TEN YEARS OF THE BBC DIRECT DC CONVERTOR FOR SHORT-DISTANCE VEHICLES

This article describes some of the experience gained from the purposeful use of available technologies, and then describes the present direct dc convertor technology situation, with special emphasis on single-pulse convertor elements as part of the traction equipment for short-distance vehicles. Studies and tests on the first deliveries resulted in a basis being established for all further activities in this sphere. The low-loss, stepless convertors led without exception to improved utilization of the vehicles as a result of increased transport speed, while at the same time consuming considerably less energy.
