Portuguese term or phrase: resistores de potencia
are these "power resistors"? (train terminology) I'm not sure I've come across them before!
Thanks, Bear. (promise to award some points when I get a breather!)

Chopper Control
A development in electric traction control which eliminates the need for power resistors by causing the voltage to the traction motors to be switched on and off (chopped) very rapidly during acceleration. It is accomplished by the use of thyristors and will give up to 20% improvement in efficiency over conventional resistance control.

agree  taranti: This is the term I have always seen for "resistores". Actually, the question is probably referring to high power resistors (>1W).
