With the PowerStore you can reduce the impact of current traction systems on power supplies through the installation of PowerStore units only at terminals and other frequent stopping locations.
The PowerStore will reduce the peak demand and transmission costs of starting locomotives / trucks by supplying power to the traction network at the point it is needed.
Another advantage of the PowerStore is that it can also reduce the peak regeneration and transmission costs of stopping locomotives / trucks by absorbing power from the traction network at the point it is generated.
The PowerStore also gives you the option for augmentation of insufficient power supplies to allow new electrification of mines and / or locomotives.
The PowerStore can be used to stabilise isolated gas generation at the power station and to reduce the effects of machines stopping and starting on the traction power system, before it gets to the rest of the power system.
Due to PowerStores containerised design it leads to lower cost of installation at remote locations.
As the PowerStore connects to the supply AC side, it is traction technology independent. The PowerStore will work with any of the following.
1. DC traction systems
2. AC traction systems
5. Double phase transformers
With PowerStore's connection to the supply side of the Traction Sub-Station, it allows for a convenient monitoring connection to;
1. Connect to incoming AC
