Research on Transport Capacity of Urban Rail Transit Based on RailSys

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 288)


The paper establishes a simulation model to study transport capacity of urban rail transit based on RailSys software and illustrates the core principle and quantitative standard of the method “UIC 406” and the modeling process of dynamic simulation. A concrete example is analyzed by application of RailSys dynamic simulation model. Then find out an effective way to improve transport capacity and put forward the corresponding optimization. The results indicate that RailSys software which is applied to the analysis of dynamic simulation of transport capacity of urban rail transit provides feasible suggestions for the actual operation and management.
