Propulsion and Control systems for electric units
Škoda Electric provides complete propulsion equipment for Electric Multiple Units which can be used for different AC and DC centenary voltages. The AC traction inverters are based on high voltage IBGT technology.
Due to the modular solution, the electric equipment can be easily adapted to the special demands of the Operators. The EMUs can be two, three or more cars train-sets with single or double propulsion system on the motorcars.
The trains have high efficient brake energy recuperation capability on both DC and AC networks. The EQ input converter provides high power quality in case of AC overhead line under all operational conditions as well as the integrated brake rheostat in able to absorb all brake energy if there is no other consumer on the line in case of operation from DC network.
The propulsion equipment can be installed either on the roof or under the floor depending on the customer´s requirements.
