JSC "Riga Electric Machine Building Works" Starts Implementation of Research 1.29
Since December 2013 JSC "Riga Electric Machine Building Works" (JSC "Rīgas elektromašīnbūves rūpnīca", JSC "RER") has been starting implementation of Research 1.29 "Designing and Testing Asynchronous Traction Drive Electric Motor System of Capacity up to 180 kW’ in the frames of the Project "Establishment of Machine Building Competence Centre", for which "TRANSPORT MAŠĪNBŪVES KOMPETENCES CENTRS’’ Ltd (Transport Machine Building Competence Centre) and State Agency "Latvijas Investīciju un attīstības aģentūra” (Latvian Agency of Investments and Development) concluded Contract No. L-KC-11-0002 on April 6, 2011.
The research target is development designing of asynchronous traction drive equipment up to 180 kW and management system, which are intended for permanent connection metro trains.
The set will be applied in trains used in subways that have the maximum speed of 100 km/h as well they are able move in open sections of way up to time period of 40 minutes.
