Title: Marginal cost congestion pricing based on the network fundamental diagram
Abstract: Congestion pricing schemes have been traditionally derived based on analytical representations of travel demand and traffic flows, such as in bottleneck models. A major limitation of these models, especially when applied to urban networks, is the inconsistency with traffic dynamics and related phenomena such as hysteresis and the capacity drop. In this study we propose a new method to derive time-varying tolling schemes using the concept of the Network Fundamental Diagram (NFD). The adopted method is based on marginal cost pricing, while it also enables to account realistically for the dynamics of large and heterogeneous traffic networks. We derive two alternative cordon tolls using network-aggregated traffic flow conditions: a step toll that neglects the spatial distribution of traffic by simply associating the marginal costs of any decrease in production within the NFD to the surplus of traffic; and a step toll that explicitly accounts for how network performance is also influenced by the spatial variance in a 3D-NFD. This pricing framework is implemented in the agent-based simulation model MATSim and applied to a case study of the city of Zurich. The tolling schemes are compared with a uniform toll, and they highlight how the inhomogeneous distribution of traffic may compromise the effectiveness of cordon tolls.2

Title: Performance improvements for large-scale traffic simulation in MATSim
Abstract: In contrast to aggregated macroscopic models of traffic simulation, multi-agent microscopic models, such as MATSim, enable modeling of individual behavior and facilitate more detailed traffic analysis. However, such detailed modeling also leads to an increased computational burden, such that simulation performance becomes critical.

This paper looks specifically at theMATSim simulation framework and proposes several ways to improve its performance. This is achieved through a combination of several approaches, including reducing disk access, decoupling computational tasks, and making use of parallel computing. Additionally, for the traffic simulation, an event-based model is adopted instead of a fixed-increment time advance approach.

Experiments show that by applying these methods, a simulation speedup of four times and more is achieved (depending on the scenario) when compared to the current Java micro-simulation in MATSim.

Initial simulation experiments on a high-resolution navigation network of Switzerland – containing around one million roads and 7.3 million agents – demonstrate that real-world scenarios can now be executed in around one-anda- half weeks using the improved model. Ways to further shorten the computational time of MATSim are also described.2

Title: Adding electric vehicle modeling capability to an agent-based transport simulation
Abstract: Battery electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles are envisioned by many as a way to reduce CO2 traffic emissions, promote renewable electricity generation and thus increase energy security. Electric vehicle modeling is an active field of research, especially with regards to assessing the impact of electric vehicles on the electricity grid. But as highlighted in this chapter, there is a lack of modeling capability for detailed electricity demand and supply modeling. Furthermore it is also pointed out that such modeling requires an interdisciplinary approach and a possibility to reuse and integrate existing models. In order to solve this problem, a framework for electric vehicle modeling is presented, which provides strong capability for detailed electricity demand modeling and is built on an agent-based traffic simulation. A case study for the city of Zurich is presented, which highlights the capabilities of the framework to uncover possible bottlenecks in the electricity grid and its power to support policy makers in taking decisions.2

Title: Infrastructure and Policy Design for Electric Vehicles
Abstract: The presented work tries to bridge this gap and presents a framework which allows temporal and spatial evaluation of policies, especially for short and long-term scenarios within transportation in general and for electric vehicles in particular. One of the main goals is to design policies, which lead to a desired outcome with high probability (e.g. CO2 reduction). For our modelling we envision to use an agent-based approach (described in next section), which can help to uncover possible policy flaws/hidden loop holes by inspecting complex emerging behavior of subsystem interactions.2

Title: Congestion pricing based on dynamic features of the Macroscopic Fundamental Diagram
Abstract: Studies into optimal congestion pricing are typically based on analytical representations of travel choices and network traffic flows. In this paper we show how congestion pricing schemes (or more precisely, cordon tolls) can be derived from the concept of the Macroscopic Fundamental Diagram (MFD). This approach is consistent with the transport economic notion of marginal cost pricing, while it also enables to realistically account for the dynamics and heterogeneity in the (aggregated) network traffic flow conditions. To this end, we first analyze the hysterical dynamic relations between the macroscopic fundamental traffic variables of network speed, network production, network accumulation, and spatial variance in the network accumulation. Subsequently, we show how through these relations captured by the generalized MFD one can compute the marginal costs of a surplus of traffic inside the cordon area, which is then used as a basis to design a flat toll and step toll pricing scheme. Furthermore, a third tolling scheme is designed to explicitly account for the temporal hysteresis loops in the MFD and the influence of the spatial variance in network accumulation. The pricing framework is implemented in the agent-based simulation model MATSim and applied to a case study of the city of Zurich. The alternative tolling schemes are evaluated against a number of traffic performance indicators to show how these deal with the hysteresis and spatial variance in the network accumulation.2

Title: Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles and Smart Grids
Subtitle: Investigations Based on a Microsimulation
Abstract: The introduction of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and electric vehicles (EVs), commonly referred to as plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs), could trigger a stepwise electrification of the whole transportation sector. However, the potential impact of PEV charging on the electric grid is not fully known, yet. This paper presents an iterative approach, which integrates a PEV electricity demand model and a power system simulation to reveal potential bottlenecks in the electric grid caused by PEV energy demand. An agent-based traffic demand model is used to model the electricity demand of each vehicle over the day. An approach based on interconnected multiple energy carrier systems is used as a model for a possible future energy system. Experiments demonstrate that the model is sensitive to policy changes, e.g., changes in electricity price result in modified charging patterns. By implementing an intelligent vehicle charging solution it is demonstrated how new charging schemes can be designed and tested using the proposed framework.

Title: Simulating Parking Search
Abstract: In the recent years several agent-based parking models have emerged, which provide policy makers with temporally and spatially rich data, what would be impossible to acquire using aggregated models. As we found out, all recent agent-based parking search models, lack the ability to account for the influence of parking shortages on mode or location choice. We close this modelling gap by proposing a new parking search model, which should be built on top of an existing agent-based traffic simulation called MATSim. We point out, that the parking strategy evaluation procedure of the previous parking search models delivers systematically too high search times which can be avoided using the proposed approach. Furthermore we also describe how individual valuation of parking search components (e.g. search time, cost and walk time) could be incorporated in the model. Currently an implementation of the proposed parking search model and an application for the city of Zurich is in progress.

Title: Agent-based simulation of electric vehicles
Subtitle: Design and implementation of a framework
Abstract: Major global concerns for today's world are the implications of climate change and future energy security. The transportation sector plays an important role within this context, as it currently heavily relies on fossil fuels. In order to break this dependence, electric vehicles could play a key role, especially due to their greater energy conversion efficiency compared with conventional vehicles. Furthermore, by using electricity these vehicles can play an important role in the energy system of the future, where energy generation is envisioned to be more sustainable, incorporating a higher share of renewable energy resources. However, as many of these energy sources are intermittent and require energy storage capacities, the batteries of electric vehicles could take up this role; by exchanging information between electricity demand and supply stakeholders in real-time ("smart grid"), an electric vehicle would charge at times of electricity oversupply and stop charging or even supply energy back to the grid for short periods in times of electricity generation shortage, in order to stabilize the electricity network ("vehicle to grid").
But there are also concerns that the electricity grid, which has not been designed with dynamic demands in time and space in mind, could suffer from the large scale integration of electric vehicles. This could manifest itself in powerline and transformer overloads on lower levels of the electricity network distribution infrastructure. This security and stability of the gird is further at risk due to increased distributed energy generation (including alternative energy) and the liberalization of electricity markets. In this case electricity is traded beyond national borders, leading to possible congestion at powerlines. In order to support the analysis and future design of such complex systems including electric vehicles, integrated modeling of energy demand and supply is needed. This dissertation proposes a framework for such modeling, with particular focus on electricity demand modeling for electric vehicles.
As many problems within this context require disaggregated models in time and space, e.g. to uncover bottlenecks in the electricity grid, an existing agent-based travel demand simulation called MATSim is used, which allows the modeling of individual preferences. In order to prepare MATSim for simulation of large scale disaggregated electric vehicle scenarios, a new traffic micro-simulation model is implemented together with other performance enhancements to the framework, making use of parallel computation. Additionally, the current parking model in MATSim is rexi placed by a new parking model, which takes parking supply constraints into account and also supports special parking for electric vehicles with integrated electricity charging facilities. The parking choice model has been developed further towards an initial parking search model in the course of this dissertation.
Based on this work, a framework has been developed that integrates various models, including a vehicle fleet definition, vehicle energy consumption models and electricity charging models. In addition, various types of charging infrastructure are modeled including stationary infrastructure with plugs and inductive charging along roads. Furthermore, several types of charging schemes are available including smart charging, where an intelligent central entity in the smart grid is assumed which controls the charging of vehicles.
During the course of this dissertation it became evident that there is a lack of integrated and detailed electricity demand and supply models, which hampers interdisciplinary work in the field. Therefore, the framework is being generalized and published as open source under the name "Transportation Energy Simulation Framework". For many models only basic implementations and interfaces are provided. The idea is that other researchers who are experts within their fields can build on top of it, for example models for "vehicle to grid" applications.
A case study for the city of Zurich is presented in this dissertation, which highlights the capabilities of the framework to uncover possible bottlenecks in the electricity network. Furthermore, the case study also highlights the ability of the models to support policy design. To the best of the author's knowledge such integrated modeling is the first of its kind, in terms of methodology, spatial and temporal resolution and scenario size.2

Title: Housing and Mobility Demands of Individual Households and their Life Cycle Assessment
Abstract: Household consumption, apart from governmental consumption, is the main driver of worldwide economy. Attached to each household purchase are economic activities along the preceding supply chain, with the associated resource use and emissions. A method to capture and assess all these resource uses and emissions is life cycle assessment. We developed a model for the life cycle assessment of housing and land-based mobility (excl. air travel) consumption of individual households a small village in Switzerland. Statistical census and dwelling register data are the foundations of the model. In a case study performed on a mid-sized community, we found a median value of greenhouse gas emissions of 3.12 t CO2 eq. and a mean value of 4.30 t CO2 eq. per capita and year for housing and mobility. 21% of the households in the investigated region were responsible for 50% of the total greenhouse gas emissions, meaning that if their emissions could be halved the total emissions of the community would be reduced by 25%. Furthermore, a cluster analysis revealed that driving factors for large environmental footprints are demands of large living area heated by fossil energy carriers as well as large demands of motorized private transportation.

Title: An Agent-Based Cellular Automaton Cruising-For-Parking Simulation
Abstract: This paper reports on the development of an agent-based cruising-for-parking simulation using the cellular automaton (CA) approach. The software was tested on a small-scale scenario, and a first verification step was performed for a real-world scenario for the town center of Zürich. Approaches to integrating the simulation into MATSim, a multi-agent transport simulation program, are discussed. The software is open source and can be downloaded from a free software repository. Empirical data that may be valuable for future model calibration are currently being surveyed in a global positioning system (GPS) study at the authors' institute.

Title: A dynamic cordon pricing scheme combining the macroscopic fundamental diagram and an agent-based traffic model
Abstract: Pricing is considered an effective management policy to reduce traffic congestion in transportation networks. In this paper we combine a macroscopic model of traffic congestion in urban networks with an agent-based simulator to study congestion pricing schemes. The macroscopic model, which has been tested with real data in previous studies, represents an accurate and robust approach to model the dynamics of congestion. The agent-based simulator can reproduce the complexity of travel behavior in terms of travelers' choices and heterogeneity. This integrated approach is superior to traditional pricing schemes. On one hand, traffic simulators (including car-following, lane-changing and route choice models) consider travel behavior, i.e. departure time choice, inelastic to the level of congestion. On the other hand, most congestion pricing models utilize supply models insensitive to demand fluctuations and non-stationary conditions. This is not consistent with the physics of traffic and the dynamics of congestion. Furthermore, works that integrate the above features in pricing models are assuming deterministic and homogeneous population characteristics. In this paper, we first demonstrate by case studies in Zurich urban road network, that the output of a agent-based simulator is consistent with the physics of traffic flow dynamics, as defined by a Macroscopic Fundamental Diagram (MFD). We then develop and apply a dynamic cordon-based congestion pricing scheme, in which tolls are controlled by an MFD. And we investigate the effectiveness of the proposed pricing scheme. Results show that by applying such a congestion pricing, (i) the savings of travel time at both aggregated and disaggregated level outweigh the costs of tolling, (ii) the congestion inside the cordon area is eased while no extra congestion is generated in the neighbor area outside the cordon, (iii) tolling has stronger impact on leisure-related activities than on work-related activities, as fewer agents who perform work-related activities changed their time plans. Future work can apply the same methodology to other network-based pricing schemes, such as area-based or distance-traveled-based pricing. Equity issues can be investigated more carefully, if provided with data such as income of agents. Value-of-time-dependent pricing schemes then can also be determined.

Title: Optimizing parking prices using an agent based approach
Abstract: Many cities around the globe are haunted by limited supply of parking and inefficient fee schedules, which often result in additional traffic by people cruising for parking. Pricing parking in an optimal way both from the municipality's and user's perspective in order to balance demand and supply is essential to solve this problem. We propose an agent-based approach to iteratively find such an optimal parking price. A major innovation of our parking model is, that it takes taste heterogeneity of drivers into account. By applying the model to a test scenario in the city of Zurich, we successfully demonstrate, that the model provides key figures, which are essential for supporting decision of policy makers. The paper also discusses some future work, e.g. other applications of the model in the area of parking choice and parking search modeling.

Title: An agent-based parking choice model
Abstract: Parking choice is an essential part of individual transportation; however, many travel demand and traffic simulations do not include parking. This paper reports on a proposal for a simple parking model and describes how this model was implemented into an existing, agent-based traffic simulation. The parking model provides feedback to the traffic simulation so that the overall simulation can react to spatial differences in parking demand and supply. Simulation results of a scenario in the city of Zürich, Switzerland, demonstrated that the model could capture key elements of parking, including capacity and pricing, and could assist with designing parking-focused transport policies. The paper also discusses possible work, such as microsimulation of the search for large-scale parking.

Title: On the Interdependence of Intelligent Charging Approaches for Plug-in Electric Vehicles in Transmission and Distribution Networks
Abstract: This paper proposes a novel approach to assess the impact of different plug-in electric vehicle charging strategies on power generation, transmission and distribution. The proposed impact assessment tool integrates simulations of transport behavior as well as power generation, transmission and distribution. The detailed temporal and spatial information of vehicle behavior obtained from the transport simulation is mapped to the transmission and distribution network models to perform a holistic assessment of the impact of different charging strategies. The charging strategies considered are uncontrolled charging and two types of smart charging schemes, one centralized the other decentralized. The advantage of this integrated approach is that both local and system-wide aspects can be analyzed simultaneously, uncovering effects that would otherwise remain unnoticed.

Title: Integrating power systems, transport systems and vehicle technology for electric mobility impact analysis and efficient control
Abstract: Electric mobility is considered as a promising option for future individual transportation in terms of lower CO2-emissions and reduced dependence on fossil fuels. In order to analyze its impacts effectively, an agent based model is proposed. It integrates three domains which are mainly affected by electric mobility. Vehicle fleet evolution and vehicle energy demand simulations are combined with a transportation simulation, thus determining the daily behavior of electric vehicles and providing individual battery energy levels at the different locations of the vehicles during the day. Further, a power system model combined with a charging control algorithm is included in order to study general effects in electricity networks and to provide insights into new electric vehicle load patterns, as well as into changes in transport behavior. It is shown that network congestion can be mitigated using control signals. The paper describes the method and the integration of the three different domains and shows results of the integrated analysis tool.

Title: A dynamic cordon pricing scheme combining a macroscopic and an agent-based traffic models
Abstract: Pricing is considered an effective management policy to reduce traffic congestion in transportation networks. This paper combines a macroscopic modeling of traffic congestion in urban networks with an agent-based simulator to study congestion pricing schemes. The macroscopic model, which has been tested with real data in previous studies, represents an accurate and robust approach to model the dynamics of congestion. The agent-based simulator can represent the complexity of travel behavior in terms of departure time choice and heterogeneous users. While traditional traffic simulators (including car-following, lane-changing and route choice models) consider traffic demand as input, i.e. inelastic to level of congestion conditions. On the other hand, most of traditional congestion pricing models, utilize a network supply curve which is not consistent with the physics of traffic and the dynamics of congestion, as they are sensitive to demand fluctuations and non-stationary conditions. Also, many of the existing pricing models are assuming deterministic and homogeneous population characteristics. In this paper, we first demonstrate by case studies in Zurich urban road network, that the output of a multi-agent based simulator, is consistent with the physics of traffic flow dynamics, as expressed by a macroscopic fundamental diagram (MFD). We then apply a dynamic cordon-based congestion pricing scheme, in which tolls are controlled by an MFD, and investigate the effectiveness of the proposed pricing scheme. Results show that by applying such a congestion pricing, (i) the savings of travel time at both aggregated and disaggregated level outweighs the costs, (ii) the congestion inside cordon is eased while no congestion is shifted to outside cordon, (iii) during toll period, fewer work-related activities shift starting time than leisure-related activities do; while the impact of toll is more significant in the evening than morning. Future work can apply the same methodology to other network-based pricing schemes. Equity issues can be investigated more carefully, if provided with data such as income of agents. Time-dependent or value-of-time-dependent pricing schemes then can also be determined.2

Title: Predictive, distributed, hierarchical charging control of PHEVs in the distribution system of a large urban area incorporating a multi agent transportation simulation
Abstract: The paper describes a method for investigating the impacts of wide-scale Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) integration in electricity networks. It incorporates an agent-based transportation micro-simulation, which provides detailed temporal and spatial information of PHEV behavior including vehicle connection times, locations and energy demands. These inputs are subsequently used in power systems simulations. The power system model incorporates smart management devices which distribute, potentially scarce, power efficiently between connected PHEVs. Thesemanagement devices ensure a secure power system operation. The integrated transportation and power system model provides detailed insights on impacts of wide scale PHEV adoption on electricity systems, outlines expansion needs and provides a proof of concept for the operability of a future smart grid.

Title: Agentenbasierte Simulation für location based services
Abstract: Mobilität bildet den Grundpfeiler auf dem ortsbasierte Dienstleistungen (Location Based Services) ruhen. Darum ist ein präzises Abbild der Mobilität der zu erreichenden Zielgruppen für diese Art von Diensten unerlässlich. Mikrosimulationsmodelle zur Generierung von Mobilität liefern hierzu eine vollständige Mobilitätsanalyse, inklusive der Entscheidungsfindungsprozesse mobiler Individuen und somit die Verknüpfung statistisch relevanter Kenngrössen für unterschiedliche demographische und sozio-demographische Gruppierungen mit detaillierter, dynamischer Mobilität. Diese Eigenschaften bilden den Kernaspekt zur Dimensionierung von ortsbasierte Dienstleistungen. Basierend auf dem Open-Source Forschungsprojekt MATSim ist das erste, vollständig integrierte Umlegungs- und Verhaltensmodell für Zeit-, Routen-, Verkehrsmittel- und Ortswahl für die gesamte Schweiz entstanden.

Title: A framework for investigating the impact of PHEVS
Abstract: The paper proposes a framework to investigate impacts of wide-scale Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) utilization on power- and transportation systems. It consists of two interacting parts, a power systems- and a transportation simulation. The latter one finds an equilibrium representing vehicle behavior used as an input for power system simulations incorporating distribution power network bounds. These results are fed back for renewed transportation simulation until system convergence.2
