Metrology for smart energy management in electric railway systems

A.P. Cucala A. Fernández-Cardador A. Fernández Rodríguez

September 2017 - December 2020

Funding entity Comisión Europea

Participated by INRIM, Italy, CMI, Czech Republic, FFII, Spain, LNE, France, NPL, United Kingdom, VSL, Netherlands, HRI, Italy, Metro de Madrid, R.F.I., Italy, Railenium, France, STRATH, United Kingdom, SUN, Italy, Trenitalia, Italy, ASTM, Switzerland, METAS, Switzerland

The project aims to develop the metrological infrastructure for accurate measurement of energy exchange and for reliable system monitoring, which underpins the implementation of an energy efficient management of the European DC and AC railway and DC subway system. The project also focuses on the characterisation of the railway subsystem as a producer-consumer, with a view to its integration in a wide smart grid as well as on the assessment of eco-driving performances.
