Tóm tắt

Supercapacitors (SCs) are important devices used in renewable energy storage applications on urban railways due to their high power density, good performance, and long maintenance-free lifetime. The position and capacity of supercapacitors play an essential role in increasing energy efficiency and improving the operating condition of the power supply system. This paper proposes an optimal methodology to place a supercapacitor energy storage system (SESS) for urban railway lines. The proposed method uses simulation tools to determine the level of renewable energy as well as the cycle of renewable energy occurrence at substations. Next, based on the working characteristics of the supercapacitor to calculate the accumulated energy that can be reused. Finally, the problem of the optimal siting and sizing of the SESSs is solved to maximize the economic benefits. A case study is applied to evaluate the algorithm. The simulation results demonstrate that installing the optimal SESS can increase energy efficiency, lower transient power, and the solution found is the best choice for economic goals
