OBSERVATIONS ON ENERGY REGENERATION IN RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEMS

HE'AROT 'AL HEHZAYR ENERGIYA BE-MA'ARAKHOT LE'HASSA'A HAMONIT

Present-day electric train systems for rapid transit use single wagons following closely one another, not long trains, separated by great distances. Energy regeneration is therefore not produced by a single train moving down a grade and returning energy to the national network, but rather by the supply of braking energy from one wagon to another wagon that is accelerating nearby. The actual saving of energy will depend on adequate organization of the traffic time-table, which should ensure that when a wagon starts up, there should be another one nearby that is braking. The factors involved in energy regeneration are discussed and computation methods presented. Diagrams, curves, and equations complement survey.
