SYSTEM FOR THE ACCURATE CALCULATION OF ENERGY LOSSES IN A DIRECT CURRENT TRACTION NETWORK

VERFAHREN ZUR GENAUEN BERECHNUNG DER ENERGIEVERLUSTE IN EINEM GLEICHSTROM-TRAKTIONSNETZ

To estimate regenerative braking performance it is necessary to evaluate what amounts of energy can be saved. Losses in the fixed equipment are examined first of all. In the urban railway system studied there was found to be little difference between operating with or without regenerative braking as far as losses in the supply system and the return current were concerned. If, with the regenerative braking system the return current cannot be used by trains on the same section of overhead line, much greater losses are to be expected. Practically 30 to 48 percent of the energy used during acceleration can be recovered during regenerative braking.
