Design Reliability & Safety for Light Rail Transit (LRT) Propulsion System
Thursday, February 10, 2022 @ 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
Reliability is a main design prerequisite in public transportation systems. This talk will address the governing parameters for a successful reliable propulsion system. Also, the system is not only required to be reliable but most importantly safe. Those considerations will highlight the power electronics’ components design. The talk will address how to combine safety and reliability into the design phase of any propulsion system. A case study will present the propulsion design of the Light Rail Transit (LRT) Vehicles. All pertaining design requirements will be verified towards the welfare of a successful deployment of the LRT project in Toronto.
