Perimeter and boundary flow control in multi-reservoir heterogeneous networks

  title={Perimeter and boundary flow control in multi-reservoir heterogeneous networks},
  author={Konstantinos Aboudolas and Nikolas Geroliminis},
In this paper, we macroscopically describe the traffic dynamics in heterogeneous transportation urban networks by utilizing the Macroscopic Fundamental Diagram (MFD), a widely observed relation between network-wide space-mean flow and density of vehicles. A generic mathematical model for multi-reservoir networks with well-defined MFDs for each reservoir is presented first. Then, two modeling variations lead to two alternative optimal control methodologies for the design of perimeter and… CONTINUE READING
