It multiplies all input variables xi by a weight factor wi. The sum of the weighted input variables Σwixi is then transformed by neuron using activation function f (also called transfer function of a neuron) and becomes the output neuron y = f (Σwixi). Activation function expresses the intensity of the neuron response to a given input. The most frequently used activation function is sigmoid z = 1/(1 + e−z). g. linear function, step function, hyperbolic tangent etc. The sigmoid is the most often used one because it is similar to the biological response function.

The S&C ventilation plant located 10 m above track level is inactive at the beginning of the simulation. After 180 s the S&C ventilation plant is activated and ramped up over 30 s to 280 m3/s after which it remains constant. This is to account for the time required for the ventilation operator to activate the correct ventilation mode. The tunnel ventilation plant was assumed to be inactive within this simulation. However, an induced air flow is used to replicate the tunnel flow conditions. The natural ventilation openings in the station are assumed to open after 180 s.
