Abstract
The paper include the method of reducing the drawbacks of current metro system by using super-capacitor. Energy is generated from sources like solar, wind, hydro, coal etc. But there are disadvantages regarding building of plants, running, maintenance or availability of resources (fuels) which will be exhausted one day and also new generation of rapid trains requires even maximum effective energy management for reduction of energy consumption during the process. This project drives metro with the help of super-capacitor, it is a type of battery which is huge and very bulky, as this capacitor required some place to install it on train so that it will give power supply to motor. And, the super capacitor will charge itself through braking also. On the basis of the work of a metro-train, the super-capacitor system has been used for energy that tries to limit overhead current and, consequently, drop of voltage at the train pantograph. This will eliminate the use of overhead lines, construction of signal poles, electric wires and will also reduce the cost of maintenance. Its one time installation and maintenance cost being low with long lasting life. The super capacitor based metro train will be the mind blowing achievement in future by looking for rapid consumption of fuel in present situation.
