A survey on robustness in railway planning

Richard M. Lusby, Jesper Larsen, Simon Bull
2018 European Journal of Operational Research  
In the context of railway robustness it is often taken to be the capacity for operations to continue at some level when faced with a disruption such as delay or failure.  ...  Robustness in general is the capacity for some system to absorb or resist changes.  ...  Liebchen et al. [2010] introduce robustness into timetable planning by finding a periodic timetable with high delay resistance.  ...

Pengling Wang, Annik Jeiziner, Xiaojie Luan, Valerio De Martinis, Francesco Corman, Evelien van der Hurk
2022 Journal of Advanced Transportation  
In case of delay disruptions, the TMS rescheduling has its full effect only if trains are able to follow TMS rescheduled timetables, while the energy-saving by using ATO can only be achieved with conflict-free  ...  Results obtained for the Dutch railway corridor Utrecht–Den Bosch prove the value of the approach.  ...  In general, railway traffic is based on a timetable, defining the exact arrival and departure times for each train at each station.  ...

PReS: Power Peak Reduction by Real-time Scheduling for Urban Railway Transit [article]

Zekun Yang, Yu Chen, Ning Zhou, Shiqiong Tong
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Reduction of the power peak is a key issue in improving urban railway transit's power efficiency.  ...  Researchers have tried to address this problem by making a delicate timetable, but this method often failed to serve the purpose because of the punctuality problem.  ...  It is non-trivial since it requires close cooperation of real time sensing, communication, computation and signaling systems in the urban railway system.  ...
