Railway applications - Electric traction - Short-primary type linear induction motors (LIM) fed by power converters
|Publication Date:||1 June 2012|
|ICS Code (Railway rolling stock):||45.060|
This International standard applies to short-primary type linear induction motors (LIM) for propelling rail and road vehicles.
This standard applies to a specific configuration of LIM that has the primary mounted on either the vehicle body or trucks and a secondary that is fixed to the track and that is connected only by a magnetic field with the primary.
The object of this standard is to allow the performance of a LIM to be confirmed by tests and to provide a basis for assessment of its suitability for a specified duty.
The rating of LIMs fed in parallel by a common converter should take into account the effect on load-sharing due to differences of gap length and of LIM characteristics. The user should be informed of the maximum permissible difference in gap length for the particular application.
The electrical input to LIMs covered by this standard should come from an electronic converter.
NOTE At the time of drafting, only the following combination of LIMs and converters had been used for traction applications, but it may also apply to other combinations which may be used in the future:
- LIMs fed by voltage source converters.
