Rail Bulb Replacement

The scope of this project is to develop a modern Railway signaling system using LED technology to replace the old system employing incandescent bulb. We propose a novel design and control to avoid using low-lifetime components as the existing commercial systems. The current and voltage monitoring functionalities are added to detect exactly which LED that fault occurs, it helps to maintain system and easily adjust light intensity efficiently. As a result, the designed system will have high efficiency, high input electrical quality and high reliability to ensure continuous operation without disturbance. This research is a gold key for GE Lighting to remain the leader in their railway signaling market.
