SIMULATION OF OVERHEAD CONTACT WIRE AND PANTOGRAPH AS A SYSTEM

The interaction of catenaries and pantographs and the voltages to which they are subjected must be quantified in order to be able to take accident-prevention measures. A computerised simulation method has therefore been developed, following a programme of research. In addition, full-scale apparatus has been set up to test pantograph-supplied power, with a view to confirming the values obtained as a result of theoretical analysis and simulation. Various trials are now under way. The article gives a brief survey of computerised simulation and the installation of experimental power supply equipment.
