Resumo: Spoornet is one of South-Africa’s largest railway companies. It is very important to operate the railway system as cost effectively as possible. A large portion of the railway operates from 3 kV DC traction supplies. One method of cost saving is to utilise the regenerative braking mechanism of the electric trains.
