Summary
This book presents a thorough survey of electric railway development from the earliest days of the London Underground to modern electrified main line trains. Coverage includes chapters on signaling and communications, power supplies, and a detailed survey about traction systems, both AC and DC. The introduction, first of mercury arc rectifiers, and later of power semiconductor controls, is also discussed in detail. The author has a long standing interest in engineering history and has written many papers on aspects of railway technology. This book will be of particular interest to scientists a
