Traction motors are AC or DC electric motors that provide power to drive locomotives. Further, these motors offer high durability and deliver robust performance, owing to high power and superior mechanical susceptibility of heavy payloads. . The traction motors require high power to deliver the torque required to move the wheels, resulting in compact designs, efficient power-to-weight rations, and efficient cooling of the traction motors. Thus, torque motors have minimum torque ripple, reduced noise & vibrations, higher efficiency, and efficient cooling capabilities through open or forced ventilation.
The growth of the global traction motor market is driven by volumetric surge in the transportation sector and the introduction of new vehicles, which are equipped with latest technologies. Moreover, increase in the requirement for advanced transports globally has led to the development and production of better and efficient traction system.
