New electrically propelled passenger trains use AC propulsion with induction traction motors and variable voltage, variable frequency drives. Benefits include higher performance, reduced starting energy use, regenerated braking energy, lower maintenance, and a broadened range of operating conditions. However, some transit operators have found that new… CONTINUE READING
