Energy efficiency in train timetables planification

A.P. Cucala A. Fernández-Cardador C. Sicre

April 2007 - July 2008

Funding entity Indra

Participated by ADIF

The main goal of this project is the investigation and development, in collaboration with ADIF, of new models to calculate train timetables. The main module will optimise the distribution of recovery times to minimise the energy consumption. In addition, simulation based models will be developed to compute the maximum load of a train along a line, and the characteristic slope of a line.

    Research topics:
  • *Optimal design of signalling and railways capacity
  • *Energy efficient timetabling and train driving (Ecodriving)
