If you are involved with a rail electrification project, dont miss this comprehensive 2 day course. An industry expert will teach you what you need to know about planning, designing, constructing & maintaining electrified railways, along with his advice & insights. Key Learning Outcomes 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.
