Keeping Electrical Railways Safe

Ensuring safety in rolling stock systems while maintaining the highest possible availability of equipment depends on identifying and dealing with faults at the earliest opportunity.

Operational equipment that cannot tolerate shutdown or failure is often designed as an ungrounded electrical network. This allows systems to continue running even if an insulation fault occurs, as eliminating an earth connection ensures the first fault current is typically not at a dangerous level, so it doesn’t trip the circuit breaker. Instead, the system delivers an alarm that ensures the fault is addressed before it escalates and causes problems.

A second fault on the same system changes the situation, because the fault current may reach a level where it could prove harmful or pose a fire threat. That makes it crucial to identify and rectify a first fault while the system can continue to operate.

Many critical ‘no fail’ industrial applications employ ungrounded systems, where unplanned shutdowns or failures can jeopardise safety and incur financial penalties and reputational damage.

Real-Time Monitoring

The latest trends in propulsion systems in rolling stock have increased the complexity and the potential for earth faults. It is therefore essential to have a real- time overview of the condition and identify threats quickly, maintaining availability and enabling proactive maintenance.
