Embedded Battery Energy Storage System for Diesel Engine Test Applications

Jianna Niu, George You Zhou, and Tong Wu
Abstract—As is known to all, components of locomotive will be abraded, deformed or damaged after a period of running. In order to ensure the locomotive running stably and extend its lifetime, periodic maintenance and testing must be performed. At present, as a means of load test, water resistance test has been widely used in locomotive diesel engine test field. According to conservative estimates, the static continuous test will accounts 15 ~ 30% of the energy production through the whole engine life. It will not only cause great waste of energy, but also cause severe corrosion of metal plate. This paper proposes a novel embedded energy storage system used in an energy harvesting demonstration project which is implemented to storage the energy produced during diesel engine test process. This paper also describes the project overall design and the function of key equipment. System simulation and experiment results show that this system is stable and reliable during energy harvesting.

Index Terms—Energy harvesting, energy storage, battery, power conversion system, battery management system, diesel engine test.
