Abstract

We present technical specifications and experimental results of test running of a railway vehicle powered by fuel cells in this paper. We are currently under development of railway vehicle equipped with fuel cells. We made a trial product of a railway vehicle equipped with 100-kW class fuel cells, and carried out experimental running tests. This paper has focused on the following features: • Specifications for the test railway vehicle equipped with fuel cells: Fuel cells, hydrogen storage cylinders, motors, and inverter • Outline of the test railway vehicle, equipment layout and configuration of traction circuit • Experimental test results on a test track Motor characteristic of the test railway vehicle, train performance curve and test results • Experimental test results at a rolling stock test facility Motor characteristic of the test vehicle and test results • Evaluation of electrical output characteristics of fuel cells Through our research as described in the paper, we anticipate to promote an-environment-friendly railway system.
