Product description

‘A Monorail system with cutting-edge technology’

Turbo Power Systems (TPS) are designing bespoke Power Conversion Equipment like no other for the Rail Industry. TPS products have great emphasis on highly efficient, light, compact and reliable systems. Some of our key products include Auxiliary Power Supply (APS), Battery Chargers and Converters. One revolutionary product - Auxiliary Power Supply (APS) unit - was tailored to the client’s needs for many International projects including King Abdullah Financial District, Sao Paulo and Scomi Kuala Lumpur.

This Monorail APS boasts many unique features including a liquid cooling system designed as modular Line Replaceable Units (LRUs). These LRUs have quick release with no-leak couplings integrated into the main vehicle cooling circuit for ease of maintenance. The 3phase, Single Phase and DC conversion circuits were optimised to meet the specification and still achieve the smallest space and lowest weight for each module. The enclosure was fabricated using weight reduction techniques more frequently seen in the aircraft industry.

In addition to the power modules, it also features an extensive diagnostic and data logging facilities. This data can be accessed directly from the APS by connecting it to a computer, running the TPS developed software known as Portable Test Equipment (PTE). The PTE is a diagnostic tool for investigating the running parameters and the fault history on the range of APS products, designed and built by TPS.

The Monorail APS underwent an extensive program of validation testing. This included environmental, EMC and performance tests. Most of the tests were carried out at the TPS facility, with specialist Test Houses used where in-house facilities were not available. “These validation and performance tests ensured, that the APS would function as required under the most severe mechanical and electrical environments that could be encountered around the world” said by TPS.
