New Delhi: Delhi Division of Northern Railway has introduced a new optimal light control system for conservation of energy which would save the railways about Rs 42 lakh a year.
The optimal light control system (OLCS), a state of the art system, is primarily aimed at conservation of electrical energy, said a Delhi Division official.
He said it is a cost efficient system, giving a recurring saving amounting to a total of Rs 41.37 lakh a year.
The system is designed for lighting applications by employing various techniques for saving electricity without compromising on the effective luminosity of an area.
The system employs microprocessor based low-loss impedance coil/transformer in the circuit, which reduces the running current and voltage at an optimum level without affecting other parameters.
According to the official, the system has been developed at a cost of Rs 67 lakhs, under the patronage of United Nations Development Programme.
65 High Mast Towers have been provided with 10 KVA OLCS over Delhi Division.
