APPLICATION OF THYRISTORS IN RAILWAY TECHNOLOGY: CONSEQUENCES AND REMEDIES. PART IV--FINAL CONSIDERATIONS. COMPARISON OF ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES
The present report gives an overall assessment of the problem area and describes the advantages and disadvantages arising therefrom. Furthermore, a brief description is given of the possible measures to obtain adequate electromagnetic compatibility and recommendations are made as regards future work. The different thyristor used on traction vehicles are compared with conventional tractive vehicle electrics as to their advantages in various aspects in two tables, one each for a.c. traction and d.c. traction. Many references to other documents published by the Committee are given in the text and the tables, where the corresponding problems were dealt with in greater detail. The Appendix to this report is a draft for a UIC leaflet about "measures for the prevention of interference with signal engineering installations."
