Ticket2Kyoto explores energy recover systems

A research program funded by the European Union (EU) is testing various types of reversible substation that can enable regenerated braking energy to be recovered by metro and rail operators from direct current (DC) traction systems and return it to a thee-phase alternating current (AC) grid, as investigated in this article. The Ticket2Kyoto initiative brings together five urban public transport operators (TfGM, Manchester; moBiel, Bielefeld; RATP, Paris; RET, Rotterdam; and STIB, Brussels), with an aim of taking action against climate change by reducing CO2 emissions. Recovery of braking energy on metro and tram networks is one part of this.
