Energy-efficient train movement under steep-gradient track

Based on mechanical energy measurement, theoretical model of train movement is established. Then Hamiltonian function jointly expressed by state variables, adjoint variables and control variables are put forward, which led to the acquisition of necessary condition of optimal control strategy. While train encounters with steep-gradient section, new creative functional is introduced accordingly. By pursuing its extreme value, the authors can define new simplified discriminant to judge local optimal control strategy. Further global optimal control strategy emerge with the obtain of the precise phase sequence and phase transformation position, which combined with the comprehension of practical train movement environment.
