Study on Vehicle Cumulative Energy Consumption of Signalized Intersections

By analyzing the vehicle running characteristics at signalized intersections, the authors studied the vehicle decelerating, idle running, and accelerating fuel consumption while passing through signalized intersections. The cumulative energy consumption model of a signal control intersection is derived, based on the analysis of the vehicle energy consumption on the direction of the intersection. Cumulative energy of a signal control intersection is established, while all directions intersect at the same time in non-saturated and over-saturated traffic conditions. The relations among the signal control parameters, vehicle arrival rates and intersection vehicle cumulative energy consumption are studied. The accomplishments from this research have provided a reference for further study on energy conservation in the intersection signal optimized control.
