SOAC (STATE-OF-THE-ART CAR) DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM. VOLUME I. DESIGN, FABRICATION AND TEST

Design, fabrication and test of two new State-of-the-Art Cars (SOAC) whose objective is to demonstrate the current state-of-the-art in rail rapid transit vehicle technology were carried out. Passenger convenience and operating efficiency were primary goals. The SOAC features a DC-DC chopper in the propulsion system, separately excited DC traction motors, all-steel construction (with molded fiberglass ends), and vandal-resistant and fire-retardant materials in the interior. This volume, Volume 1 of a two-volume report, covers the development program through engineering testing; including data on design and performance, propulsion and braking, subsystems, test program, mockup and demonstration programs, and economic analysis.
