SINGLE CAR PERFORMANCE. AC PROPULSION PROJECT

The report presents the testing, demonstration and evaluation of a solid state AC propulsion system on three rapid transit cars. To demonstrate general performance and applicability of the propulsion system, an on-board computer controlled data acquisition system was used to collect performance data. The data were reduced, analyzed, and plotted by computer. The description of the general performance characteristics of the propulsion system is presented in the form of tabular listings and graphs. Some of the areas covered include rolling resistance, acceleration and braking capability, torque output, power consumption, system efficiency, and motor temperatures.
