ELECTRIC TECHNOLOGY FOR URBAN RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEMS

ELEKTROTECHNIK FUER S-BAHNEN

Urban rapid transit systems are characterized by such quality factors as rigid timetables, short intervals between two stops and high speed. Electrical engineering with its application fields, electric drives and controls, energy supply, protection of train running and train control has contributed most towards realizing these goals. The role of electrical engineering in this field in the past as well as in the future is discussed.
