This paper proposes a design method of installed fuel cell (FC) power and lithium-ion battery (LiB) capacity for fuel cell hybrid railway vehicles. To reduce the cost of such vehicles, reduction of the FC power and LiB capacity is needed. To achieve this, this paper discusses a reasonable design method of FC power and LiB capacity based on energy strategy and a FC output pattern considering load conditions such as running patterns and gradient. The proposed design method can be used to develop environment-friendly railway traction systems for nonelectrified lines.
