Resistors dissipate the electric power during vehicle braking, limit inrush current, or protect the other electrical components against overvoltages. They can be cooled naturally or with one or more motorfans.

Standard IEC60322 applies as a reference for rolling-stock resistor design.

Performance and cost are strongly related to active material and geometry.
