THREE-PHASE DRIVES -- THE MANY ADVANTAGES WHICH PASSENGER URBAN TRANSIT CAN OBTAIN

The author shows that three-phase electric traction embodies among its advantages the squirrel-cage induction motor which has higher efficiency than the comparable dc machine. Thyristor control gives power variations, braking and speed/torque characteristics by varying the frequency. Experience data on three-phase induction traction motors are presented and new rapid transit vehicles are outlined.
