It is vital that engineers are able to understand the need for maintenance of the infrastructure and the life cycle of the electrification systems used on the railway.
REIS 2015 is a four day course presented by 20+ expert lecturers who have worked on railway systems around the world. The course will address complex areas of the design and integration of electrification systems within major projects for new and upgrades of: DC and AC mainline, suburban, metro and tram systems.
It will specifically address system interfaces including electrification, signalling, communications, and traction vehicles, in addition to examining design tools including system integration, project management and project delivery of large-scale infrastructure projects.
Attendees will develop technical understanding of the following:
Project requirements and specification
Electrification system design and integration
Current developments in railway electrification infrastructure, for heavy rail, metros and light rail systems
Carbon reduction and energy efficiency in electrification design
Innovation in electrification design
Maintenance of the infrastructure and the life cycle of the electrification systems currently in use on live railway systems
State of the art requirements for traction drives
Technical visits include:
