11th acrps conference 2023 | March 30 and 31, 2023
acrps 2023 digital participation
The 11th acrps will take place on March 30th and 31st, 2023.
acrps is thus celebrating its 20th anniversary.
The acrps is an international conference and the largest of its kind in the world specifically on the subject of AC traction power supply. It has been held every two years in Leipzig (DE) since 2003 and regularly attracts more than 500 experts from railway companies, infrastructure managers, the railway industry, consultants and authorities from Europe and beyond.
In 2021, the conference had to take place digitally for the first time due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The organizers hope that acrps 2023 will take place live as usual before the pandemic.
Digital participation is still possible.
The conference, in which both decision-makers and technical experts take part, serves on the one hand to communicate new trends and on the other hand to exchange ideas with each other.
Topics of the acrps 2023 will be:
• electrical railway energy supply systems
• overhead lines
• Charging infrastructure for battery multiple units
• Grounding and return
The topics are dealt with for railways with both AC 15 kV 16.7 Hz and AC 25 kV 50 Hz.
The lecture program will be completed by a panel discussion.
The conference language is German. Simultaneous translation into English will be provided, both on site and via live stream.
Review of the 10th acrps conference 2021
While speakers and moderators were mainly following the international conference on site, around 450 participants were able to use the live stream. 20 lectures were offered, which were already published this year or will be published as an essay in the eb.
Even if the conference, the live stream of which was also broadcast abroad in two languages, went without any technical problems, many participants wish that acrps 2023 can again take place as a face-to-face event. This is planned for March 30th and 31st, 2023.
