Electric Traction

Excerpt from Electric Traction The Engineering Of Electric Traction has already thrown that of Electric Lighting into the shade, and yet the development of Electric Railways has only just begun. When it has reached only the earliest stage of vigorous adolescence, it will be found to bring in its train a great further development of Electric Tramways, because then there will be recognized the fact that one of the great functions of Tramways is to act as feeders to Railways and the present antagonism between Railways and Tramways will have died out. The progress of invention in electrical engineering is now so rapid, and especially so in regard both to Tramways and Railways, that it is hard to keep a treatise upon any electrical subject fully up to date. But in the production of this book the publishers have co-operated with the author in much effort to make it fully representative of the most recent practice right up to the date of publication. This would have been impossible except for the kind assistance in supplying the latest information and designs very generously given by numerous tramway and railway managers, chief engineers, and manufacturers. The author desires to offer his best thanks to all who have helped him in this way; and trusts that even the electrical engineer and manager of experience and detailed knowledge may find some convenience in the book, in that it collects within small bulk a large amount of scattered information in respect of at least the most practically important features of Electric Traction. The book, however, is mainly written in the hope that it may be useful in the instruction of students of technical electrical engineering. It keeps strictly to its subject of traction and leaves entirely to other treatises all explanations of electrical machinery and electrical action that are general and common to the whole of electrical engineering.
