Generation Mechanism of Train Operation Conflicts in High Speed Railway

Tao Wang, Kang Huang, Xiaoli Song, Zhenyi Wang
As an important basis for the study of detection and mitigation of train operation conflicts, the analysis on generation mechanism of train operation conflicts in high speed railway has important practical significance on realizing intelligent high-speed railway dispatching command. With train operation late as the necessary conditions for train operation conflicts, the analysis sorts out the main reasons for affecting train operation conflicts from such four aspects as equipment facilities, human behaviour, external environment, and organization management and obtains 17 factors in the end. The interpretative structural modelling (ISM) is adopted to construct the adjacency matrix between the factors and calculate the reachability matrix and finally get a hierarchical and directed graph of the causes of conflicts through the hierarchy of factors. The results show that equipment facilities, transport organizations and dispatchers’ professional quality are the main reasons for train operation conflicts; natural environment, equipment operating environment, unexpected passenger flow and the psychological quality, educational level, years of service, etc. of dispatchers are the indirect causes of train operation conflicts; and working environment, the management of equipment and dispatchers and its mechanism are the deep-seated reasons for the train operation conflicts.
Keywords: high-speed railway, interpretative structural modelling (ISM), operation conflicts, train operation late
