MEANS TO ACHIEVE HIGH REGENERATION CAPABILITY IN A MODERN CHOPPER PROPULSION SYSTEM

The chopper technique has now been used in mass transit propulsion systems for approximately ten years. Literature is abundant with articles about chopper theory, principles and features, and therefore these generalities will not be dealt with further here. This paper concentrates on the regeneration issue, partly through an analysis of the line receptivity and how the external factors, the feeding network, affect the result, but chiefly by discussing the implications of various solutions used in the propulsion package, and what measures can be taken to improve the regeneration figure, based on the experience in Sweden and elsewhere. The presentation is accompanied by calculations and results from underground and streetcar services.
