Single phase 25 kV AC track Electrification
1500 V DC track electrification
Supply given to O/H condition
1-ph, 25KV, AC 50 Hz 
600/750V-Tromways 1500/3000V urban/suburban
Type of drive used
1-ph, AC series motor
DC series motor for tramways. DC compound motor
Weight of traction motor
1.5 times more than d.c. series motor.
1.5 times less than a.c series motor
Starting torque
Less starting torque than d.c series motor
High starting torque
Acceleration and retardation
Less than d.c series motor
Overload capacity
Less than d.c series motor
Method of speed control 
Simple and smooth
Limited, except chopper method
Maintenance cost of traction motor
