Influenced by the growing daily travel demand of citizens and extension of urban land, the construction of the urban railway transit (URT) system is gradually increasing nowadays. This situation implies more electricity consumption in URT and more challenges to URT operation stability. Therefore, based on the existing traction substation, this research proposes a configuration of multi-source traction system (MSTS) for URT with a coordinated control strategy according to power profile of the system. The proposed MSTS, including conventional traction system (CTS), renewable energy source (RES), and energy storage system (ESS), have been modelled first. After that, considering the system dynamic performance and ESS capacity, a coordinated control strategy is designed to manage the MSTS energy flow. The control strategy considers the substation voltage as control signal which is optimized by proposed performance index. The case study is conducted on a three-station railway route with two substations. The proposed MSTS with a coordinated control strategy is compared with normal CTS considering multi-train timetables with different departure intervals. The simulation result illustrates that the proposed MSTS can maintain the state of charge (SOC) of ESS and reduce the substation peak power and voltage fluctuation, which is verified both in short-term and long-term simulation. Meanwhile, it can improve the substation capacity by decreasing the energy consumption of CTS to deal with the increasing demand for URT. the case study denotes that the energy-saving rate can be up to 36.25%, and the peak power is reduced up to 46.32%.
