Title: Static tests of current collectors in the production process and during operation
Abstract: The article presents issues related to testing current collectors installed on electric traction vehicles in relation to the applicable standards and regulations. The subject of static contact force measurements is discussed and a constructed measuring stand for testing static current collectors is presented. The static characteristics for selected pantographs were presented and discussed. The tests were carried out in accordance with the requirements of the PN-EN 50206-1: 2010 standard.
Key words: pantograph, static contact force, traction vehicles, measurement methodology.
