April 2009 - December 2009

Funding entity Renfe Operadora

Participated by Renfe

The objective of this project is the optimal design of ecodriving in high speed lines. Manual driving is designed to minimise the energy consumption fulfilling safety, operational and commercial requirements such as speed limits, punctuality, no interference to other trains...
The design is based on computer-aided design, heuristic search and the detailed simulation of the train motion and the energy consumption calculation, considering the characteristics of the track and train.

    Research topics:
  • *Energy efficient timetabling and train driving (Ecodriving)
