APPLICATION OF A THREE-PHASE AC DRIVE SYSTEM TO ROLLING STOCK
The use of three-phase AC drive technology in railcars fed by inverters constitutes a system that successfully exploits the special characteristics of this method of control, and is being widely adopted for rolling stock throughout the world. The article introduces the special considerations affecting its application to railcar propulsion and the control system used. It goes on to introduce the simulation techniques used for design support and the performance-testing facilities. The article also covers the history of the development of Mitsubishi Electric's three-phase AC drive system and describes newly developed inverter equipment for 750 and 1,500VDC.
