ENGINEERING TESTS FOR ENERGY STORAGE CARS AT THE TRANSPORTATION TEST CENTER. VOLUME II. PERFORMANCE POWER CONSUMPTION AND RADIO FREQUENCY INTERFERENCE 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 existing car design. The test program comprised four phases of tests on two New York City Transit Authority R-32 cars where 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. This report contains test data collected during the performance verification and expanded test program phases.
