With the expansion of high-speed railway network, the issue of train energy consumption becomes more serious and attracts much greater concerns. One of the important ways of saving energy is to find the energy-efficient train reference profile, which actually is a problem of optimal control. In this paper, the control parameterization method, a general and efficient numerical approach, is employed to solve the optimal train control problem. The objective function is to minimize the train energy… CONTINUE READING
