ENERGY REGENERATION

  • When electric- or hybrid-powered rail vehicle (e.g., trains, trams) brakes, Kinetic recovers wasted energy and stores it

  • When the vehicle accelerates, Kinetic releases energy to the vehicle's engine

  • Depending on the frequency of stops and the type of vehicle Kinetic could be placed wayside or mounted on the vehicle

  • In addition to reduced energy consumption and CO2 emission Kinetic could provide an additional boost to the vehicle for faster acceleration

PEAK SHAVING

  • A large number of trains accelerating and decelerating in quick succession during the peak hours cause frequency and voltage fluctuations and put electric networks and equipment under a considerable strain 

  • Kinetic accumulates energy during low demand times to provide peak power to the grid when needed 

  • Kinetic automatically regulates frequency and voltage, maintaining them within the required range thus​ mitigating the risks of blackouts and protecting the machinery 

  • In addition, improved energy quality allows for reduced intervals between trains

CRITICAL SYSTEMS AND EQUIPMENT SAFETY

  • Distortions and deviations that occur in energy systems of transport networks could adversely affect or even take out critical systems like signalling control or trains' internal systems

  • Gamma increases safety and reliability of the overall electric system as well as reduces maintenance and repair costs of the electric equipment by improving the quality of the power supply

  • Gamma stabilizes the current, eliminates short circuits, reduces harmonic currents, and smoothes ripples

OTHER BENEFITS 

Affordable and reliable service over a longer time

  • Unlimited number of 100% DOD cycles without degradation

  • Long service life of more than 25 years

  • Simple and low-cost maintenance

  • Wide operating temperature range from  -40 ° C to +80 °C

  • Complete operational safety, including explosion- and burst-proof (no need for protective casing)​

  • Environmentally friendly and recyclable, manufactured using non-hazardous materials

Сompatible with most electric-powered rail vehicles and could be easily integrated into the infrastructure

  • Сompatible with any DC-powered electric- or hybrid-powered rail transport

  • Requires only minor software adjustments and  modifications to vehicles and infrastructure 

  • Due to compact size and lightweight could be located wayside or mounted on the vehicle  

IMPROVED ENERGY EFFICIENCY

  • Existing smoothing reactors and filters although provide some degree of protection to the electrical equipment suffer from design flaws that lead to heavy magnetic flux and low energy efficiency 

  • Gamma leverages the unique design and technology to significantly reduce reactive power and energy losses while not compromising on the quality and reliability of filtration
