Optimization of tramways fleet taking into account planning and reduction of energy consumption
Global optimization of tramways fleet is based on criteria such as the customer satisfaction (punctuality), the reduction of energy consumed by fleets (e.g. by recovering the brake energy (recyclability)) and more generally on the management of traffic (planning and dynamic reorganization) for the operators. The optimization considering urban one-way routes and the increase of traffic should also be addressed by developing adapted planning tools and/or methodologies. In this post-doctoral position, further developments based on previous works on energy efficient driving profiles for a tram-driver system will be realized.
