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 kinds of onboard accumulation systems to avoid the use of overhead line equipment and to reduce the visual impact offering catenary free solutions. There exist other solutions for creating catenary free systems, like the ones based in third rail technologies (standard, controlled or inductive), but none of them are a good option for recovering the regenerated braking energy. In this webinar, we will skim through all of these technologies describing their main features, drawbacks, and benefits in terms of costs, operation, safety, reliability and efficiency.
Biography: Pablo Arboleya received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. (with distinction) degrees from the University of Oviedo, Gijon, Spain, in 2001 and 2005, respectively, both in electrical engineering. Currently, he works as an associate professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Oviedo (with tenure since 2010). He is head of the LEMUR research group team in charge of developing railway simulators and is managing editor of the International Journal of Electrical Power & Energy Systems published by Elsevier. Presently, his main research interests are focused on the static and dynamic modeling and operation techniques for distribution systems and Smart grids and railway traction networks. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE.
