Stratford upon Avon and return to establish a benchmark for the conceptual design of a hydrogen powered and. hydrogen hybrid vehicle A fuel cell power plant compressed hydrogen at 350 and 700 bar and metal hydride storage. are evaluated All equipment required for the propulsion can be accommodated within the space of the original diesel. electric train while not compromising passenger carrying capacity if 700 bar hydrogen tanks are employed The. hydrogen trains are designed to meet the benchmark journey time of 94 min and the operating range of a day without. refuelling An energy consumption reduction of 34 with the hydrogen powered vehicle and a decrease of 55 with. the hydrogen hybrid train are achieved compared with the original diesel electric The well to wheel carbon dioxide. emissions are lower for the conceptual trains 55 decrease for the hydrogen powered and 72 reduction for the. hydrogen hybrid assuming that the hydrogen is produced from natural gas. 1 Introduction hydrogen powered and hydrogen hybrid regional train is developed. and these are simulated over the same route Next the performance.
