The use of squirrel cage motor for auxiliary loads in railroad applications makes it necessary to have a conversion system aboard the locomotive or the train. This system has to convert a 1-phase ac or a dc voltage into a 3-phase 50 or 60 Hz voltage. This paper presents solutions built on power electronics. Compared to rotating equipment the power electronic solution offers important advantages regarding...
