MULTIPLE CAR PERFORMANCE, AC PROPULSION PROJECT
In 1971 the Cleveland Transit System received a grant contract from the Department of Transportation's Urban Mass Transportation Administration to test, demonstrate and evaluate a solid state AC propulsion system on three rapid transit cars (Project OH-06-0006). The AC propulsion system was developed by the Westinghouse Air Brake Division, Westinghouse Air Brake Company (WABCO), Wilmerding, Pa. This report is one of a series on various aspects of the project. To demonstrate general performance and applicability of the propulsion system, an on-board computer controlled data acquisition system was used to collect performance data. The data were reduced, analyzed, and plotted by computer. This report presents the performance data collected during the multiple car operation. The general performance characteristics are displayed by means of graphs plotted by computer from the raw data. Detailed discriptions of the data system and single car performance results are reported separately in UMTA-OH-06-0006-73-1 and UMTA-OH-06-0006-73-3 respectively.
