ELECTRIC TRACTION MOTORS FOR HIGH CAPACITIES AND SPEEDS

MOTEURS ELECTRIQUES DE TRACTION POUR PUISSANCES ET VITESSES ELEVEES

After having summed up the recent evolution which has made it possible to reach and even to exceed the limit of 200 km/h, the author examines the types of electric rotating motors which may be envisaged for rail propulsion at a higher speed, notably the induction motor and the dc motor. He then summarizes the solutions applied in this field and more especially, dwells on very high speed propelling units. The results already obtained with one of these: the TGV 001 experimental train-set with gas turbine and electric drive, enable him to draw a very positive conclusion as regards the future of high speed rail propulsion.
