Inverter system for railway test facility supply successfully put into operation
In cooperation with the project partner Rail Power Systems GmbH, F&S has successfully commissioned the multi-system supply of a new test facility. Thus trainsets and locomotives can now be tested both at 15 kV / 16.7 Hz and 25 kV / 50 Hz. The heart of the system with a continuous output of 1 MW, for a short time 2 MW, is the modularly configurable F & S LC3 converter system. All components required for energy conversion - transformers, filters, power and control modules of the converter as well as cooling and auxiliary - were designed, configured and supplied by F&S. F&S´s proprietary control hardware SC1600 combined with the PM scalable power modules provide the flexibility and performance needed to meet the specific test requirements of this project.
