BASIC CRITERIA FOR THE DESIGN OF ELECTRIC MOTIVE POWER UNITS WITH ASYNCHRONOUS TRACTION MOTORS

Induction motors for rail traction failed in the past because the conversion equipment was unsuitable. With semiconductor converters, induction motors have become a realistic proposition. The induction motor produces more torque than the commutator motor, in the same space. The ancillary equipment and reaction of the motors on the supply system are discussed. Up to 0.96 power factor (at full load) can be achieved.
