Requirement of EOG:
1. To reduce load on Loco to pull the Coach, as AC Coaches with Dynamo require high resistance to be pulled & hence Loco power gets utilized to negotiate friction, which affects both acceleration & MPS!!
2. With EOG, AC Capacity dont get affected if train has unusual or long stoppage, as power remains unaffected as compared to stored power in Dynamo (which reduces with time & if train has too much of stoppage or breaks, then AC isnt constant-as in Intercity)!!
