EFFICIENT-INV

Sécheron EFFICIENT-INV inverters for regenerative braking systems convert waste energy from braking into electricity that can be fed back to the grid, boosting energy efficiency.

Main benefits

  • Inverters for regenerative brake systems
  • Convert waste energy into electricity
  • Reduced heat in tunnels and substations
  • No braking resistors on board
  • IGBT or thyristor available to meet your needs
  • Fast response time
  • Low maintenance and easy access to all parts
  • Reliable and robust
  • High efficiency, minimized losses

Sécheron draws on years of experience in the field of power converters for traction power substations to develop and manufacture reliable converters to recover waste energy from braking and convert it into electricity that can then be fed back into the grid. Our EFFICIENT-INV product line for regenerative braking systems was developed to meet all railway industry requirements, from harmonics, reactive power, overload capacity, and type of cooling system to maintenance and efficiency.

Our inverters can help reduce overall energy consumption and are both durable and easy to maintain. We can assist you at all stages of your project from drawing up the specifications to completing factory acceptance testing of the associated inverter transformer or autotransformer (for connection to an existing rectifier transformer).
