AVERAGE POWER LOCOMOTIVES WITH A 3-PHASE TRACTION CURRENT SYSTEM

LOKOMOTIVEN DER MITTLEREN LEISTUNGSKLASSE MIT DREHSTROMANTRIEBSTECHNIK

The first locomotive operated with the 3-phase traction technique was presented in Graz in 1971. Since then, more than 240 locotives using the BBC technology have been delivered, ordered or taken on option. Most of them have been built with standard components in the average power category, some are diesel vehicles and others are a.c. or d.c. powered. Since 1971, the output of thyristors and power electronics has been developed. Apart from describing this development, the author presents four examples of locomotives in detail.
