This paper proposes a hybrid energy system, which consists of a diesel-engine generator and a supercapacitor, for improving performance of a rubber tyred gantry crane (RTGC). The supercapacitor contributes to the energy recovery associated with regenerative braking in "Hoist-Down" braking operation and to the rapid energy consumption related with acceleration in "Hoist-Up" operation of the RTGC. Hence, it does save energy which is conventionally wasted by a braking resistor. Moreover, the large… CONTINUE READING
