Abstract: We present a hybrid (continuous-discrete) type of high-level Petri Nets, and describe how it can be applied to the study of train control systems. In addition to the elements of discrete high-level Petri Nets, the nets used here have continuous transitions, which are able to manipulate real-valued attributes of tokens. We outline two methods for simulating the hybrid models with a standard Petri Net tool. The simulation is then used for the performance analysis of moving and fixed block train protection systems.
