Passenger service in the 200 to 300 km/h range demands high power transmission through lightly loaded axles to minimise track stresses. Maximum use of available adhesion can only be achieved through stepless variation of traction motor current by a control system that responds instantly to wheelspin, while the input from driver or a.t.o. system should be acceptable as a constant speed demand. Tore Nordin of ASEA points out that present thyristor converters meet these exacting requirements.
