THREE PHASE TRACTION FOR HIGH SPEED PASSENGER SERVICE ON NEC. LETTER REPORT 19.
Configurations of multiple-unit trains for the Northeast Corridor having AC induction traction motors but capable of matching improved Metroliners with DC motors are investigated. Economics and performance of the independent car, married pair and three-car set are investigated; each such configuration would have only half as many motors as existing Metroliners.
