North Central Railway
Energy Conservation by way of energy regeneration in 3-phase electric locos by the Loco Pilots of NCR –
NCR is Highest over Indian Railwaysin energy regeneration
Principal Chief Electrical Engineer/North Central Railway, Sri Nasim Uddin felicitated 10 Loco Pilots of North Central Railway by giving cash award & LED bulbs for their excellent contribution in electrical regeneration in 3 phase locomotives. While complimenting the Loco Pilots, he motivated them to continue their efforts in the area of energy conservation as well as protection of environment.
It is worth mentioning that 3-phase Locomotives have a unique useful facility of converting mechanical energy of the trains into electrical energy during braking which otherwise would have gone wasted. Loco Pilots have been encouraged to maximise use of this facility available in these locomotives.As a result, energy regeneration to the tune of 15% of total energy consumed by these locomotives has been achieved over NCR.A record saving of about 7.9 crores units of energy by way of energy regeneration has been achieved during 2018-19 (April to December) over NCR which is Highest over Indian Railways.
Shri Anupam Singhal, Chief Electrical Locomotive Engineer and other officer & staff were also present on the occasion.
