of studying non-stationary (transient) operating modes of long lines.

Zhuravleva N.A.


Background: The Sustainable Development (ESG) issue, declared by the UN in 2015 and approved by the Russian Government in 2020, is going through challenging times: the drivers and incentives that have been driving national economies to growth are undergoing significant change. In a situation where many infrastructure organisations have left or temporarily withdrawn from cooperation with Russian companies, the question arises as to how to fill this gap so that companies choosing to continue their movement in the ESG agenda can have the appropriate infrastructure and support.

Aim: The scientific hypothesis of the influence of transformational leadership on the activity of sustainable development processes (ESG) and the development of tools to assess this influence on the effectiveness of transport organisations' operational and business models.

Methods: The methodology of the work is based on the development of the theory of transformational leadership as a new type of effective management activity, the concept of evolution of digital platforms and ecosystems.

Results: The positions of the scientific hypothesis on the impact of transformational leadership tools on the efficiency of operational and business models of transport organisations implementing sustainable development projects and the establishment of a new type of management activity have been confirmed. It has been proved that the existing transactional leadership metrics (KPIs and deviation management) cease to work in the current environment. A model has been developed to quantify the appropriateness of the impact of transformational leadership on sustainable development goals of transport companies.

Conclusion: It has been substantiated that transformational leadership that ensures the principle of unity, intersectorality and resource conservation becomes a new type of management activity that ensures growth of long-term returns from social and 'green investments'. Sustainable development projects of Russian transport companies have been systematised and the conclusion about the superiority of investing in long-term development projects over projects that ensure short-term profit generation has been substantiated.

Anokhov I.V., Rimskaya O.N., Khomov A.V.


Background: The article examines the existing and designed technologies of railway transport, positioned as digital in the specialised literature

Aim: Study of the process of digitalization of railways, considered as a condition for the digitalization of the entire national economy. The object of the study is freight rail transport in Russia.

Methods: To analyze the digitalization process of railways, modeling of a closed production-consuming reproduction loop was applied.

Results: An important condition for the digitalization of the national economy is the presence of a conditionally closed economic circuit, served mainly by rail and connecting consumers and the entire chain of producers. Such contours should be focused on the absolute needs of the population, which are the most predictable and stable from a quantitative point of view. This, in turn, contributes to the implementation of production and transport activities in a routine manner without human intervention based on digital technologies. The organizational allocation of such closed economic circuits, according to the authors, will make it possible to move on to the digitalization of the national economy.

Conclusion: Railway transport is most suitable for the design of such closed economic circuits and their subsequent digitalization, because technologically isolated from the external environment as much as possible.
