Future of Electric Railways: Advanced Electrification Systems with Static Converters for ac Railways

Abstract

Railways are a vital part of the world economy, transporting both goods and passengers. Freight trains transport large quantities of goods, whereas high-speed trains are the fastest land passenger systems. At present, the majority of rail networks across the world are nonelectrified. They run diesel-powered trains that require refueling stations and produce… (More)
