Meeting Rail Equipment Power Challenges with Wide-Input Modular DC-DC Converters
DC-DC converters used in onboard rail applications must meet challenging electrical supply and environmental specifications. The widespread adoption of the European Train Control System (ETCS) at the heart of the European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) is setting new, more stringent requirements for power conversion devices. In this article, Christian Jonglas at GAIA Converter, examines how the latest DC-DC power architectures can meet the needs of rapidly- evolving railway infrastructure.
