EFFECT OF CONSTANT POWER TRACTION ON TRANSIT ELECTRIFICATION DESIGN
Modern transit vehicles with electronic feedback speed and torque control may have vehicle power demands which are independent of third rail voltage. Compared to the linear character of resistance controlled vehicles the constant power feature can have a dramatic effect on third rail voltage drop and substation power ratings.
