PASSENGER TRAIN EQUIPMENT REVIEW REPORT. VOLUME 1. ADVANCED PROPULSION SYSTEMS AND PROPULSION SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
Early in 1977, the Federal Railroad Administration, Office of Research and Development, initiated the improved Passenger Equipment Evaluation Program (IPEEP), which was designed as a detailed systematic review of advanced passenger trains and equipment throughout the world that could possibly be used in the United States. During the course of this program, the members of the IPEEP Train System Review Team prepared 24 technical papers, in addition to the basic set of IPEEP reposts covering baseline data and individual train reviews and a separate report on train performance methodology. This volume contains one paper giving a review of advanced passenger train propulsion systems and one paper identifying the requirements for passenger train propulsion systems.
