DEVELOPMENT AND USE OF CURRENT CHOPPERS IN ELECTRIC TRACTION

The paper describes the chopper type traction and braking equipment manufactured by Jeumont-Schneider and used on French National Railways and its properties. Its performance is compared with that of conventional equipment and it is shown that the chopper also has some properties of its own which have no parallel. The operational principles where the chopper is represented by a change-over switch and circuit characteristics are described.
