DC hot rail power conversion
to stabilized AC voltages for emergency
Kinetics Industries has designed,
manufactured and time tested, in
transit / traction applications,
a highly reliable, "stand-by"
emergency power, traction duty,
DC to AC motor alternator set system.
The Kinetics auxiliary power system
provides stabilized AC output, independent
of DC voltage variations caused
by transit car motors accelerating
and decelerating (regenerating)
onto a common DC transit bus. The
Kinetics system has been designed
within an efficient, heavy-duty,
enclosure with vibration isolation,
for installation within the space
restrictive confines and harsh operating
environments of subway utility power
rooms. All components are selected,
electrically and mechanically, for
long term service in the extremely
harsh application environment of
sub-street level transit applications.
Systems can be used in conjunction
with a utility AC "street"
power service, to provide a dual
power system redundancy within a
subway station for critical loads
such as emergency lighting and ventilation
