PROCEEDINGS OF THE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ADVANCED PROPULSION SYSTEMS FOR URBAN RAIL VEHICLES, HELD AT WASHINGTON, DC. ON FEBRUARY 5-6, 1980

This conference proceedings report reflects the view that (on the basis of current R&D activities in the area of propulsion system designs) advances in control systems, motor design, thermal control techniques, diagnostics and energy efficient systems are realizable. The conference was structured to serve as a forum for the exchange of information among the various international organizations shaping the future of the industry. This conference report contains the papers prepared by experts around the world--Brazil, Finland, France, Germany, Japan, Sweden, United Kingdom, and the United States. The papers were jointly authored by propulsion equipment manufacturers and transit authority personnel to present both designer and user viewpoints toward the propulsion technology. This approach has emphasized the experience of propulsion equipment in the transit environment and presented its effects on transit system performance.
