ENGINEERING TESTS FOR ENERGY STORAGE CARS AT THE TRANSPORTATION TEST CENTER. VOLUME IV. RIDE ROUGHNESS TESTS

The primary purpose of the tests documented herein was to demonstrate the principles and feasibility of an energy storage type propulsion system, and its adaptability to an energy storage type propulsion system, and its adaptability to an existing car design. The test program comprised four phases of tests on two New York City Transit Authority R-32 cars where the conventional propulsion system was replaced by an energy storage system. The four test phases were: verification of safe arrival, debugging procedures, performance verification tests, and expanded test program.
