Strategic Study on Metro Train Comfortableness Based Operation
Reliving the stress of the urban public transport, the metro system is greatly superior to other transport methods on the load, energy consumption, mean drive speed, arrival on time and comfortableness. The passengers comfortable is the important part for developing the train operation strategies. For optimization of the energy, time saving and the passengers comfortableness during operation of the train, the proper objective function is designed. The train operation strategy for meeting the inter-stop passengers comfortableness at the curves was developed and the energy and time savings of the section were combined, and the optimization operation plan for the whole line was designed, to better meet the metro train operation.
