   Ventilation control (retrofit)  evaluated  
Traction equipment is cooled by ventilation to prevent over-heating. The energy needed for ventilation can be substantially reduced by demand-controlled operation, i.e. by controlling ventilation power according to actual cooling demand of the motor (or other traction equipment). The technology can be integrated in old stock as a refitting measure in some cases.
Technology field: Optimisation of traction technologies
