UTILITY SERVICE TO ELECTRIFIED RAILROADS

When limitations with respect to voltage unbalance and single-phase loading are observed, a railroad's single-phase load can be served without harmful effects to a utility system's generating or distribution equipment. Supply of power to mobile loads of an individual railroad at several different locations, in most cases by several utility companies, poses problems concerning rates, regulatory tariffs and legal obligations not previously encountered by American utilities. Railroads, utilities and government will have to face issues that include changes in operating techniques and new concepts of rate structures and contractual arrangements.
