OVERHEAD CATENARY TRACTION-SUPPLY FOR THE PARIS-LYON HIGH-SPEED LINE

Line tests with pantographs and catenary variations have established the characteristics required to suppress induced wave along the contact wire. The standard overhead design of the French National Railways has been found to be a sound one for speeds of 250 to 300 km/h. Already 200 km/h running is routine under such construction. Sectioning points and use of feeders at 50 kV in certain areas must still be established. It is concluded that reducing pantograph weight and increasing its flexibility may be most important.
