Program 1 – Power and Propulsion

The objective of the Power and Propulsion research program is to deliver energy and cost efficiency and improved competitive performance in advanced rail manufacturing. This will be achieved through research, development and commercialisation in the following fields – Energy Regeneration and Storage, Advanced Braking Systems, and Electronic Motors and Systems.

The list of current projects now underway includes:

  • R1.1.1 – New lithium-ion batteries with high energy and long service life
    HEC Group / University of Technology Sydney
  • R1.1.2 – Hybrid supercapacitors with high energy and power densities
    HEC Group / University of Technology Sydney
  • R1.3.4 – Supercapacitor energy management system stage 2
  • R1.3.5 – Lighting and control battery back-up
    Downer / CSIRO
  • R1.3.6 – Battery pack durability
    Knorr-Bremse / CSIRO
  • R1.5.1 – Aluminium matrix composite brake discs
