4,000 KW FAMILY OF SNCF LOCOMOTIVES FOR A. C. AND D. C. MAIN LINES

Continuous ratings vary from 4,400 kW to 4,600 kW according to the speed; all are designed for 180 km/h and axle loadings are 21. 2, 22. 3 and 22. 6 tons. All three classes incorporate important common assemblies, such as the bogies, traction motors, body frame and structures. Solid-state circuiting, including thyristors, provide the stepless adjustment of the traction motor voltage and field. Rectifier control is associated with automatic regulation to provide pre-set current, pre-set speed and automatic changeover to electric braking and selective motor wheel-spin protection.
