Disruptions and delay are very common and frequent in the day-to-day train operation. To mitigate disruptions and reduce delay, train movement in the railway network needs to be rescheduled ad hoc and in real time. Besides delay, energy consumption is also an important concern of railway managers and train operators, and another effective tool to manage the usage of time and energy is the advisory speed profile (ASP). ASP is a collection of reference speeds at different locations of the train journey provided to the train drivers. By closely following the ASP using appropriate traction and braking, the train can adhere to the predetermined schedule and save energy. This talk will start with an overview on the railway planning and operation procedure, and then focus on train rescheduling and ASP design, including: (i) their concepts, mathematical models and solution methods; and (ii) our recent progress in: rescheduling with advanced information on weather-induced speed limit reduction, the ASP design for single and multiple trains, as well as the integration of scheduling and ASP design.
