   Stationary energy storage  evaluated  
Stationary energy storage devices can substantially enhance the recovery of braking energy in DC systems. The energy stored along the track or at substations can be used for traction purposes either by the same or by other trains. Apart from energy savings, stationary storage equalizes the variation of power demand and has thus a stabilising effect on catenary voltage.
Technology field: Regenerative braking and energy management
