OVERHEAD EQUIPMENT AND CURRENT COLLECTION AT SPEEDS FROM 160 TO 300 KM/H

This paper describes the results of investigations on the interaction of the overhead equipment and the various modern pantographs at speeds of 160 to 300 km/h. Recommendations are given for reliable and effective current collection for three speed ranges: up to 160 km/h, up to 200 km/h, and for 250-300 km/h. It is shown that to ensure normal current collection at speeds up to 160 km/h, relatively small modifications of the overhead are required. As for running at speeds up to 200 km/h on existing electrified lines, the problem may be solved by using improved types of pantographs with a small reduced weight.
