ROHR TURBOLINER ELECTRICAL CONTROL PANELS
The Rohr Turboliner is a gas turbine, mechanically driven unit train based on highly developed European technology. To adapt this technology to American practice and usage required a number of changes. One of these was conversion of the electrical systems from 380 VAC 50 Hz to 480 VAC 60 Hz and expansion of the control functions to meet specified requirements. This paper deals with the design and manufacture of six major control panels from development of the train functional schematic through production of the hardware.
