THREE-PHASE DRIVE TECHNOLOGY FOR RAPID TRANSIT RAILROADS

DREHSTROMANTRIEBSTECHNIK FUER NAHVERKEHRSBAHNEN

The development of power electronics and inverters has made it possible to use three-phase asynchronous motors as traction motors for electric railroads. The advantages which result from this technique for tractive units of rapid transit systems are pointed out. It is reported that the German industry has fitted some prototype vehicles with asynchronous motors. Two different inverter methods, the current dc link converter and the pulse width modulation converter, have been used. Three-phase current drive equipment for rapid transit has been constructed, based on experience gained from prototype vehicles.
