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.
