Abstract: In this paper, fuzzy control simulation is applied in the operation course of a high-speed train, realising the intelligent control during the high-speed train operation, and has a good effect on imitating human operation, the degree of control freedom is good and the parking error is minimal. The fuzzy control simulation study of a high-speed train operation process will drive and advance the discussion and settle the problems related to high-speed train automation. The simulation study is carried out in the MATLAB circumstance, which combines Fuzzy Logic Toolbox with SIMULINK organically, exerting each advantage fully, making the simulation course of the more complex fuzzy control system simplified greatly. The simulation result shows that this method is effective and accurate. The combined method of fuzzy controller and SIMULINK widens the application scope of SIMULINK, also expands the application to the other type of non-linear control system; therefore, it offers a new path for non-linear system simulation.
