The main goal of this project is the energy cost reduction in railways operation optimising the use of regenerative break in metropolitan lines. Two models are developed:
1. A optimisation model of commercial timetables to maximize the synchronisation periods between the breaking process of a train and the speed up process of another train in the same electric section.
2. The optimal design of train control actions during the running time between stations, generating the ATO configuration parameters: coasting points, deceleration rates, etc.
