NEW CONVERTER DRIVE SYSTEM FOR A DIESEL ELECTRIC LOCOMOTIVE WITH ASYNCHRONOUS TRACTION MOTORS

A short explanation is given of the need to develop a new power transmission system in accordance with the general demands on the performance of a locomotive. The main components of an existing diesel electric locomotive, such as the alternator, converter, traction motors, and the whole control system are described in detail. Consideration is given to the interaction between the different components. Good operating experience has shown that the system was well chosen. For the future a uniform drive scheme for different power supplies appears realizable.
