Abstract

The thesis deals with different control strategies and a design method to improve energy efficiency and reliability in light railway transportation systems. The possibility of use Supercapacitors Energy Storage System (SESS) in light railway systems is explored, by evaluating the suitability of on-board application for a Prototype Railway Vehicle, with the introduction of a methodology for Design to Range in catenary free operations in order to fill gaps in power supply. Furthermore, a stationary configuration of SESS in light railway system is also investigated by means of a demonstrator of a Metro rail System set in Hitachi Rail Italy test room, carrying out a control strategy for energy flows management in case of non receptive DC grid. Further investigations has regarded the introduction of two sensorless control strategies for two different railway traction architectures with IM and PMSM drives, focusing the attention on energetic and dynamic performance in different specific operating conditions required to the railway traction drives. Numerical and experimental results are obtained and discussed in different operating conditions, for real case studies, showing the feasibility and the fulfillment of the mission for the different solutions proposed.
