Abstract

Thanks to the recent development of electric vehicles (EVs), the application of electric energy storage techniques in electric railways is now widely believed to bring revolution to the energy supply system for railways. The author’s research group uses RTSS, a multi-train power feeding network simulator, to evaluate the flow of energy in the network in their research into the development of DC electric railway systems with energy storage. In this paper, simulation results that will demonstrate the possibility of this approach are shown. Keywords: energy storage, batteries, capacitors, EDLCs, multi-train simulation, pure electric brake.
