THREE-PHASE PROPULSION IN DIESEL AND ELECTRIC LOCOMOTIVES FOR HEAVY FREIGHT AND FAST PASSENGER SERVICE
The development, prototype testing and design for production of diesel and electric locomotives with three-phase alternating current traction motors are described. The asynchronous motor, the solid-state inverter for supplying the motor, and efficiency of the electrical power conditioning system are discussed. Applications of the 35 three-phase locomotives built or on order are explained.
