SERIES RM: THE FIRST THYRISTOR LOCOMOTIVE ON THE MINING RAILWAY LINE FROM KIRUNA TO NARVIK

BAUREIHE RM: DIE ERSTE THYRISTORLOKOMOTIVE AUF DER ERZBAHN KIRUNA-NARVIK

Using the thyristor technique and stepless control, better adhesion and automatic control can be obtained. Special anti-skid adjustments can give an increase of some 30 percent in adhesion. The constant secondary voltage from the transformer is sent to converter points to be rectified. In the motor field circuit there are two semi-controlled series-switched converter bridges. The locomotive is fitted with a rheostatic brake.
