INPUT CHARACTERISTICS OF NATURALLY COMMUTATED SINGLE-PHASE ASYMMETRICAL CONVERTORS

Thyristor control is increasingly being used for voltage control on ac-supplied traction vehicles. Although such equipment improves the traction performance, it also introduces disturbances into lineside signalling and telephone circuits. The input characteristics of single-bridge and multi-bridge asymmetrical converter circuits are defined. Using the equations developed, the harmonic spectrum of the traction current can be predicted and subsequently used for noise and disturbance calculations.
