Railway remote signal control station.

Qnergy’s Smartgen power solution is specifically designed to
provide seamless and extremely reliable power generation to
remote locations. With multiple configurable and controllable
outputs, the Smartgen was programmed to output 240Vac
(single-phase) electric power to provide charging services to
a BNSF Signal Control room. Its smart logic was programmed
to only initiate generation when extra electricity was needed
beyond that which was being produced by the parallel solar
and wind resources.

Results
The Smartgen was installed and commissioned in June 2017 at a remote site in Eastern Washington State. It was
placed adjacent to the Signal Control station and is fueled by propane. Electrically, it is coupled directly to the
control room electrical panel with a standard single-phase 4-conductor cable carrying the 240 VAC / 60 Hz.

Introduction
BNSF Railway, created through the merger of Burlington
Northern Inc. and Santa Fe Pacific Corp., builds on the traditions
of hundreds of predecessors and provides customers with
efficient, reliable and cost-effective transportation services.
BNSF serves over 32,500 route miles in the western twothirds
of the United States, portions of Canada and key South
American gateways. Many of these routes wind their way
through the most remote parts of North America. Providing
continuous reliable electrical power to the farthest reaches of
their routes is critical for the ongoing control and monitoring
of their transportation assets.
