Modern metro trains have regenerative braking which helps reduce their electric energy consumption. The reduction in electric energy consumption depends on the instantaneous ability of the rail section near the braking train to use or store regenerative braking energy. This paper introduces rail wayside energy storage systems, presents specifications for a wayside energy storage system, and investigates metro rail wayside energy storage technologies best applied to projects seeking low ...
