Traction Generator Set for Supplying Power to Traction Motors

With a traction generator set, you can supply diesel-electric locomotives, traction vehicles, buses and hybrid vehicles with electrical power either continuously or in an emergency.

Traction generator sets supply electrical power to traction motors. You can use them either as an autonomous energy source or as an auxiliary generator set if overhead lines are defective or not available. This means you are not dependent on the infrastructure and can depend on a reliable power supply.

Our generator sets convert energy efficiently using the latest diesel motors from different manufacturers combined with Jenoptik generators and converters. All individual components are perfectly calibrated to one another. They are characterized by a high level of efficiency and power density, as well as an optimum mass balance. An output power of up to 3000 kW is possible at voltages of up to 3600 V DC or 2700 V AC.

You control the traction generator set via an electronic control unit. Various digital and analog interfaces enable easy communication and control. All the necessary protection, operating and monitoring components are included.

Our experts develop a traction generator set for you that is perfectly tailored to your requirements while meeting the relevant national and international standards. We can draw on many years of experience in numerous international projects to find the appropriate solution for any application, however demanding it may be.
