POWER COLLECTION BY SLIDING CONTACT METHODS FOR HIGH SPEED GUIDED VEHICLES. PHASE I. ANALYZE TECHNIQUES AND DESIGN CONCEPTS

As a result of the high speed (300 mph) power collection research, specific recommendations are developed for power collection system design, candidate materials and further analysis and testing. Each of these areas is covered in detail. A power collection system based on the use of multiple contacts mounted on a servo driven support is recommended. Techniques for material selection are developed and used for the selection of preferred candidate materials for both the distributor and collector. Recommendations are presented for evaluation and verification of both collector system design and materials selection with laboratory-type equipment. (Author)
