Abstract In this work an onboard energy storage system for T3A type tramcar is developed and optimized using PSIM and Matlab/Simulink softwares. Energy storage system charging algorithm with constant filter capacitor voltage, which provides the automatic whole braking energy saving without significant modification of the existing tram power circuit, is proposed. To verify proper operation of the system the PSIM and Matlab/Simulink simulations have been performed for tramcar starting and braking processes in different situations, with and without another tram connected to the overhead line and for the autonomous traction mode.
