Dynamic aspects of interaction: pantograph – catenary

Marek Dudzik,

There are many existing models for the interaction of a pantograph–catenary system. The authors propose a specific model, which is amended by taking into account the dynamic part of the motion equation. This model was compared to another attempt and conclusions were drawn. A numerical study was performed using the Matlab Simulink Environment.
