LINEAR INDUCTION MOTOR RESEARCH: DATA ACQUISITION, DATA ANALYSES, AND LOW-SPEED TESTING. VOLUME III

A 2500-hp linear induction motor (LIM), a complete test vehicle, a propulsion control system, test instrumentation, and an onboard auxiliary power supply have been designed, fabricated, and checked out. The system was designed to operate at test speeds up to 250 mph on a standard-gauge railroad track bed fitted with an aluminum reaction rail (secondary member), at the Office of High Speed Ground Transportation Test Center, Pueblo, Colorado. Design criteria and supporting data for configuring the system are presented. Volume 3 documents the low-speed checkout tests conducted at Torrance, California, and describes the data acquisition and analysis systems developed for these tests. (Modified author abstract)
