Main Propulsion Controller
The C151B trains is the fourth commuter type Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) made in Japan to feature electric systems fully manufactured by Fuji Electric. Propulsion is controlled by VVVF Inverter with 2-level IGBT semiconductor controller, rated at 415 kVA. Each inverter unit controls two motors on one bogie (1C2M), and one motor car features two of such units. Motors are three-phrase AC induction type, model MLR109, with a maximum output of 140 kW.
SMRT Active Route Map Information System
C151Bs went into service with STARIS installed.
The car numbers of the trains range from x601 to x690, where x depends on the carriage type.
- The first digit depends upon whether the car is the first, second or third car from the end of the train it is nearer to, where the first car has a 3, the second has a 1 and the third has a 2.
- The other 3 digits is the train identification number. A full length train of 6 cars have 2 different identification number, one for the first 3 cars, and the same number plus 1, for the other three. The smaller number is always at the front.
- For example, train 689/690 would consist of 6 cars with serial number 3689, 1689, 2689, 2690, 1690 and 3690 respectively.
- Depending on the direction of travel, the sequence may be reversed.
