LIGHT RAIL/RAPID TRANSIT: NEW APPROACHES FOR THE EVALUATION OF ENERGY SAVINGS -- 2. ON THE RECEPTIVITY OF A TRANSIT SYSTEM

New approaches are presented for the determination and evaluation of regeneration in large transit systems. A specific definition of the receptivity of transit systems to available regenerative braking energy is presented, and the analytical base for receptivity evaluations is developed. Also described is the construction of a transit system operational model. This operational model is the mechanism by which the values required for the receptivity analysis are generated.
