Performance Evaluations of the 3rd Rail Type Power Collector for Rubber-Tired Vehicles
This study was aimed to verify the performance and stability of the 3rd rail type power collector for rubber-tired vehicles. Performance (power interruptions), durability (stresses), stability (vibrations and contact force variations) of the developed power collector were measured and analyzed, while the rubber-tired vehicle ran at various speeds on the test track(about 2.4km).
