SEPCOS-SCM Presentation

Scheron SCMS Stray Current Monitoring System Characteristics


Based on potential measure avoiding any interference with the stray current collecting system Continuous monitoring of the tracks potential during operation Representation and archiving of potential values in a central unit Analysis and automatic localization of insulation deficiencies Monitored data available in real time over SCADA Recommended according to EN50122-2:2011

SEPCOS-SCM Stray current principle

Due to insulation of rails the potential of the track-earth is floating (in time and location) Stray current appears in case of insulation deterioration (dirt, premature ageing and wear insufficient maintenance) Corrosion of metallic structure in soil and close of tracks happens

SEPCOS-SCM Potential of rails

A healthy systems presents a specific voltage profile called reference or imprint A deficiency of insulation between the rail and the earth will modify this voltage distribution The track potential can be used to ensure the healthy of the system and determine a modification in behavior of the stray current by comparison with the reference curves

SEPCOS-SCM Comply with specifications

Proposed system is in compliance with BMRCL EP1-CC chapter 18.2.6.6 (taking into account Addendum 1) Proposed system fulfill the request from DDC document chapter 9 (Stray current monitoring) The proposed software will include more functionallity than requested - measurement of the current when the SCD in closed - log file of the SCD closing and taking into account in the analyse

SEPCOS-SCM Architecture

Scheron Sepcos- SCM collects the voltages between the return line and the structure earth via the measuring system integrated in the overvoltage device (SCD) along the tracks. The transmission of the measured values from the SCD to the central unit is done via a communication network: Ethernet, TCP/IP, MODBUS TCP, IEC61850, IEC60870-5-104 and DNP3 Existing network can be used as from the RTU The central unit archives, analyses and depicts the potential of the tracks via an HMI interface executable
