This paper deals with single-phase current-source active rectifier (CSAR) dedicated for retrofitting of older types of dc machine locomotives and also for the new generation of traction converters employing medium-frequency transformer. A summary of main tasks of the converter operation and proposed solutions will be presented in this paper. Required CSAR… CONTINUE READING
