Measurement Results for Power Facilities in FASTECH360 High-speed Running Tests

In order to achieve an increase in Shinkansen commercial operation speeds, the effect on wayside facilities of increases in wind speed and vibration by passing trains needs to be evaluated. The overhead contact line system, lighting and power equipment including lamps and snow melting devices at turnouts, and power transforming equipment are among wayside power facilities requiring evaluation. Thus the authors evaluated the effect on those facilities using FASTECH360 high-speed test trains in running tests and confirmed that there are no problems in running at 360 km/h. This article will report the FASTECH360 high speed running tests power equipment measurement and evaluation results.
