Abstract:  
Train braking energy regeneration in the urban electrical rail transportation systems can reduce both energy consumption and operational cost of the system. In this paper, an optimal design of an onboard energy storage system (OESS) with a volume constraint is presented for urban electrical rail transportation systems (UERTS). The onboard super-capacitors are considered as the storage system. The objective function in this study is the total cost, including energy consumption and super-capacitor depreciation costs. The optimal design is executed considering five different traffic scenarios for daily metro headways and passengers. Determining the optimum capacity of the energy storage system minimizes the total cost of energy storage installation and energy cost while improving the voltage profile of the system. Simulation results confirm the effectiveness of the proposed optimization method.
