INGETEAM WILL INCREASE IN THE NEXT MONTHS, ITS CAPACITY TO CARRY OUT TRACTION SYSTEM TESTS ON ITS FACILITIES.
Since inaugurated, the Company has developed tests on different traction systems based on INGETRAC power converters.
Those operations require from all the elements of the traction chain and a cooling unit, that are installed on a specially-purposed facility.
The traction system test is required by IEC 61377-1 and also delivers inputs from the traction chain behaviour:
Traction system behavior on real traction & braking conditions.
Validation of control algorithms,
Modulation / Transformer & Motor Models / Protections/ Noise Behavior.
Validation of protections, diagnosis system & ”fail safe”.
Absolute limits of traction chain components.
