Abstract

This paper describes the background to, development and trials of a system fitted to in-service train which can measure the quality of the dynamic interface between shoegear and the third rail on the UK 750V DC network. The paper will demonstrate the early results showing the systems ability to pick out locations where the interface is performing abnormally and to detect the defects responsible for those deviations.
