A THREE-PHASE CURRENT TEST VEHICLE-THE DE 2500 AND A CONTROL VEHICLE. TESTS ON A THREE-PHASE CURRENT TRACTION SYSTEM WITH 15 KV 16 2/3 HZ POWER SUPPLY

DREHSTROMVERSUCHFAHRZEUG - DE 2500 MIT STEUERWAGEN SYSTEMERPROBUNG EINES DREHSTROMANTRIEBES AN 15 KV 16 2/3 HZ

The system is made up of a control vehicle and a diesel locomotive. The control vehicle is equipped with a transformer, coils, the input convertor, induction circuit and auxiliary equipment. In the diesel locomotive, the cooling equipment, synchronous alternator and rectifier have been removed and replaced by ballast, an a.c. - d.c. convertor and electronic equipment. A fairly smooth direct current is produced by phase displacement of the two rectifiers in a bridge arrangement. A three-phase current convertor is used to transform direct current to alternating current of variable amplitude and frequency for the asynchronous traction motors. This system makes it possible to obtain a 0.98 power factor over a larger part of the system.
