抄録

A hybrid railway traction system with fuel cells (FC) and electric double-layer capacitors (EDLC) is discussed in this paper. This system can save FC costs and absorb regenerative energy. A method for designing FC and EDLC on the basis of the output power and capacitance, respectively, has not been reported, although their design is one of the most important technical issues encountered in the design of hybrid railway vehicles. Such a design method is presented along with a train load profile and an energy management strategy. The design results obtained using the proposed method are verified by performing numerical simulations for a running train. These results reveal that the proposed method for designing the EDLC and FC on the basis of the capacitance and power, respectively, and using a method for controlling the EDLC voltage, is sufficiently eiffiective in designing efficient EDLC and FC of hybrid railway traction systems.
