Ingeteam set to participate in the design and control course for the implementation of reversible DC substations
April 12, 2011
On this coming 5th July, Ingeteam is to participate in the 2nd course on the design and implementation of reversible DC substations, to be held at the Hotel Hesperia in Bilbao.
The course is directed at analysing the innovative system installed in the Bilbao underground, a system designed to recover the energy generated during the train braking process and to return it to the grid. The program also includes a technical visit to the Ripa substation where the INGEBER energy recovery system designed by Ingeteam is installed. Visitors will have the opportunity to study this equipment connected between the catenary and existing traction transformer and which accounts for an energy recovery percentage equivalent to 2.27 % of the annual net consumption for traction of the entire Metro Bilbao network (52,937 MW.h/year).
