Abstract:   Nowadays, the use of energy storage combined with the regenerative braking systems of the trains can be already considered a conventional solution in railway systems. Such was the case that some manufacturers are using these kind of on-board accumulation systems to avoid the use overhead line equipment and to reduce the visual impact offering catenary free solutions.
