Foundation Course in Overhead Line Electrification
Rail Engineering
Best Seller

An overhead line or overhead wire is used to transmit electrical energy to trams, trolleybuses or trains. An overhead line is designed on the principle of one or more overhead wires (or rails, particularly in tunnels) situated over rail tracks, raised to a high electrical potential by connection to feeder stations at regular intervals. The feeder stations are usually fed from a high-voltage electrical grid. This module is designed to familiarise learners on Overhead Line Electrification Engineering and whose work may involve or interact with OLE construction activities.


Module 1: Introduction to Railway Electrification Power Supply for traction system arrangements.
Module 2: Pre pegging plan and site markings, wiring plan and sectioning diagrams.
Module 3: Structure and support, Selection and Mechanical Properties, stability checks and electric clearance studies.
Module 4: Traction Power Stations, Power control system protection.
Module 5: Onsite training.
Module 6: SCADA and Remote Control, Testing and Commissioning, OLE System Learning.
