Outline of Toshiba’s winning products
1. Energy Storage System for Railway with SCiB™ - joint application with Toshiba Infrastructure Systems & Solutions Corporation
The Energy Storage System (ESS) with SCiB™, Toshiba’s rechargeable battery, charges and discharges regenerative power to provide safe and stable power supply to trains, especially during emergency power failures. A simple monitoring system is essential to ensure continuous operation of the ESS. This graphic user interface (GUI) with strong visual design offers just that by offering a clear, intuitive display of ESS operation. System status such as output power, battery status, fault information, and measured data are displayed in real-time and can be quickly grasped by the users.
