RAPID TRANSIT TIME AND ENERGY REQUIREMENTS (ABRIDGMENT)

The results of an analysis to compare the trade-off between time and energy in the propulsion of a rapid transit train are discussed. Faster schedules consume more energy but reduce other operating costs and are an asset in attracting riders. Methods of reducing energy consumption, mainly by recovery of all or part of the kinetic energy used, are also described. (Author)
