A Comparative Evaluation of Re-scheduling Strategies for Train Dispatching during Disturbances
2012 (English)Conference paper (Refereed) Published
Railway traffic disturbances occur and train dispatchers make re-scheduling decisions in order to reduce the delays. In order to support the dispatchers, good rescheduling strategies are required that could reduce the delays. We propose and evaluate re-scheduling strategies based on: (i) earliest start time, (ii) earliest track release time, (iii) smallest buffer time, and (iv) shortest section runtime. A comparative evaluation is done for a busy part of the Swedish railway network. Our results indicate that strategies based on earliest start time and earliest track release time have the best average performance.
