COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

having regard to Council Directive 96/48/EC of 23. July 1996 on the interoperability of the trans-European rail system for højhastighedstog1), and in particular article 6, paragraph 1,

on the basis of the following considerations:

(1) the trans-European high-speed rail system are in accordance with the provisions of article 2, subparagraph (c)), and annex II of Directive 96/48/EC divided into structural or functional subsystems, including a subsystem for energy.

(2) Commission decision 2002/733/EC 2) established the first technical specifications for interoperability (TSIs) in force for subsystem ' energy ' in the trans-European high-speed rail system.

(3) it is necessary to examine this first TSI in the light of technical progress and experience gained in the implementation of the.

(4) the AEIF has in his capacity as the representative body had a mandate to review and revise the first TSI. Decision 2002/733/EC should therefore be repealed and replaced by this decision.

(5) the Committee established by Directive 96/48/EC, has dealt with the draft revised TSI.

(6) this TSI applies to new or updated and renewed infrastructure under certain conditions.

(7) this TSI shall be without prejudice to the provisions of other relevant Tsis, which may be applied to the subsystems of energy.

(8) The first TSI concerning the subsystem ' energy ' entered into force in 2002. Due to existing contractual obligations, should new subsystems related to energy or interoperability constituents or renewal and upgrading of these fall within the scope of conformity assessment in accordance with the provisions of this first TSI should also be the first TSI continues to apply on maintenance, maintenance related to replacement of elements of the subsystem interoperability constituents and approved under the first TSI. Therefore, should the effects of decision 2002/733/EC continue to be maintained in connection with the continuation of projects approved in accordance with the TSI attached to the decision, and projects for new lines or the renewal or upgrading of an existing line which at the date of notification of this decision, are at an advanced level or is covered by a contract, which is under construction. In order to determine the differences in scope between the first and the new TSI TSI, which can be found in the annex to this decision, shall be forwarded by the Member States, no later than six months after the entry into force of this decision, a list of the sub-systems and interoperability constituents to which the first TSI still applies.

(9) this TSI does not require the use of specific technologies or technical solutions except where this is strictly necessary for the interoperability of the trans-European high-speed rail system.

(10) this TSI allows for a limited period of time, that interoperability constituents incorporated into the subsystem without approval, if certain conditions are met.

(11) this TSI does not specify fully all the essential requirements in its current form. In accordance with article 17 of Directive 96/48/EC are the technical aspects that are not covered, listed as ' outstanding ' in Annex L to this TSI. In accordance with article 16, paragraph 3, of Directive 96/48/EC, Member States shall send the other Member States and the Commission a list of their national technical regulations for» outstanding points ' and the procedures used for the conformity assessment of these.

(12) in connection with the specific cases described in Chapter 7 of this TSI, Member States shall communicate to the Commission and the other Member States of the conformity assessment procedures will be used.

(13) currently regulated railway traffic of the existing national, bilateral, multilateral or international agreements. It is important that these agreements do not prevent the ongoing and future development towards interoperability. Therefore, the Commission must examine those agreements in order to determine whether the TSI in this decision should be reviewed on the basis of this account.

(14) the TSI is based on best available expert knowledge at the time when the draft was drawn up. In order to continue to encourage innovation and to take account of the lessons learned should the attached TSI shall be revised at regular intervals.

(15) this TSI allows for innovative solutions. When proposing innovative solutions, the manufacturer or the contracting entity shall explain how they differ from the relevant section of the TSI. The European Railway Agency will complete the required functional and interface specifications for the solution and develop the assessment methods.

(16) the measures provided for in this decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee established by article 21 of Directive 96/48/EC

1. introduction

1.1. Technical scope

This TSI concerns the energy subsystem of the trans-European high-speed rail system. The energy subsystem is one of the subsystems listed in annex II (1) to Directive 96/48/EC as modified by Directive 2004/50/EC.

According to annex I of the directive includes high-speed lines:




– the specially built high-speed lines equipped for speeds generally equal to or greater than 250 km/h

– the specially upgraded high-speed lines equipped for speeds of the order of 200 km/h


-lines specially upgraded or built high-speed which have special features as a result of topographical or environmental, terrain-induced or town-planning constraints, on which the speed must be adapted to each case.



In this TSI are these lines classified as category I, category II and category III.

1.2. Geographical scope

The geographical scope of this TSI is the trans-European high-speed rail system as described in annex I to Directive 96/48/EC as modified by Directive 2004/50/EC.

It refers specifically to the lines of the trans-European rail network, which is described in European Parliament and Council decision No. 1692/96/EC of 23. July 1996 on Community guidelines with regard to the development of the trans-European transport network or any update of that decision as a result of a review in accordance with the same article 21.

1.3. content of the TSI

In accordance with article 5, paragraph 3, of Directive 96/48/EC as modified by Directive 2004/50/EC lays down this TSI the following:




a) it specifies the planned scope (Chapter 2);

(b)) it lays down essential requirements for the Energy subsystem referred (Chapter 3), and to its interfaces with other subsystems (Chapter 4);

c) establishes the functional and technical specifications which the subsystem and its interfaces with other subsystems (Chapter 4).

(d)), for which it shall determine the interoperability constituents and interfaces which must be drawn up for the European specifications, including European standards, which are necessary to achieve interoperability within the trans-European high-speed rail system (Chapter 5);

e) State, in each case under consideration, which procedures are to be used to assess the conformity or suitability for use of the interoperability constituents or EC verification of subsystems (Chapter 6);

f) indicate the strategy for implementing the TSI (Chapter 7);

g) it indicates the conditions under which it is assumed for the staff concerned, with regard to the professional qualifications and health and safety at work with operation and maintenance of the subsystem concerned and in the application of the TSI (Chapter 4).



In addition, in accordance with article 6, paragraph 3, be laid down provisions on the specific case of each TSI; These are indicated in Chapter 7.

Lastly, this Tsi Chapter 4 operating and maintenance rules for the scope that is specified in the above paragraphs 1.1 and 1.2.

2. DEFINITION of SUBSYSTEM/scope

2.1. Scope of application

In the energy Tsi specifies the necessary requirements with a view to ensuring the interoperability of the trans-European high-speed rail system. This TSI covers the infrastructure-based part of the energy subsystem and a part of the subsystem Maintenance relating to the infrastructure-based part of the energy subsystem. The energy subsystem of the trans-European high-speed rail system comprises all fixed installations, which — in accordance with the essential requirements — is necessary to supply the trains from single-or three-phase high-voltage line.

The energy subsystem also includes a definition and quality criteria for interaction between pantograph and overhead contact line (hereinafter referred to as overhead).

The energy subsystem consists of:




– substations: on the primary side is connected to the high-voltage grid with transformation of the high-voltage to a voltage and/or conversion to a power supply system suitable for the trains. On the secondary side substations are connected to the railway overhead contact lines;

— sektionerings points: electrical equipment located between substations to supply and parallel hooking the overhead line network and to be able to split it in protection zones, sektionere it and provide auxiliary power supply;

– overhead line system: a system that distributes the energy to the trains running on the line, and passes it to the trains by means of pantographs. The overhead line system is also fitted with manual or remote controlled Couplers for isolating sections or groups of contact wires, depending on operational needs. The food wires forming a part of the overhead line system;

– returstrømskredsløb: all leaders that make up the planned route for the traction return currents and power during error conditions. As regards this aspect constitutes returstrømskredsløbet a part of the energy subsystem and has an interface with the infrastructure subsystem;



Pantographs transfers electrical energy from the catenary to the train on which they are mounted. The pantograph is built in and used on the train and covered by Tsi on rolling stock. The interaction between pantograph and overhead contact line shall be specified in this TSI.

2.2. Definition of subsystem

2.2.1. Electrification system

A traction unit is — as any electrical device — designed to operate properly when connected to the rated voltage and frequency to its mount points, IE. pantograph (s) and wheels. To set up variations and limits for these parameters in order to ensure trains expected performance.

High-speed trains must use a corresponding high power. In order to provide the energy to the trains with the least possible losses due to resistance it is necessary to have a high supply voltage and (hence) a lower amperage. The power supply system must be designed in such a way that all trains be fitted with the necessary power. That is why each of the train's power consumption and the roadmap important for performance.

Modern trains can often make regenerative braking and send energy back to the power supply and thereby reduce the total power consumption. Therefore, the power supply system shall be designed so as to be able to receive energy from regenerative braking.

In any electrical system can occur short-circuits and other error conditions. The electrical system must be created so that kontroldelsystemet detects these errors immediately and implement measures that can cut short circuit flow and isolate the circuit race defective part. After such event shall be the electrical system as soon as possible could restore supply for the deployments, so the operation can be resumed.

2.2.2. Geometry of overhead line and pantograph

A compatible geometry of overhead contact line and the pantograph is an important aspect of interoperability. With regard to the geometrical interaction must be entered both the contact wire height above the Rails, the transverse displacement in the windless air and by wind pressure and contact force. The geometry of the pantograph is also important for ensuring good interaction with the contact wire, taking also into account the tank's fluctuations.

2.2.3. Interaction of overhead line and pantograph

At the high speeds, as you plan for the trans-European high-speed rail system, is the interaction of the overhead contact line and the pantograph, a very important aspect of the establishment of a reliable power transmission without undue influences of railway installations and of the environment. The interaction is determined mainly by




-static and aerodynamic effects depending on the nature of power purchasing using the contact pieces and the design of the pantograph, the shape of the car in which (a) is mounted pantograph and pantograph position on the cart,

– contact piece of material's compatibility with the catenary,

– the contact wire and pantograph (s) dynamic properties

– protection of the pantograph and overhead line equipment, if one of the pantograph contact pieces goes to pieces,

– the applied number of pantographs and the distance between these, since a pantograph can cause interference to the other in the same section of the overhead contact line.



2.2.4. Boundaries between high-speed lines and other lines

Different requirements will be in effect along a stretch. The transition between sections with different requirements affect energy supply and overhead contact line system and is therefore an aspect that needs to be dealt with in the energy Tsi.

2.3. Links with other subsystems and to other parts of the subsystem

2.3.1. introduction

The energy subsystem has links with other subsystems of the trans-European high-speed rail system in order to achieve the expected performance. These connections is covered by the definition of criteria for interfaces and performance.

2.3.2. Links concerning electrification system




– Voltage and frequency and their permissible areas have connections to the rolling stock subsystem.

– The power installed on the lines, and the specified power factor determine the performance of the interoperable high-speed rail system and interfaces with the rolling stock subsystem.

-Regenerative braking reduces energy consumption and interfaces with the rolling stock subsystem.

– Fixed electrical installations and traction equipment shall be protected against short circuits. Activation of the circuit breakers in substations and on trains must be coordinated. Electric protection interfaces in relation to the rolling stock subsystem.

– Electrical interference and harmonic emissions interface with the rolling stock and control-command and signalling subsystems.




2.3.3. Links concerning overhead contact line equipment and pantographs




– On high-speed lines, we must pay special attention to the contact wire height in order to avoid excessive wear. The contact wire height interfaces with the subsystems Infrastructure and rolling stock.

– The vehicle's safety and pantograph fluctuations have an interface with the infrastructure subsystem.



2.3.4. Links concerning interaction of overhead line and pantograph

Power aftagningens quality depends on the number of pantographs in service, the distance between them and the details of the traction device. Location of pantographs interfaces with the energy subsystem.

2.3.5. Relations regarding phase and system separation sections




– To enable trains to pass over times between electrified systems and phase separation sections without forming connection between (short-circuit) the various systems and stages, the number and arrangement of pantographs on trains is indicated. This has an interface with the rolling stock subsystem.

– To enable trains to pass over times between electrified systems and phase separation sections without forming connection between (short-circuit) the various systems and stages, there is a need for management of togstrømmen. This has interfaces for the control-command and signalling subsystem

– When passing through system separation sections, it may be necessary to lower the pantograph (s). This has interfaces for the control-command and signalling subsystem



3. ESSENTIAL REQUIREMENTS

3.1. General

Within the scope of this TSI will compliance with the specifications described:




– Chapter 4 for the subsystem

– conformity and/or suitability for use of the interoperability constituents

– and verification of the subsystem,



as described in Chapter 6 ensure compliance with the relevant essential requirements quoted in paragraphs 3.2 and 3.3 of this TSI.

If, however, some of the essential requirements is fulfilled by means of national regulations due to:




– outstanding points in the TSI or points that are fraught with caveats

– derogation in article 7 of Directive 96/48/EC as modified by Directive 2004/50/EC,

– special case as stated in this TSI, section 7.4,

The interoperability constituents are addressed in the relevant provisions of Directive 96/48/EC as modified by Directive 2004/50/EC, and the components relating to the energy subsystem are described below.

Overhead contact line:

The interoperability overhead contact line consists of the following components, which must be installed within the energy subsystem and the associated design and configuration rules.

Components on an overhead line is a structure of wires that are suspended over the railway line, which will supply electricity to electric trains, as well as the associated bracket insulators on the line and other devices including the food wires and coupling cables. It is placed above the upper limit of the loading gauge and supplying electrical energy to the trains through the roof-mounted current collection equipment is termed pantographs. Højhastighedstogsystemer used to impending run cables of cableway installations designed, then run the cord/-ies are tense between one or more cableway installations designed longitudinal.

Support components such as cantilevers, masts and foundations, returstrømsledere, food lines for automatic transformers, switches and other insulators are not part of the interoperability constituent on the catenary. They are subject to the requirements of the subsystem as regards interoperability.

6.4. Interoperability constituents without EC verification

6.4.1. General

For a limited period of time, known as the ' transitional period ' can interoperability constituents without EC verification in respect of conformity or suitability for use in exceptional cases incorporated into subsystems with the proviso that the provisions of this section are complied with.

6.4.2. The transition period

The transitional period initiated when this TSI enters into force, and lasts for at least six years.

When the transitional period has ended, and with those in section 6.4.3.3 below allowable exceptions, must be covered by the required interoperability constituents EC-declaration of conformity and/or suitability before they are incorporated into the subsystem.

6.4.3. Certification of subsystems containing non-certified interoperability constituents in the transitional period

6.4.3.1. Conditions


During the transitional period may be a notified body may issue a certificate of conformity of a subsystem, even though some of the interoperability constituents incorporated into the subsystem, not covered by the relevant EC declarations of conformity and/or certificate pursuant to this TSI, if the following three criteria are met:




– subsystem is checked in relation to the requirements, as defined in Chapter 4 of this TSI, the notified body, and

– If the notified body through supplementary estimates confirms that the conformity and/or suitability for use for interoperability constituents are in compliance with the requirements of Chapter 5, and

– interoperability constituents which are not covered by the relevant EC-conformity and/or suitability Declaration, must be used in a subsystem already put to use in at least one of the Member States, before this TSI enters into force.



There must not be drawn up EC-declarations of conformity and/or suitability for interoperability constituents assessed in this way.

6.4.3.2. Review




– Certificate of conformity for the subsystem must clearly specify which interoperability constituents that are assessed by the notified body as part of the subsystem verification.

– In the EC declaration of verification for the subsystem must clearly indicate:

– What are the interoperability constituents that are assessed as part of the subsystem

– confirmation of the subsystem contains the interoperability constituents are identical to those that have been verified as part of the subsystem.

– for those interoperability constituents the reasons for which the manufacturer has not presented an EC conformity-and/or-declaration of aptitude before it incorporated into the subsystem.



6.4.3.3. implementation in the service life of the subsystem

The manufacture or upgrading/renovation of the subsystem concerned must be carried out within a period of six years from the end of the transitional period. With regard to the service life of the subsystem:




– during the transition period and

– during the period of responsibility of the body which issued the Declaration of EC verification of the subsystem



should interoperability constituents which have not been issued a CE-and/or-declaration of aptitude, and that are of the same type and manufactured by the same manufacturer, used for maintenance related replacements and as spare parts in the subsystem.

After the end of the transitional period, and




– until the subsystem is upgraded, renewed or replaced, and

– during the period of responsibility of the body which issued the Declaration of EC verification of the subsystem



should interoperability constituents which have not been issued a CE-and/or-declaration of aptitude, and that are of the same type and manufactured by the same manufacturer, continue to be used for maintenance related replacements.

6.4.4. the performance follow-up system

During the transitional period, Member States must monitor:




– number and type of interoperability constituents that are marketed in their own country;

– ensure that when a subsystem shall be submitted for approval, you must record the reasons for which the manufacturer has not been certified interoperability;

– provide to the Commission and the other Member States of the non-certified IK and the reasons for the lack of certification.



7. implementation of the ENERGY TSI

7.1. Application of this TSI to new high-speed lines into service

Chapter 4 to 6 and any specific provisions in paragraph 7.4 below apply in full extent for the lines that are within the geographical scope of this Tsi (see section 1.2), and as placed in service after this TSI enters into force.

7.2. Application of this TSI on high-speed lines already in operation

7.2.1. introduction

Infrastructure installations already in operation, this TSI apply to sections of lines that is being upgraded or renewed in accordance with the provisions of article 14, paragraph 3, of Directive 96/48/EC as modified by Directive 2004/50/EC. In this particular context, it is fundamental for a transitional strategy that allows for an economically justifiable adaptation of the existing electricity plants.

This TSI can be applied directly to the new installations, but the implementation on other lines may require more or less extensive changes to existing installations. The necessary changes depends on the extent of compliance in the existing installation. The following principles are applicable for the TSI energy without prejudice to clause 7.4 (special cases). Where Member States require a new commissioning, should the client define the practical measures and the different phases which are necessary in order to meet the necessary performance requirements. These stages include transition periods, when commissioning can take place with reduced performance.

This TSI does not apply to existing subsystems for electricity supply on the high-speed network, if these do not have to be renewed or upgraded.

7.2.2. The classification of works

With regard to the expected lifetime of the various parts in the energy subsystem follows below a list of those parts listed in descending order of severity in connection with the introduction of the changes.




-Parameters and specifications for the entire subsystem

-Parameters for the mechanical parts of the overhead contact line

-Parameters for the power supply

-Parameters for the catenary

-Parameters for other measures, operation and maintenance



Table 7.2 contains parameters and the categories, they are contained in.

7.2.3. Parameters and specifications for the entire subsystem

The elements relating to the whole system is subject to the most constraints, since they often can and should be changed when a full conversion of the entire subsystem Energy for the journey (gen-electrification). Paragraph 4.2.10 also ties in with the changes of the loading gauge for line section (engineering structures, tunnels, etc.).

7.2.4. Parameters on the mechanical parts of the catenary and power supply

These parameters are less critical in connection with partial changes, either because the areas of limited geographical extent can gradually change them, or because certain parts can be changed independently of the subsystem for which they are a part of.

They will be brought into conformity during major projects for expansion of the overhead line system, designed to improve the line's performance.

It is impossible to gradually replace all or parts of the mechanical contact line elements with elements that are in accordance with the TSI. In such cases, consideration should be given to the fact that each of these elements taken in isolation is no guarantee that the whole picture is consistent: A subsystem or a interoperability compliance can only be stated globally, i.e. When all elements are brought into conformity with the TSI.

Intermediate stages may in this case prove necessary in order to maintain the contact wire compatibility with other subsystems requirements (control-command and signalling, infrastructure), as well as with the driving of trains, which are not covered by the TSIS.

7.2.5. Parameters for running the thread

Compliance is required each time a new contact wires installed in the overhead line system.

7.2.6. Parameters for other measures, operation and maintenance

These parameters must be met for each of the upgrades and renovations.

7.2.7. Scope

Everytime there is a X in column 3 or 4, the corresponding requirements also apply when using paragraph 7.2.3 (the whole subsystem, column 2).

When there is a "X" in column 5, the corresponding requirements also apply when using paragraph 7.2.3 (entire subsystem (column 2)) or 7.2.4 (mechanical parts of the catenary (column 3) or power supply (column 4)).

N.B.: in both cases, there is no requirement for a change of the physical components, if it can be shown that the TSI are complied with.

7.3. TSI revision

In accordance with article 6, paragraph 3, of Directive 96/48/EC as modified by Directive 2004/50/EC, the Agency has the task of preparing the review and updating of TSIs and making appropriate recommendations to the Committee referred to in article 21 in order to take account of technical developments or trends in the societal demands. In addition, the ongoing adoption and revision of other Tsis also affect this TSI. The proposed changes to the present TSI must be carefully reviewed, and updated Tsis will be published every three years (indicative range).

The Agency must be informed of all innovative solutions, such as manufacturers or contracting entities considering pursuant to section 6.1.2.3 or 6.2.2.2, or by the notified bodies, when the manufacturer or the originator has neglected this in order to determine whether or not the later to be included in the TSI.

In these cases, the Agency shall act in accordance with section 6.1.2.3 or 6.2.2.2.

7.4. Specific cases

The following special provisions shall apply in special cases. These specific cases are classified according to two categories: the provisions apply either permanently ("P" cases), or temporary ("T" cases). In relation to the temporary, or provisional, cases, it is recommended that the target system is achieved either by 2010 (' T1 '), an objective set out in European Parliament and Council decision No. 1692/96/EC of 23. July 1996 on Community guidelines for the development of the trans-European transport network, or by 2020 (' T2 ').

7.4.1. Particular features on the Austrian networks

(P cases)

Category II and III lines

The investment for replacement of the overhead contact line on category II and III lines and in stations, to comply with the requirements for 1600 mm Euro pantograph is prohibitive. Trains traversing these lines shall be provided with secondary 1950 mm pantographs for medium-speed operation up to 230 km/h, so the overhead contact line on these parts of the trans-European networks does not need to be equipped for operation with the Euro pantograph. In these areas it is allowed with a maximum lateral displacement of the catenary at 550 mm measured vertically from the track centre line under the influence of crosswind. Future studies on upgraded and connecting lines must take account of the Euro pantograph to demonstrate the relevance of the decisions taken.

Category III-lines (T1 case)

There is a need for additional substations in order to comply with the requirements for the average voltage at the pantograph and installed power. Installation is planned for 2010.

7.4.2. Particular features on the Belgian network

(T1 case)

Existing category in-lines

On existing category in the lines the phase separation sections are not compatible with the requirement that the spacing between three consecutive pantographs must be more than 143 m. Between existing category I and category II-lines lines, there is no automatic control to turn on the main switch on the traction units.

Both will be changed.

Category II and III lines

Under bridges on some section of the contact wire height does not comply with the minimum requirements laid down in TSI. This must be changed. There is no date.

7.4.3. Particular features on the German network

(P cases)

The investment in replacing overhead on category II and III lines and in stations, to comply with the requirements for 1600 mm Euro pantograph is prohibitive. Trains traversing these lines shall be provided with secondary 1950 mm pantographs for medium-speed operation up to 230 km/h, so the overhead contact line on these parts of the trans-European networks does not need to be equipped for operation with the Euro pantograph. On these lines is a maximum lateral displacement of the catenary at 550 mm allowed in relation to the vertical plane targets from the track centre line under the influence of crosswind. Future studies on category II and III lines must take account of the Euro pantograph to demonstrate the relevance of the decisions taken

7.4.4. Particular features on the Spanish network

(P cases)

On some category II and III lines and in stations is 1600 mm Euro pantograph is not allowed. Trains running on these lines, must be provided with secondary 1950 mm pantographs for use at medium speeds up to 230 km/h.


The investment for replacement of the overhead contact line on category II and III lines and in stations, to comply with the requirements for 1600 mm Euro pantograph is prohibitive. Trains traversing these lines shall be provided with secondary 1950 mm pantographs for medium-speed operation up to 230 km/h, so the overhead contact line on these parts of the trans-European networks does not need to be equipped for operation with the Euro pantograph. On these lines is a maximum lateral displacement of the catenary at 550 mm in relation to the vertical plane targets from the track centre line under the influence of crosswind. Future studies on category II and III lines must take account of the Euro pantograph to demonstrate the relevance of the decisions taken.

The nominal height of the catenary becoming 5.60 m on some sections of the upcoming category in-lines in Spain, in particular for the future high-speed line between Barcelona and Perpignan. This will also relate to France between Perpignan and the Spanish border, if it is required by both Governments.

On existing high-speed lines the phase separation sections are not compatible with the interoperable pantograph system for rolling stock (see Tsi for the rolling stock section 4.2.8.3.6.2). On these existing category in-lines requires very large investments in order to change the existing separation sections. In the case of incompatibility between the interoperable rolling stock in the form of a train and a separation section, the infrastructure manager will suggest specific operating conditions. Existing non-interoperable separation sections will be upgraded by the extensive changes.

7.4.5. Particular features on the French network

(P cases)

Category I-sections

On existing high-speed lines the phase separation sections are not compatible with the interoperable pantograph system for rolling stock (see Tsi for the rolling stock section 4.2.8.3.6.2). On these existing category in-lines requires very large investments in order to change the existing separation sections. In the case of incompatibility between the interoperable rolling stock in the form of a train and a separation section, the infrastructure manager will suggest specific operating conditions. Existing non-interoperable separation sections will be upgraded by the extensive changes.

Category I-lines (T2 case)

On a single high-speed line from Paris to Lyon, it is necessary to amend the contact wire, so you can achieve the maximum permissible uplift without installing withdrawal stop on the pantograph. That is why the train without leavening stop not authorized to run on this stretch.

Category II and III lines (T2 case)

Transverse profile of overhead contact line for DC lines are not sufficient to comply with the requirements of the TSI for current at standstill in stations or on areas where trains are pre-heated.

On the existing high-speed line Paris-Tours use a 1.5 kV DC section (around 20 km) at around 260 km/h. Change of this section is not yet scheduled.

Used a DC-1950 mm pantograph head at the existing DC line from Bordeaux to Spain (Irun). Run the wires need to be upgraded, so this stretch can be operated with interoperable Euro collector heads at 1600 mm.

7.4.6. Particular features on the British network

The railway infrastructure in the United Kingdom was historically built with a smaller loading gauge than the other railways in Europe. It is uneconomical or impossible to increase the loading gauge, and therefore is målprofilen for the United Kingdom UK1 issue 2 (see the infrastructure TSI to high-speed lines).

(P cases)

The contact wire height

A variable contact wire height and gradient are preserved on electrified lines in category II and III. The nominal contact wire height, which will be used in the future on upgraded lines in the United Kingdom, will be no less than 4700 mm. But when it is necessary for the sake of the environment, is the allowable minimum height 4140 mm, which is sufficient for passage by train, there are built in accordance with UK1B-profile.

The contact wire height at Continental Main Line, (the interface between Network Rail, Channel Tunnel Rail Link and Eurotunnel), varies between 5935 mm and 5870 mm.

Lateral displacement of the catenary at crosswind.

On the existing category II and III lines is the maximum lateral displacement of the contact wire in relation to the centre line of the track under the influence of crosswind 400 mm at a height of 4700 mm. for contact wire heights ≤ over 4700 mm reduced this value with 0.040 × (wire height (mm)-4700) mm for wire heights over 4700 mm.

Maximum contact force at discrete locations

On category II and III lines to the discrete functions be designed to withstand a maximum contact force (Fmax) of up to 300 N filtered at 20 Hz.

Phase separation sections

Overhead line equipment shall be designed for use with pantograph heads with a width of up to a maximum of 400 mm.

Pantograph profile

On electrified lines in category II and III must electrification infrastructure (with the exception of the catenary and page holder) does not come within the structure gauge, which is defined in the chart (see annex F); This is an absolute profile and not a reference profile that can be customized.

Voltage and frequency

In connection with this TSI, and references to a 50163:2004 and EN 50388:2005 include abnormal operating conditions of lack of access to a given combination of two or more power supplies.

Maximum train current

The maximum train current of electric lines in category II and III of the United Kingdom must be 300 A, unless a higher value is entered in the register of infrastructure for a particular route.

7.4.7. Particular features on the Euro tunnel network

(P cases)

The contact wire height on the Eurotunnel infrastructure in channel tunnel varies between 6020 mm and 5920 mm.

7.4.8. Particular features on the Italian network

Existing category in-lines (T1 case)

Geometry of overhead must be adjusted in height over a double track DC-stretch of 100 km.

These changes will be implemented for 2010.

Existing category in-lines (P case)

On the existing AC-high-speed line between Rome and Naples are the phase separation sections are not compatible with the interoperable pantograph system for rolling stock (see Tsi for the rolling stock section 4.2.8.3.6.2). On this stretch is required very high investments in order to change the existing separation sections. In the case of incompatibility between the interoperable rolling stock in the form of a train and a separation section, the infrastructure manager will suggest specific operating conditions. Existing non-interoperable separation sections will be upgraded by the extensive changes.

Category II and III DC lines (T1 case)

Geometry of overhead must be adjusted with respect to the height of contact wire on parts of the lines involved.

There is a need for additional substations in order to comply with the requirements for the average voltage at the pantograph and installed power.

These changes will be implemented for 2010.

7.4.9. Particular features on the Irish and Northern Irish networks

(P cases)

On electrified lines in Ireland and Northern Ireland is defined the nominal contact wire height of standard loading gauge IRL1 and the necessary clearances.

7.4.10. Particular features on the Swedish network

(P cases)

The highest non-permanent voltage (Umax2) for rolling stock is V instead of 18000 17500 v. the necessary investment in order to modify the catenary on category II and III lines and in stations, so that it meets the requirements for 1600 mm Euro pantograph is prohibitive. Trains traversing these lines shall be equipped with secondary pantographs on 1800 mm for medium-speed operation up to 230 km/h, so the overhead contact line on these parts of the trans-European networks does not need to be equipped for operation with the Euro pantograph. By driving over the Oresund Bridge to Sweden is 1950 mm pantographs allowed. On lines travelled by train with such pantographs are a maximum lateral displacement of the catenary at 500 mm under action of crosswind allowed. Future studies on category II and III lines must take account of the Euro pantograph to demonstrate the relevance of the decisions taken.

A kapacitativ power factor is not allowed by tensions over 16.5 kV in Sweden because of the risk of making it difficult or impossible for other trains to make regenerative braking due to too high a voltage in the catenary.

By regenerative braking (electric braking) must train does not act as a capacitor of more than 60 kVAr at any reclaimed effect, IE. to the kapacitative power factor is prohibited by regenerative braking. The exception with a 60 kVAr kapacitativ power factor is due to the fact that we want to have the ability to insert filters on the high voltage side of the train/traction device. These filters must not exceed 60 kVAr in capacitive power factor at the basic rate.

(P cases)

The contact wire is 6150 mm normal height (minimum 5600 mm, maximum 6500 mm).

7.4.12. Particular features on the Polish network

(P cases)


Category II and III lines have not been adapted to use with 1600 mm Euro pantograph. Trains traversing these lines shall be fitted with a 1950 mm pantographs with contact pieces of 1100 mm length (see a 50367:2006, Annex B, Figure B 8 and B. 3).

On category II and III lines must the maximum lateral displacement of the contact wire in relation to the centre line of the track under the influence of crosswind be 500 mm at an altitude of ≤ 5600 mm.

unless other values are defined in the infrastructure register for a particular route.

7.4.13. Particular features on the Danish net, including the Oresund Bridge to Sweden.

(P cases)

Category II and III lines

The investment for replacement of the overhead contact line on category II and III lines and connecting lines and in stations, to comply with the requirements for 1600 mm Euro pantograph is prohibitive. Trains traversing these lines shall be provided with secondary 1950 mm pantographs on 1800 or for medium-speed operation up to 230 km/h, so the overhead contact line on these parts of the trans-European networks does not need to be equipped for operation with the Euro pantograph. For lines that traversed by trains with such pantographs are a maximum lateral displacement of the catenary at 500 mm below the påvirking of side wind allowed.

Future studies on category II and III lines and connecting lines must take account of the Euro pantograph to demonstrate the relevance of the decisions taken.

On some AC-line sections with bridges and stations are overhead maximum height 4910 mm.

7.4.14. Particular features on the Norwegian net — to information

(P cases)

The investment for replacement of the overhead contact line on category II and III lines and in stations, to comply with the requirements for 1600 mm Euro pantograph is prohibitive. Trains traversing these lines shall be equipped with secondary pantographs on 1800 mm for medium-speed operation up to 230 km/h, so the overhead contact line on these parts of the trans-European networks does not need to be equipped for operation with the Euro pantograph. For lines that traversed by train with 1800 mm pantograph, a maximum lateral displacement of the catenary at 550 mm under påvirking of side wind allowed. Future studies on category II and III lines must take account of the Euro pantograph to demonstrate the relevance of the decisions taken.

A kapacitativ power factor is not allowed by tensions over 16.5 kV in Norway because of the risk of making it difficult or impossible for other trains to make regenerative braking due to high voltage in the catenary.

By regenerative braking (electric braking) must train does not act as a capacitor of more than 60 kVAr at any reclaimed effect, IE. to the kapacitative power factor is prohibited by regenerative braking.

7.4.15. Particular features on the Swiss networks — to information

(P cases)

The investment for replacement of the overhead contact line on category II and III lines and in stations, to comply with the requirements for 1600 mm Euro pantograph is prohibitive. Trains traversing these lines shall be equipped with secondary pantographs on 1450 mm for medium-speed operation up to 200 km/h, so the tunnel profile and the overhead contact line on these parts of the trans-European networks does not need to be equipped for operation with the Euro pantograph. Future studies on category II and III lines must take account of the Euro pantograph to demonstrate the relevance of the decisions taken.

7.4.16. Particular features on the Lithuanian net

The slightest contact wire height on open lines and in stations is 5750 mm, and at level crossings, there are open to road traffic, is the 6000 mm. In the specific case of tracks, which are not meant for the rolling stock shall stand still, and also on open lines, the smallest wire height may be reduced to 5675 mm.

The maximum contact wire height must in all cases be 6800 mm.

In order to allow for future changes to the track profile on stations, the nominal contact wire height on open lines be 6500 mm and 6600 mm at stations.

7.4.17. Particular features on the Dutch network

(P cases)

On the existing category II and III lines 1.5 kV DC overhead lines must be used with one or more 1950 mm pantographs.

Changes of contact wires on category II and III lines and in stations in order to be able to use a 1600 mm pantograph head is uneconomical and impractical.

New category II and III lines with a 1.5 kV DC catenary, which forms part of the high-speed rail network will be designed so that they are compatible with 1600 mm or 1950 mm pantograph heads.

7.4.18. Particular features on the Slovak net

Category II and III lines have not been adapted to use with 1600 mm Euro pantograph. Trains traversing these lines shall be fitted with a 1950 mm pantographs.

ANNEX F

Specific example — United Kingdom — pantograph profile Enveloppe



Legend:




– envelope height ' H ' = 6240 mm Maximum

– uplift

– The Euro pan

– centre line of track that extreme position permitted by track tolerance



The chart shows the outer profile, within which the pantograph head movements to take place. The template should be placed at the outer position of the track allowed center lines taking into account track tolerances not included. The profile is not a reference profile.

At any speed up to the line speed, maximum height, maximum wind speed over where unobstructed drive is possible, and extreme wind speeds, as defined in the infrastructure register, are:







 

 

 



 



W = 800 mm, + J





When H ≤ 4 300 mm.







and



 

 



 



W ' = 800 + (J) + (0.040 × (H – 4 300)) mm,





When H > 4 300 mm.





 

 

 





Where:



 

 



 

 

 





H   =





the height to the top of the profile above the track level (in mm). The dimension is the sum of the contact wire height and square to uplift.







J   =





200 mm on right track







J   =





230 mm on curved track.







J   =





190 mm (minimum), when the profile is limited by the distance to the structures, and cannot be extended for economic reasons.





 

 

 





To be taken further into account, including the wear of the contact wire, mechanical clearance, static and dynamic electrical clearance zone, including the use of pantographs with energized horn.
