Requirements and assessment of interoperability constituents: overhead contact line of the “Energy” subsystem and the pantograph and contact strips of “Locomotives and passenger rolling stock” subsystem according to EC TSI

Abstract


The introduction to this article gives the definitions of general terms used in the European Union Directives and Decisions. Subsequently, those interoperability constituents and subsystems which can be assessed by the Electric Power Division of the Railway Institute will be discussed. Those interoperability constituents are: overhead contact line, pantograph and contact strip. Issues relating to main circuit breaker assessment – which is also performed by the Division – are not a subject of this paper. Moreover, the paper describes the process of assessing the 21 basic parameters that are subject to analysis during the assessment of overhead contact line interoperability constituents and the „Energy” subsystem. Due to the limited volume of this paper the pantograph and the contact strip interoperability constituents – which are a part of the ‘Locomotives and passenger rolling stock’ subsystem – have only been described briefly.
