Electric power systems for guided vehicles with speeds above 200 mi/h were investigated. Particular attention was paid to a high-speed steel wheel-driven train which has a cruise capability of 200 mi/h. Alternate propulsion, power conditioning, and power distribution systems were evaluated, and economically acceptable solutions were highlighted. The… CONTINUE READING
