Traction transformers for high-speed trains

The high-speed rail sector is undergoing huge and rapid growth. Hitachi Energy draws on considerable experience in designing and manufacturing transformers for high-speed trains.

Hitachi Energy is supplying traction transformers for the high-speed trains manufactured by Alstom, AnsaldoBreda, Bombardier, CAF, Ministry of Railways China, Siemens Mobility, and Talgo.

The total weight of the transformers is a factor of crucial importance in very high-speed trains where every kilo counts. By incorporating a number of design innovations like multi-purpose components such as winding and lightweight materials, Hitachi Energy has reduced the total weight of the transformers. For instance, Hitachi Energy winding enables the train to use both DC and AC systems without adding extra weight.
