Storage and Retrieval System: Energy Efficiency. The Siemens line module capable of energy recovery means  energy can be recovered and used by other loads. A braking resistor is not required, cabinet envelope dimensions are reduced and the cooling concept simplified. Energy is balanced via the common SINAMICS S120 DC link bus, resulting in the lowest total losses in the system. Further, this is a ready-to-use solution for reactive power compensation
