Abstract: Now a day’s energy conservation is the most important thing in the world wide. The area of traction also take this into the consideration, so they take a step forward to use regenerative energy which is generated through the regenerative braking in the train. This regenerated energy most of the time get wasted in form of heat. Or most of the time it fed back to overhead equipment. Using regenerative braking energy battery energy storage system is charging used in many countries like japan, New Zealand, UK. This paper presents the implementation of a dc dc boost converter which used this regenerated energy in the traction system and boost the voltage of battery energy storage system. This paper presents the improved dc-dc boost converter which can be implemented in future in the Indian railways system. Arduino based PMW dc dc converter used in traction system to charge the battery energy storage system.
