1 Traction & Power BACKGROUND This is a new stream in the new Higher Diploma in Electrical Engineering; This stream aims to fulfil the REW Grade B academic requirement; and This stream covers the works in traction and railway system, locomotive and electrified trains, rolling stock and depot, and vertical transportation system.
2 Traction & Power BACKGROUND We forecast that the job markets in traction development in Hong Kong is blooming in this decade Existing electrified transportation: KCRC East Rail (Kln - Lo Wu) KCRC Inter-city line (KTT) MTR Urban lanes (TW, QB, Island) MTR Lantua lanes (AEL, TC & APM) Tramways and Peak Tram
3 Traction & Power Future Development KCRC West Rail (Phase I: Nam Chong - Tuen Mun) Ma On Shan Extension (Tai Wai - Wu Kai Sai) TST Extension (Hung Hom - TST East) MTRC MTR Tsang Kwan O Extension (TKE) Penny Bay Extension Project (extension to Disney Land)
4 Traction & Power Potential Empolyers After meeting with KCRC, MTRC and L&E Co., they are in general supporting this stream, especially the term time project and placement. Potential employers not only include MTRC and KCRC, but also their consultants and contractors.
5 Objectives of the Stream Traction & Power Aim at teaching students the theories of advanced electric drives used in HK, Knowledge of power system specified to MTR (1500Vdc) and KCR (25kVac), and to their stations (ELV in BS area); Concept of Rolling Stock Maintenance and signaling/protection in local traction system.
6 Modules in Traction & Power There will be 7 modules related to this stream spanned in years 2 and 3. Electrical Machines (year 2) Electrical Power Systems and Installation (year 2) Electrical Engineering Principle (year 2) Electronics (year 2) Traction and Drives System (year 3) Project Management and Safety (year 3) Signaling and Protection in Traction System (year 3)
7 Electrical Machines (year 2) Syllabus DC Machines AC 3-phase Machines AC 1-phase Machines Transformer
