Abstract


We investigate the problem of designing energy-efficient timetables for railway traffic. More precisely, we slightly adapt a given timetable draft before it is published by moderately shifting the departure times of the trains at the stations. To this end, we propose a mixed-integer programming model for feasible adaptations of the timetable draft and investigate its behaviour under different objective functions which fall into two classes: reducing the energy cost and increasing the stability of the power supply system. These tests are performed on real-world problem instances from our industry partner Deutsche Bahn AG. They show a significant potential for improvements in the existing railway timetables.
