As has been mentioned, this methodology combines the use of a traction system simulator (IDOM-REPS DC) and modeling using 3-D © Maxwell FEM technology for low and medium frequency electromagnetic systems. In projects, the current trend is to include a collector system for stray currents, in order to alleviate adverse effects, by reducing the percentage of current circulating through the infrastructure. This procedure allows us to evaluate the efficiency of the different collector systems, adjusting the costs of these. It also allows the characteristics of the different elements to be modified, elements such as the degree of humidity of the concrete or the ground, and the level of degradation of the insulation of the rail fixings, which leads to estimate the behaviour of the systems designed in different scenarios.
Schedule of the presentation
The presentation will be on November 9, at 13:30 in Room 3, during the Poster Sessions (the East Midlands Conference Centre of the University of Nottingham). Click on the following link to see the complete program of the Conference.
