Understand the history of, and the business case for electrification over diesel
Examine the planning requirements of electrification including technical, political, operational, topographical, environmental and safety
Review the constraints of an electrified railway including cost, time, budget, route gauge, track access, required training, power availability, existing infrastructure and maintenance
Study electrification system design considerations, including:
Gain a working knowledge of standards, train requirements, materials, voltage systems
Understand climatic/wind conditions, aesthetics, conductor systems, traction distribution
Appreciate earthing and bonding, traction return systems and communications
Recognise network effects, testing, commissioning, interdependent infrastructure
Analyse the requirements of constructing and maintaining electric railways
Examine case studies of various electrification projects, at various stages of the lifecycle

About the Course

Electrification has many advantages over alternative forms of traction, but it requires significant capital expenditure for installation. This course will examine the business case for electrification over diesel traction, and the differences between various AC/DC systems.

It is important to understand the significance of electrification in terms of an overall rail project, its role, influence and the changes that are/have to be made to ensure its a worthwhile investment.

Requirements, constraints and considerations of an electrified railway from a project management perspective will be discussed.
