It’s midnight on the North Atlantic, where a massive container ship receives the latest weather report. There’s a nasty storm brewing ahead. Quietly, the ship changes course and speed, to skirt the worst of it and ensure an on-time arrival at its destination. The ship’s owners and the harbormaster at its next port of call are advised of the revised route. And as it nears shore, the giant ship must correct course once again, this time to steer clear of a fishing vessel off its starboard bow.

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.
