HEAVY SHUNTING LOCOMOTIVES. CONVERTER TECHNIQUE FOR TRACTION ENGINES WITHOUT COLLECTOR

SCHWERE RANGIERLOKOMOTIVEN. UMRICHTERTECHNIK MIT KOLLEKTORLOSEN FAHRMOTOREN

An asynchronous motor, which provides certain advantages, can be used for the propulsion of railway vehicles in combination with impulse-controlled direct-alternating thyristor converters. The Swiss Federal Railways recently made use of this technique for the production series of heavy shunting locomotives. This article describes operating experiments and points out the limitations of the new technique at its present stage of development.
