Check and forecasting of railway traffic regularity by a PETRI Nets based simulation model


The article describes the main features

of a railway operation simulation model. The

model simulates the operation of the elementary devices

composing the railway traffic management systems

by describing their logical steps sequence by using

the graphic formalism of extended and colored

PETRI Nets. The model may be applied in railway traffic

regularity studies as well as a decision support tool

for the planning of new or upgraded lines and their

timetable or for delays minimization in traffic management

by its automatic trains overcome functionality.
