Abstract

A running-profile generation method has been developed that efficiently generates the minimum energy running profile, even in railway lines which have complicated speed limit sections. In the developed method, the problem of minimizing energy consumption is formulated as a resource allocation problem by dividing a running profile into several blocks, and is solved by the incremental method. A concept of Uni-Braking Block (UBB) which has only one brake section within it is introduced for the formulation. The developed method guarantees that the generated running profile gives the minimum energy consumption, due to the fact th
