Optimal Control for Freeway Using a New Dynamic Model

In this paper, a new dynamic macroscopic model different from the Payne model is considered to solve the freeway control problem by means of simulations. Firstly, both ramp metering and variable speed limits are taken into account to aim at minimizing the total time spent. Secondly, to show the diverse suppressing results for shock wave by using VSL measures, three typical situations are taken into account. And then figures are put out to provide the result that in various traffic situations, the impacts of VSL may show large differences.
