A system installed in 750 1,500 and 3,000 kV railway systems to recover kinetic energy via regenerative braking. When installed in traction substations, its reversibility is possible, allowing for the transmission of recovered energy to the main distribution grid, the operator´s grid or to the storage system.
Ingeteam solves all the limitations associated with the return of energy from the units. The equipment installed in the substation is connected to the main equipment that already exists ( such as transformer or rectifier) to allow the reversibility and the injection to the electrical grid, to the operator´s internal network, furthermore we can offer an storage solution for your infrastructure.
The system incorporates a double converter connected to the catenary, in parallel with the substation’s rectifier to the existing transformer.
