The excitation of the generator is then adjusted so that the optimum output power
is taken from the diesel engine. If the train load reduces, the generator will run at
a high-voltage/ low-current condition delivering part power. 30.2.3 Electrical
equipment Electrical equipment consists essentially of a main traction generator,
one or two auxiliary machines, a number of traction motors and the control
equipment necessary for both main and auxiliary circuits. On large main line

Engine crews must be able to make required brake tests to insure that the system
remains in operating order and operate the brakes to secure the best results
under different conditions existing on the track, locomotive, and train.
Maintenance men are more concerned with the internal construction of the

Normal functioning returns after exposure to diesel exhaust stops. As discussed
in Section 2.3.2 (reference to the National Environmental Policy Act EA), diesel
locomotives are sources of CO, NO,“ HC, and PM", emissions. Pollutant emission
factors that are representative of modern diesel-electric (1973-1999) passenger
locomotives were used in this analysis. The emission rates were obtained from
the Emission Factors for Locomotives, EPA 420-F-97-048. The locomotive fleet is
