2010 news: Osong - Kimcheon project
During 2010, Catenary consultants particpated in the OSONG - KIMCHEON KTX project in South Korea. The project consist of building a new KTX station in the...
In railway engineering, a catenary structure consists of overhead lines used to deliver electricity to a railway locomotive, multiple unit railcar, tram or trolleybus through a panthograph or a trolleypole. These structures contains an upper structural wire in the form of a shallow catenary, short suspender wires, which may have insulators, and a lower conductive contact wire.
The catenary structure (formula) becomes the critical success factor in HST engineering. The higher the speed, the more delicate the construction and the finishing of the overhead lines
By using more flexible arms and combinations of modern composite materials, the speed can be increased without losing the cleave of the pantograph
