The three-phase a-c traction motor, lighter and lower maintenance than the traditional d-c traction motor in railway applications, has been made possible by solid-state power coversion systems.

Two short articles describe experimental drives installed by Siemens in a Nurnberg tramcar and by Oy Stromberg in three two-car prototype transit vehicles in the Helsinki Metro.
