COMPARISON BETWEEN TYPES OF TRACTION ON METRO SYSTEMS IN RELATION TO ENERGY CONSUMPTION

CONFRONTO FRA SISTEMI DI TRAZIONE PER FERROVIE METROPOLITANE NEI RIGUARDI DEL CONSUMO DI ENERGIA

One of the main causes of electrical energy loss in railway traction is transformation into heat during braking. Because of this, the author compares two conventional braking systems, dynamic and regenerative, with a new type of traction and braking involving the use of kinetic energy and gravitation. He sets out arguments to support the latter notion and expresses the hope that more studies will be conducted on this subject.
