Dear Ladies and Gentleman,
Registration for dcrps 2022 is open for you from September 1st, 2021!
With around 450 participants and strong international participation the first dcrps took place successfully in January 2020. It was immediately the largest conference of its kind. There was no
doubt that the conference will be repeated alternating with the acrps, the sister event for AC railways, which has been held every two years since 2003.
DC railways are used in different systems around the world since more than hundred years. They have played a crucial role since the introduction of electric traction. These include long-distance trains, light rail systems and metros, as well as trams and trolleybuses. The desire to use electrical traction for buses or for road-bound freight transport has resulted in new applications for components of the DC rail power supply and interfaces in the power supply of the various systems. The dcrps conference offers the opportunity to accompany this development.
The aim of the conference is not only to impart knowledge, but also to build and maintain networks. Users, developers, suppliers, certifiers and decision-makers meet. The wide range of subjects offers everyone a view beyond the boundaries of day-to-day business. Sometimes solutions for challenges emerge that have not been seen or considered before. The railway industry has the opportunity to report on new products, users on first experiences. The focus is also on experiences in other countries.
Over 95% of the participants in the dcrps conference 2020 rated the content and organization of the conference as “good” and “very good”. The dcrps will build on this in 2022.
This time too, the conference program had to be compiled from an oversupply of presentation topics. The program is intended to take into account the diversity of the DC rail power supply.
