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

  • Smoothing throttles 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

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

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 

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

OUR OFFER

Energy
Regeneration

save up to 50% of energy and reduce CO2 emission by recovering wasted brake energy 

Peak
Shaving

reduce peak demand by up to 40% and protect machinery and electrical equipment

 

ENERGY REGENERATION

  • Kinetic recovers and recycles energy generated by regenerative braking of rolling stock

  • When the train accelerates, Kinetic releases energy to the rolling stock's engine

  • Kinetic could be installed wayside or mounted on the rolling stock​

  • In addition to reduction of energy consumption and CO2 emission Kinetic could provide a faster acceleration to the train

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
