When a solution makes a new problem! Thermal ice melting of the contact wire locks the tension wheels in the tunnels and causes high tension.
Most of the overhead catenary systems are suffering from icing in winter. De-icing technology can be divided into three categories, which are thermal melting ice, mechanical icebreaking, natural passive methods. Vibropantographs or secondary “ice cutter” pantographs are some examples of mechanical icebreaking. You can read more in this article. The main week point of mechanical ice…
