Chosen issues of the power supply selection for electronic safety systems used in transport

Mirosław Siergiejczyk , Jacek Paś , Adam Rosiński


The safety of transport facilities depends not only on effectiveness of the applied individual safety systems but also on their power supply systems’ proper operation (also including electromagnetic interferences). Therefore, in this paper, the authors analysed the power supply selection for the electronic safety systems applied in transport, taking into account the reliability and exploitation requirements included in the regulations and standards on these systems. The appropriate electricity supply to electric safety systems is the basis of their proper functioning. It means that the power supply, with required parameters for a given device, should be connected to individual electric receivers of electric safety systems. However, only supplying electricity to the device is not equivalent to provision of its operation continuity and the appropriate level of values of the reliability and exploitation indices. Therefore, emergency power supply systems should be used. The authors developed an algorithm of the power supply selection for electronic safety systems, including the categories of power and hazards occurring in the facility. In further considerations, it is planned to carry out further analyses taking into account other types of power supply systems, and the development of a computer programme, which constitutes an exemplification of the obtained deliberations.
