Electric cars with regenerative brake have been in service since the end of 1960 on DC traction sections and they are now the main stream of rolling stock. DC feeding system is partly intended for regenerative braking but it can not satisfy the need. The paper describes how to adapt the power supply system to the electric cars with regenerative brake, how to set the feeding voltage and the increase of the regenerative power rate by the lower voltage.
