ENERGY MANAGEMENT

Available for all locomotive makes and models, our energy management system incorporates track topology, train consist information, route data, operating constraints and goals.

The system helps train operators to run in the most energy and fuel-ef­ficient manner over a given route by automatically controlling throttle and dynamic brakes.

Our Energy Management solutions adjust to train behavior and offer:

  • Higher overall fuel savings of up to 15 percent
  • Emissions reduction up to 15 percent
  • Improved train handling to reduce the risk of break-in-two and/or derailment
  • PTC integrated for our US customers

Progress Rail offers a fully integrated AESS™, reducing idle fuel consumption by over 50%, SmartConsist™, setting each locomotive to its optimal throttle position, and LEADER®, which determines the optimal control settings. All of these combine for a potential 15% in fuel savings.

EMD® Energy Management, Fuel savings

On top of this, Progress Rail developed SmartConsist to provide an additional 1 to 3 percent fuel savings, for total reductions up to 18 percent. SmartConsist sets each locomotive to its individual, prime throttle position within the consist, to improve overall fuel economy and reduce emissions, while achieving required power and tractive effort.

Additionally, our Automatic Engine Start/Stop solution – or AESS – monitors critical operating parameters during locomotive idle operation, safely and effectively shutting down the engine once all factors are satisfied. EMD® AESS provides superior fuel and lube oil savings, reducing emissions and wayside noise, while ensuring the locomotive remains ready for use. EMD® AESS reduces unnecessary idle time by more than 50 percent and improves locomotive fuel ef­ficiency up to 29 gallons per day for switcher use and 18 gallons per day for line haul operation.

SmartConsist™

The new EMD® SmartConsist™ Fuel Management System automatically sets each locomotive to its optimal throttle position — improving fuel economy, cutting emissions and reducing noise in the lead locomotive.

AESS™ AUTOMATIC ENGINE START/STOP

EMD® AESS™ is a fully integrated software solution that monitors critical operating parameters during locomotive idle operation — safely and effectively shutting down the engine when all factors are satisfied. When any one of the predetermined limits falls outside of the target range, AESS™ will restart the engine.
