Abstract [en]

Experiences from the Swedish hybrid locomotive (T43H) are presented. The locomotive has a series hybrid propulsion system with a comparatively small diesel engine and a large battery pack. Original layout was a traditional diesel-electric power train. Indications from switch operations show fuel savings of 37 to 50 % with the hybrid locomotive. The Swedish experiences are thus in parity with North American experiences showing savings between 30 and 80 %. The evaluation showed that hybrid locomotives in switch duty have significant advantages compared to conventional diesel locomotives in terms of reducing fuel consumption and improving environmental performance.
