LA County Metro: Pilot Project
During the 10 days the MACE™ was actively collecting data, over 700,000 data points were collected; each of which was subsequently analyzed and incorporated into the official Project Report. This data established that the MACE Unit performed even better than expected; as:
- it was able to extend what had been anticipated to be a 90 second TIE (train initiated event) event to an event with an average length of 147 seconds – capturing the airflow both in front of and behind (vacuum effect) the passing train; and
- it was able to generate power at lower train speeds than anticipated.
