The author discusses problems of electric induction on the railways with particular reference to high-speed running tests and considers important parameters such as traction current 1F, disturbance current 1ST and the harmonic oscillations in the contact-wire current, as well as the measuring techniques involved. Also dealt with are the possible effects of induction on signalling and telecommunications equipment. Evaluation of the measurements obtained shows that, if appropriate steps are taken, functional faults or similar undersirable phenomena caused by a.c. traction stock are not to be expected.
