EVALUATION OF THE WABCO AC PROPULSION SYSTEM. VOLUME 2. RELATED REPORTS AND EXHIBITS

In 1971, the Cleveland Transit System received a grant contract from UMTA to test, demonstrate, and evaluate a WABCO solid state AC propulsion system on three rapid transit cars (Project OH-06-0006). The independent evaluation was performed by Transportation and Environmental Operations, TRW, Inc. Redondo Beach, Calif. This is the final project report. Measurements of wheel wear, window safety glazing, ride quality, and passenger reaction to the restyled car interiors and new AC propulsion system are discussed. Contents of this report are: experimental design description for the CTS/WABCO AC propulsion demonstration program; instrumentation assessment, AC propulsion project; life cycle cost analysis plan for the Cleveland Transit System AC propelled cars; passenger reaction to AC propelled restyled rapid transit cars; evaluation of safety glazing; survey of Cleveland Transit System rapid transit maintenance procedures and facilities; and, telephone influence factor measurements.
