Scope:

Advanced Tiny Auxiliary Converter with Compact and Optimised Natural Cooling for Efficient Power management in Trains.

 

Context: 

The conversion of the electrical energy available on an overhead contact line to electricity that can be used on board a train is necessary:

  • to drive the train and
  • to power its various auxiliary systems:  heating, air-conditioning, and lighting.

 

The aim of the Atac-Concept project is:

  • to develop new auxiliary power converter systems that are better integrated in their environments.  That means: 
    • better energy efficiency;
    • drastic reductions in size and weight for better integration in the car’s body; and
    • quieter running.
