DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF A SERVO-OPERATED PANTOGRAPH FOR HIGH SPEED TRAINS

The report describes the results of the work performed by Sikorsky Aircraft to design, fabricate, and develop a breadboard model of a servo operated pantograph for use on high speed trains. Design criteria were generated from an investigation made of overhead wire contact problems. Based on these criteria and the results of a servo-analysis performed, a pantograph system was designed and fabricated. Using a fabricated test rig, laboratory tests were conducted to determine the feasibility of the system. (Author)
