Appenzeller railways (AB) were interested in the energy saving potential of their existing network. As an indicative example, ENOTRAC simulated the 10 km long section of track between St. Gallen and Trogen in FABEL. The focus was the energy saving potential on this section of track, which run with 1000 V DC at the time of the study, but will run with 1500 V DC in 2018. In this study, the potential of various power-saving installations was researched, such as recovery capable rectifiers, and both stationary and vehicle mounted energy storage units.
