This year has been one of great expectations and even greater achievements for our Smart Grid team here at TPS. We have a number of exciting projects currently in development that aim to revolutionise the Energy market within the coming years. Some of these projects are listed below:

  • Active Response – This revolutionary project highlights our next generation Power Converters – These will be used by TPS in collaboration with UK Power Networks with the aim to release spare network capacity and reduce customer bills within the next few decades.
  • E-LOBSTER – Have you ever imagined connecting Railways, Electric Vehicles Chargers, Solar Photovoltaic Cells, Storage Systems and the Electricity Grid? Well…. TPS and its partners did it!
  • Smart Hubs – TPS is developing a Smart System that will allow Electric Vehicles to give power back to the National Grid. Let’s power-up using Low Carbon Technologies!
  • TPS and Northern Powergrid are developing an innovative solution and new technologies to help secure the electricity supply to isolated areas.

By visiting our stand, you will have the opportunity to learn more about each of our new projects. Moreover, you will witness our cutting-edge Power Converters for smart grid reinforcement which made all of the above possible! A visit to our stand will provide the ideal setting to discuss your specific requirements with our esteemed engineers in Smart Grid.

Our exhibits will include the award-winning Dual and Tri-Terminal converters that facilitate the creation of Soft Open Points (SOPs) on the Distribution Network. These power electronic converters make use of spare network capacity at existing substations to enable capacity sharing using Low Carbon Technologies.

TPS’ Dual and Tri-Terminal converters received first place at UK EIA 2017 in the Losses competition for significantly improving losses on the distribution network. They were also awarded with the “Best Electricity Network Improvement” at the 2015 Energy Innovation Awards. TPS’ innovative converters were installed in multiple locations across London and Brighton.

TPS has been shortlisted for the Railway Industry Innovation Awards 2018!

TPS makes it as finalist for the Railway Industry Innovation Awards 2018. We have been selected in the Environment category within this year’s Railway Industry Innovation Awards competition due to our innovative DC-DC Power Module!

TPS’ successful 100kW DC-DC power module is integrated into power conversion systems and it uses cutting edge Silicon Carbide (SiC) MOSFETs in its design. As a result, the power module increases power conversion efficiency and provides a durable galvanic isolation from input to output. This way it ensures protection for other equipment within the environment.

This product has been awarded “Power System Product of the Year” in 2016 within the renowned Elektra Awards ceremony and has also been shortlisted in the Product Innovation category at UK Rail Industry Awards this year. As we continuously strive to exceed expectations by developing innovative and sustainable solutions, being chosen as finalists again is a recognition of our credibility and efforts.

The Railway Industry Innovation Awards were founded in 1998 and represent the longest-standing awards scheme in the industry. This annual event aims to gather all players within the railway sector, or anyone who is interested in innovative developments in this area, to celebrate the brightest ideas in the industry. Within this event, we have been previously awarded with a Highly Commended Certificate in 2017 for our Mark 3 static converters developed in collaboration with Chiltern Railways.

Railway Industry Innovation Awards 2018

The winners of this prestigious award will be announced during the Awards Ceremony which will take place on Friday 22nd June at the Hilton, Paddington in London. Join us on 22nd June to celebrate our innovation which has been shortlisted at the Railway Industry Innovation Awards and for the announcement of winners – it will certainly be a memorable night!

Two awards taken home by TPS at UKRIA 2018!

We are extremely happy to share that we have been awarded twice for our Static Converter at the UK Rail Industry Awards ceremony (UKRIA) upon being shortlisted in 5 categories! This is the second time TPS have won in the Traction & Rolling Stock category, however this year we were selected as winners for Cost Base Reduction as well. The event took place at Battersea Evolution, London on 22nd March 2018.

TPS have won amongst impressive competitors that have also provided truly remarkable solutions. This demonstrates that our experience and capabilities are indeed outstanding and that our expertise allows us to offer highly reliable power conversion solutions to the rolling stock industry.

We have received two awards this year due to our efficient and reliable Static Converter which replaces the Motor Alternator (MA) equipment installed in loco-hauled coaches and trains powered through Thirdrail. Our innovative Power Supply can increase energy efficiency, provide substantial savings to the train operator and could lead to energy savings of over 4kW per journey compared to a motor alternator (MA) set. The Static Converter uses the existing mounting arrangement thus minimising conversion costs and provides a modern electronic MA replacement fully compliant with all rolling stock and network rail standards.

Please refer to link below for additional information on the product:

TPS would like to thank Chiltern Railways for their confidence and support in winning these prestigious awards:
