A mathematical model is formed on the basis of representing the overhead line by a multi-particle system and the pantograph by a concentrated mass. A new method is proposed to find the contact force between the pantograph and the overhead line making use of the future motion of the overhead line. By this method, the characteristic properties of the system are obtained more exactly and the theoretical results show a good agreement with the experimental results.
