N2 - Regenerating trains are now in common use on many DC fed railway systems, and train operating companies are able to get a discount on their energy costs if regeneration is active. The electrical energy consumption in a DC system is significant, and a comprehensive understanding of how regeneration affects the overall system energy consumption has not been developed.
