REGENERATION AND ASSURED RECEPTIVITY IN RAIL TRANSIT

Concern for energy conservation and reduced heat in the subway has caused increased interest in regeneration. However, receptivity of the distribution system to regenerated energy is questionable, leading to consideration of controlled wayside resistors to assure receptivity. The question was studied in terms of train operation, electrical network performance, ventilation and cooling system requirements, and present-worth economic analysis.
