131 On November 10, 2015, Odakyu Electric Railway’s Commuter Train Type 1000 won the Excellence Award at the 12th Eco-Products Awards. The renewed commuter railcar Type 1000 is the first in the world to adopt a VVVF inverter control system compatible with DC 1,500V overhead lines that applies full SiC (silicon carbide). This has made the equipment more compact and lightweight, and has also significantly improved the amount of regenerative power generated during braking. The VVVF inverter controller uses full-SiC semiconductors, which are expected to be applied as key devices in the future. The VVVF inverter controller uses a full-SiC semiconductor, which is expected to be applied as a future key device.
The power loss is lower than that of conventionally used semiconductors, and the power consumption to run the train can be reduced. The ability to operate at high temperatures has also reduced the size of the cooler, reducing both volume and weight by more than 80% compared to conventional devices.

Type 70000(GSE)

135-3 134-3
On October 20, 2016, Odakyu Electric Railway announced that it will manufacture 14 cars (two 7-car trains) of the new Romance Car 70000 type by November 2017 as a replacement for the LSE, and will begin operation in March 2018. Like the LSE and VSE, the first car will have front-view seats, the “symbol” of Odakyu Romance Cars, and the bogie system will be the normal system instead of the interconnecting bogie system used for the LSE and VSE. The design is by Noriaki Okabe Architecture Network, which designed the 7th generation VSE, etc. Each car is 20m long, and the seven-car formation is about the same length as the VSE, about 142m. The running gear uses totally enclosed motors to reduce noise, and VVVF inverter control using SiC elements and LED lighting to save energy. The nickname of this series is “GSE”, which stands for “Graceful Super Express”, and was chosen from “Graceful” of the Romance Car concept “Romance Car running gracefully through time (time) that continues to Hakone”. Also, with the completion of the double-decker line (March 2018), the maximum speed between Shinjuku and Hakone-Yumoto will be reduced from 80 minutes to 70 minutes.
