Electrical Traction means the system that uses electrical power for traction system i.e. for railways, trams, trolleys, etc. is called electrical traction.

Main Advantages Electrical Traction System are :

  • It is free from smoke and flu gases. So clean
  • Regenerative braking is used
  • D.C. series motors are used because of its high starting torque characteristics. So high acceleration.
  • Economical operation cost.
