The proposed paper presents the possibility of using the wayside energy storage devices (WESD) for the DC Heavy Rail Transport treating the design, costs and payback time. Moreover a case study comparison for the use of wayside energy storage devices on the heavy transport at the supply voltage of 3.3kV DC is presented. A method of sizing the energy storage devices using vehicle characteristics, traction power supply and running timetable is presented. The paper also presents the cost analysis for the most commonly used energy storage devices and the payback time.
