The near instantaneous response of thyristors makes it unnecessary to select motors and control schemes having a steep tractive effort/speed characteristic. With thyristors the aim should be to regulate motor current directly, rather than as a function of voltage across the terminals. No longer is it necessary or even desirable to connect motors in parallel. Each motor should have its own thyristor or chopper circuits for maximum adhesion and reliability.
