A Review of Real Time Railway Traffic Management During Disturbances
This paper gives an over view of real time traffic management of the railway network in case of disturbances. After briefly introducing the problem of disturbance management and basic mathematical formulations, this paper overviews the existing literatures according to the typologies of traffic and levels of detail in the infrastructure models used for railway traffic network representation. A precise placement is made based on the effect of management decisions towards the various stakeholders. The application of these models in real life railway system is discussed based on the special constraints considered, the size of the railway network and the calculation time. Most railway disturbance management models are tested in an experiment setting at present, and if applied in practice they can be helpful to dispatchers to provide a higher quality service for all stakeholders involved.
