INGETEAM has developed a simulation tool that will allow to make a detailed analysis, the dimesioning of the recovery systems and a previous economic study. Therefore, we can offer an investment planning associated to the raiways system analyzed .
The system incorporates a double converter connected to the catenary, in parallel with the substation’s rectifier to the existing transformer.
The function of the system is to constantly monitor the state of the catenary, converting recoverable energy into high quality AC power and subsequently injecting it to the general three-phase grid.
Moreover, the system also controls the three-phase grid’s harmonics, that act as an active front, allowing for a reversible action to provide energy to the catenary during power consumption peaks, with quality power consumption for the AC grid.
The simulation tool developed by Ingeteam Traction performs a prior energy balance of the railway system, simulates the results of the implementation of the recovery system and consequently carries out the correct dimensioning of the system, together with a prior detailed economic study.
Its use does not require modifications in the substation’s current installations, offers the possibility of re-using high-cost components, like transformers.
It is not affected by short-circuits in the catenary.
The excellence of our products and services is our reason for being, as well as the goal behind all our production processes and the tasks that our collaborators carry out. In keeping with this policy, we apply error analysis and continual improvement processes to our management, placing special emphasis on critical components. To this end, we demand the highest levels of quality from our approved providers and cooperate with them to incorporate the most advanced and reliable components in our products.
Our management system is recognised by ISO 9001 and 14001 certifications. Our processes are aligned with the agents and results of the EFQM excellence model. Likewise, our organization is seriously committed to the requirements imposed by IRIS standards.
