Contents (only German)

This European Standard specifies functional requirements for the validation of such simulation methods to ensure mutual acceptance of:
- input and output parameters of the simulation;
- comparison with line test measurements, and the characteristics of those line tests;
- comparison between different simulation methods, and
- limits of application of validated methods to assessments of pantographs and overhead contact lines.
This standard applies to the current collection from an overhead contact line by pantographs mounted on railway vehicles. It does not apply to trolley bus systems.
