Microprocessor is used for vehicle control, supervision of health and operations of all major components and diagnostics.

Power electronic traction drives have become increasingly more complex due to the developments of high power and high speed semiconductors (GTO, IGBT), microprocessor control and three phase inverter drives.

This has given the ability to operate 3 phase induction motor drives with electric traction multiple units and locomotives. the TCU. These signals are treated and sent to the traction control that sends signals to the module A10 Gate Unit (Tested).

GATE TURN OFF THYRISTOR (GTO) The Gate Turn off thyristor (GTO) is a semiconductor device that can be turn on and off by a gate signal. This semiconductor is capable to support currents in order of kV.

The magnitude of the gate current for turn off is of the order of one fifth to one third of the anode current, hence it is considerably higher than the turn-on magnitude. The time of turn off is shorter than with the other thyristors.

Thyristor basics Thyristor device structure Thyristor operation Gate turn off thyristor, GTO Thyristor specifications What is a triac Triac specifications Diac overview When choosing a thyristor or SCR, there are several datasheet parameters that need to be understood so that the correct device can be selected.

The RCT is designed mainly for specific applications such as traction drives. The antiparallel diode limits the reverse voltage across the thyristor to 1 to 2 V.

Also, because of the reverse recovery behavior of the diodes, the thyristor may see very high reapplied dv/dt when the diode recovers from its reverse volt- age.

Some of the large SCRs (like 6 inches across) to achieve the max dI/dt rating can take up to 10 amps on the initial leading edge, then drop to 1 amp for the back porch. systems have been produced for motor drives in Japan. The emergence of many kinds of power semiconductors and the digital control technology such as the use of microprocessor, made it possible to realize epoch-making products.

In this paper, the year history of power electronics for drive systems in Japan is summarized. The GTO block implements a macro model of a real GTO thyristor.

It does not take into account either the geometry of the device or the underlying physical processes of the device [1]. The GTO block requires a continuous application of the gate signal (g > 0) in order to be in the on state (with Iak > 0).

Types of thyristors. Somewhat simplified, that's the crux of how a thyristor works. There are numerous variations, including gate-turn off (GTO) devices (that can be turned on or off by the action of the gate), AGT (anode gate thyristor) devices that have a gate going to the internal n-type layer near the anode (instead of the p-type layer near the cathode), photoelectric thyristors in which.

The GTO thyristor achieves this by "chopping" the supply voltage in order to drive a sinusoidal current in the motor windings (pulse width modulation), creating the characteristic whine associated with the stock and with the Class Networker trains that share its traction drive system.

The sound changes as the pulse length changes. PLCs and computers can be employed to automatically control the drive operations in a desired sequence. Drives are available in wide range of speed, power and torque. Control gear required for speed control, starting and braking is usually simple and easy to operate.
