Evaluation of mobile and stationary applications of energy storage for DC railways and rapid transit

Pullen, K. R., Grigorchenkov, I. and Johnson, D. (2012). Evaluation of mobile and stationary applications of energy storage for DC railways and rapid transit. Paper presented at the RRUKA Annual Conference, 07-11-2012, Royal Society, London, UK.

Abstract

A meaningful comparison of stationary and mobile applications of energy storage on DC railways requires assessment of their values with respect to strategic objectives rather than merely energy savings. This paper describes a possible treatment of the problem and outlines an evaluation process for determining the preferred alternative on the wholelife cycle basis. A multiple-objective approach to the evaluation can compliment commonly used cost-benefit analysis and help decision makers in effective integration and deployment of energy storage technology on DC railways and rapid transit.
