THREE-PHASE CURRENT PROPULSION WITH SQUIRREL-CAGE WINDING CONVERTORS FOR RAIL VEHICLES

DREHSTROMANTRIEB MIT STROMZWISCHENKREISUMRICHTER FUER BAHNFAHRZEUGE

Developments in electronics have made it possible to build converters for use with three-phase current propulsion. Converters with a squirrel-cage winding are particularly advantageous, because they can be easily adopted to the power supply network by using the appropriate connection. Phase series static inverters with 6 thyristors, 6 diodes and 6 condensers are the simplest type of converter. They have a continuous rating of 900 kW when air-cooled. Appropriate values for the economic viability of static converters are given for several applications.
