B-B and Bo-Bo are the Association of American Railroads (AAR) and British classifications of wheel arrangement for railway locomotives with four axles in two individual bogies.
In electronics, a chopper circuit is used to refer to numerous types of electronic switching devices and circuits used in power control and signal applications.
Direct current (DC) is the unidirectional flow of electric charge.
An electric locomotive is a locomotive powered by electricity from overhead lines, a third rail or on-board energy storage such as a battery or a supercapacitor.
E.403 is a class of electric locomotives to be used on fast freight trains by the Italian railway company FS Trenitalia.
A gate turn-off thyristor (GTO) is a special type of thyristor, which is a high-power semiconductor device.
An overhead line or overhead wire is used to transmit electrical energy to trams, trolleybuses or trains.
A pantograph (or "pan") is an apparatus mounted on the roof of an electric train, tram or electric bus to collect power through contact with an overhead line.
A power inverter, or inverter, is an electronic device or circuitry that changes direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC).
A rectifier is an electrical device that converts alternating current (AC), which periodically reverses direction, to direct current (DC), which flows in only one direction.
The train communication network (TCN) is a hierarchical combination of two fieldbus for data transmission within trains.
Trenitalia is the primary train operator in Italy.
Venezia Santa Lucia (Stazione di Venezia Santa Lucia) is the central station of Venice, northeast of Italy.
The volt (symbol: V) is the derived unit for electric potential, electric potential difference (voltage), and electromotive force.
A volt-ampere (VA) is the unit used for the apparent power in an electrical circuit, equal to the product of root-mean-square (RMS) voltage and RMS current.
25 kV alternating current electrification is commonly used in railway electrification systems worldwide, especially for high-speed rail.
