WCAM is the dual-power AC/DC series locomotive used by Indian
Railways. These locomotives can run under both DC traction and AC
traction. All the WCAM locos were made by BHEL. They have 750V DC
traction motors, using resistance banks in DC mode and a variable
ratio auto-transformer with rectifier units in AC mode, for power
control. The WCAM class locomotives are in service only in the
Mumbai region. The dual-voltage WCAM series locomotives haul
intercity trains out of Mumbai DC suburban region which is still on
a 1500V DC overhead system, as opposed to other parts of India
which have 25000 V AC overhead.
