Medha at a Glance
Medha Servo Drives Pvt. Ltd., founded in 1984, is focused on rail transportation. Since inception, Medha has used Research and Development as a tool for success and today we are proud to be known for our product range, domain knowledge, design expertise, quality and manufacturing capabilities. Starting from humble beginning, over the last 35 years our company has grown to employ over 3200 talented people whose commitment has led to a sales revenue of INR 17.4 billion (approximately USD 250 million) for the year 2018-19, with the revenues growing at the rate of 27% year over year (CAGR) for the past ten years. Medha’s vision is to become world leader in railway products and to achieve this we specialise in three areas, Control Electronics, Power Electronics and safety critical Signalling.
We have designed and manufactured various world-class high-tech electronics products for application on locomotives, trainsets, coaches, railway stations and yards. We specialise in designing and engineering our products to withstand shock and vibration, wide temperature variations, and electrical disturbances that are typical of harsh locomotive environment. Our strength lies in designing, customising and integrating systems that involve multiple functional domains such as control electronics, power electronics, fail safety and mechanical construction.
In addition to Railway domain, Medha has now diversified its product portfolio to include Solar inverters, Electric Vehicle Propulsion Systems, and Avionics Systems. Medha Solar inverters are 3-Level, 3-phase inverters, which optimize the Grid Filter and limit the Harmonic currents in grid side. Medha Solar inverters work with wide MPP (Maximum Power Point) Tracking PV voltage range, due to which the overall energy generation is high. Medha's Solar inverter product range includes both String inverters and Central inverters ranging from 30 kW to 3500 kW. Recently Medha has completed development of electric propulsion system for Battery Electric Buses. Complete propulsion system including Vehicle control, Traction Inverter, Permanent Magnet Traction Motor, gearbox, Auxiliary converter and Battery charging station has been developed for new and retrofit bus applications.
Medha’s R&D Centre is 600 people strong and has all the infrastructure required for developing sophisticated products. Medha has also achieved CMMI Level 4 certification for well-defined design processes for new product development. We are working towards CMMI Level 5 certification by further improving our design processes.
