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.

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.
