INGEBER TM is a solution to allow substations reversibility for 750Vdc, 1,500Vdc and 3,000Vdc systems.
The system developed by INGETEAM to recover kinematic energy in railways, which solves existing energy braking recovery limitations, feeding back to the electricity grid the energy that would be burnt on the train’s resistance. The energy can also be used internally or stored.
INGEBER has already been installed in Bilbao Metro (1,500Vdc), Brussels STIB (750Vdc), Bielefeld / Germany (750Vdc), Barcelona Metro (1,500Vdc), ADIF (Malaga / Spain) suburban railways (3,000Vdc) and MetroRio (1,500Vdc).
INGETEAM amounts more than 20 systems installed.
The system’s power is planned based on the previewed savings and not on total installed power, hence costs are adjusted.
Its use does not modify the current substation installations, thus high-cost elements like the transformer can be reused.
Its operation is transparent to the existing system; therefore in cases of breakdown, it is possible to isolate it without interrupting the operation of the system.
With this device, it is possible to separate the train’s energy saving function from the train’s operating function, by not linking its recovery and consumption operations.
Its elements do not require an exhaustive maintenance because sensitive elements like condensers are not in contact with harmonic currents.
