the wiki (https://wiki.railml.org/index.php?title=RS:propulsion) currently does
not contain a clear description of the enumeration values. Not in every case it
is really obvious. The technology development may also contribute in some more
powerType - the source of energy for propulsion of the vehicle
Currently we have [electric, diesel, steam] but what about new forms like
hybrids, fuel cell, battery etc?
transmission - the way to transmit and adjust the power to the drive
Currently we have [electric, hydraulic, mechanical]. Are there any other ways of
Although not described in the wiki "hydraulic" stands for hydrodynamic and
hydrostatic transmission. The latter one is not really used for locomotive
traction why a discrimination would thought not necessary.
controlType - the way to control the power output of the traction drive
Currently we have [camshaftControl, contactorControl, rectifier,
thyristorControl]. Are there any other ways of control?
