Abstract
This paper introduces a microscopic simulation based method to analyze and calculate carrying capacity of railway stations. Due to the random disturbance of train operations in station area, an analytical stochastic model of train delay and operation time is proposed, which considers the stochastic variations of train operations and resources occupations. In addition, we implement a computer-aided tool to analyze and evaluate the carrying capacity of railway stations. Finally, taking Beijing South railway station as a real world example, we use the method to calculate the capacity of this station.
