Power electronics improvements driven by sustainable directives
As in many other industries, a strong lobby towards a sustainable traction industry accelerates the further development of electrification and higher energy efficiency. When we look at what has been realized over the past 50 years in the field of traction drives, we can conclude that power electronics has enabled impressive improvements and will continue to do so.
Looking at the railway infrastructure, particularly the whole energy supply for rail tracks, we see possibilities to comply with the energy transition mode we are all facing!
In this case study our colleague Mr. Ben Tabak, Technical Manager, describes some of the improvements around power electronics in traction applications, driven by strong sustainability directives.
