What is EOG??(Detailed answer--akin to 10 marks Question...!)
End on Generation (EOG) is the system used on fully air conditioned Rajdhani and Shatabdi trains. The system comprises two power cars per train. Each power car has two DG sets and each DG set is rated at 300 kW. These are mounted inside the power car or the entire power car coach which is dedicated for these power plants. The power generated by these DG sets is utilized for hotel load of the train.
According to estimates EOG concepts bring in multiple advantages to
railways and release hauling capacity of locomotives while saving energy efficiency by over 90%.
Release of traction hauled loads can improve average speed of coaches. EOG concept eliminates axle mounted generator and corresponding battery bank and inverter on each coach and replace it with one unit of DG set under the SLR.
