Transforming suburban transport

A train speeds out of a calm suburb and into the bustling city, opens its doors and releases hundreds of passengers onto the platform. Soon the doors close and power once again flows to the train through overhead lines, allowing it to accelerate rapidly to 60 km/h in a few seconds. Within a few kilometers the train decelerates and glides into yet another station to unload still more commuters. These events are repeated hour after hour, day after day, year after year. In cities around the world commuters rely on the high-performance of ABB traction transformers to reliably power their travel, quietly, and efficiently, while they prepare for another day at work.
