HIGH POWER TRACTION CURRENT COLLECTION AT HIGH SPEED. HEATING AND LOAD CAPACITY OF THE OVERHEAD LINES UNDER CONTINUOUS LOADING
This report analyses heating of contact wire and catenary of an overhead line consisting of a contact wire of 100 sq mm copper and a catenary of 50 sq mm bronze, depending on the magnitude of the traction current and wind speed. Permissible traction currents as a function of time are given for some final temperature of the copper wire.
