Drive Train - Siemens shaves 10% off!!

Some nice news from Siemens on their Ecotram project, where they loojed at the drive train and the HVAC in particular.
Their system consists of smart controllers and proper insulation and can potentially reduce the HVAC power consumption by up to 10%.


According to the partners participating in the project, it should be possible to reduce energy consumption for HVAC systems by at least 10%. The objective is to develop a simulation model for the optimization of a tram’s climate control systems.
