Electricity is produced by or injected in the network of the Infrastructure Manager. This network has converter stations, substations and (overhead) contact lines in order to bring the energy towards the trains. Braking trains might reinject energy in this network. This energy can be reused by other trains, stored in flywheels or transferred to low voltage for charging of batteries of electrical cars. This workshop will deal with the optimization of the energy flow in both directions.

Key words: Electrification System Voltage, Flywheels, Power Electronic Converters.
