About traction transformers

One of the most vital components of a rolling stock is a traction transformer. It forms the most integral part of an electric traction system and helps in the smooth movement of motors such as locomotives, high-speed trains, and trams. For over a century now, these transformers have been used for traction in railways. It is considered to be the best alternative to conventional fossil-fuel based traction systems. It comes with various mounting options such as:
  • On-board
  • Undercarriage
  • Rooftop
The traction systems can be broadly segmented into:
  • AC systems
  • DC systems
Typical system setups are:
  • 25 kV AC 50 Hz
  • 15 kV AC 16 2/3 Hz
  • 3 kV DC
  • 1.5 kV DC
  • 1.2 kV DC
These traction systems may have a combination of stationary transformers, auto transformers, and booster transformers. Traction transformers are used to bring down the voltage of the overhead electric line from 15/25 kV to the desired voltage of 0.7/1.5 kV. Traction transformers are mainly used in high-speed trains, EMUs, electric locomotives, and trams. Traction transformers can be customized as per the end-users' requirements.
