Power Optimisation in the Rail Industry
While rail transportation is considered a relatively clean and efficient way of transporting freight and persons, a drastic increase in traffic volume is expected in the future. At the same time, a decrease of greenhouse gas emissions is demanded by the European Union and various Green Energy Groups.
Reducing Power Usage and Optimising Power in the Rail Industry has many additional benefits for everyone involved. Recent research shows that an effective Voltage Optimisation Strategy can reduce Power Bills by up to 20% giving companies the ability to reinvest money saved from Power into other areas. Solutions from A.M. Transformers have the added benefit of being “Fix and Forget”, meaning they can be installed and rolled out on a largest scale very quickly.
AM Transformers can provide a complete solution to Power Optimisation at all stages of the Process. If you want to stay compliant with EU Rules and save serious time and money, get in touch with one of our experts TODAY!
What is Voltage Optimisation?
To cut a long story short, the process of Voltage Optimisation is one of systematically looking into where Power is used and applying Energy-Saving Techniques to as many stages of the process as possible. There is a common misconception that electrical loads need to remain constant, and AM Transformers argue that this is not correct. The notion that electrical loads always have constant power is not correct. For example, if the input current or voltage is required to vary in order to maintain the existing power level.
The formula P = I x V is used to calculate the power that is used for the product of both the current flowing and voltage applied. Power Required (P) is equal to Input multiplied by Voltage. AM Transformers will use this formula to Optimise the Power used – which depends entirely on the NATURE and TYPE of load concerned.
