TRANSFORMER: ABB has developed a traction transformer that uses power electronics to reduce size and weight while increasing energy efficiency.The Power Electronic Traction Transformer is based on multi-level converter topology that uses IGBT power semiconductors and medium-frequency transformers to replace the conventional transformer and inverter combination. The medium-frequency transformer also reduces noise levels. The pilot application of PETT is a 4500 kg unit with a nominal rating of 1·2 MW and short-term peak of 1·8 MW which has been fitted to a 15 kV 16·7 Hz Swiss Federal Railways Ee933 shunting locomotive used at Genève Cornavin station.‘The innovative use of power semiconductors in a core component such as traction transformers opens up new opportunities for rail markets around the world, and should be extendable across a range of other applications,’ according to Markus Heimbach, head of the Transformers business within ABB’s Power Products division. ‘In addition to its weight and size advantages, the new PETT helps improve efficiency and reduces noise levels.’

Samuel Chukwueze’s introduction turned the tide for Villarreal in their 5-1 victory over Real Betis on Friday. For 56 minutes, the Nigeria Super Eagles winger watched from the bench as the visitors kept the game at 1-1. Chukwueze came on in the second half and justified his nomination for Europe’s Golden Boy Award with a superlative performance that opened the flood gate of goals for the home side. The opposing defenders could not keep up with Chukwueze’s blistering runs and conceded three goals in quick succession before the year old added to the tally to make it 5-1 in the end. The youngster has been one of the standout revelations in world football in the 2019/20 season and was nominated on Thursday for the Europe Golden Boy award. Related
