MAHLA, Ingeborg y OVALLE, Ricardo. A NEW HYBRID DYNAMIC METROPOLITAN TRAIN MODEL. Ingeniare. Rev. chil. ing. [online]. 2010, vol.18, n.3, pp. 302-315. ISSN 0718-3305. doi: 10.4067/S0718-33052010000300004.
An integral dynamic model of the metropolitan train type transport system is presented. The interactions between the trajectories of the trains in use and the passenger exchange between the cars and the platforms in the stations along the tracks are described. In contrast with the current traffic engineering models based on passenger flow, this model allows the simulation of passenger accumulation that occurs on the platforms when the train cannot transport the total number of passengers waiting for it. The dynamics of the metropolitan train is modeled with a hybrid system in which the platforms and the trains are considered as continuous modes and train arrival at the stations as discrete events.
