Traction systems and converters

CAF Power & Automation designs and develops traction converters for direct and alternating current.

The traction converter, a key element in the traction equipment is an in-house design based on the latest IGBT and control technology with voltage and frequency modulation and optimum energy performance and high reliability.

CAF Power & Automation supplies “turnkey" solutions, that know-how that allows specifying to the greatest detail: filter inductors, brake resistors and traction motors tailored for each application, with integration of these in the traction chain so that they are combined with the traction converter for an optimum electrical set-up.

Our converters are mounted on railway systems over the world, from locomotives, to tramways and EMUs. These converters are designed both for new vehicles and for ones already in service, and they can be fully integrated into the COSMOS control system.
