Project Summary

Feasibility of using high voltage couplers to reduce the need for running with multiple pantographs

Project Abstract

Project Briefs are hosted on
This project has reviewed the performance, safety and economic feasibility of an HV coupler for both new and existing trains. This HV coupler would reduce the need for multiple pantographs to be used which in turn would allow for potentially higher speed operation and improved reliability at the pantograph/OLE interface.
