The Korean tilting train called Hanvit 200 was launched recently in Korea to improve train speed up to 200 km/h at conventional lines. In this paper, we propose a HILS system for simulations of mechanical braking of the Hanvit 200 train using actual ASCU, actual dump valves, Simulink, dSPACE board, and ControlDesk software. In the proposed HILS system, dynamics of wheelsets, bogies and car body, brake force generation, creep force generations are realized via mathematical models, and anti-skid logic is realized using actual components. The validity of the proposed HILS system is demonstrated via comparing results of real-time and off-line simulations.
