A double power converter installed in the substation and connected to the main equipment that already exists in the substation, such as the transformer and rectifier.
The system continuously monitors the catenary until it detects the point at which there is braking ener- gy from one vehicle that is unable to be used by another vehicle. At this time, the system extracts this energy from the catenary and transforms it according to the quality parameters of the supply grid so that this energy can be injected into the grid.
Its use does not require big 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.
