Abstract

The design process for overhead contact line systems (OCS) is very complex. Engineers need support for the design task, not only for the simple drawing but also with \“intelligent” relations between the single \“Objects” of the OCS. Within a period of more than 15 years today’s company Signon Deutschland GmbH developed as ELBAS GmbH the tool ELBAS OLACAD® for the design of OCS. The module allows the effective design of OCS for railway, light rail and tram systems in stations and workshops, including complex junctions and operating yards. With the help of this tool more exact results of OCS design can be reached in shorter time. The unique features of ELBAS OLACAD are: all relevant data stored inside the drawing (no additional database-system required), usable for railway, light rail and tram OCS, 2D and 3D representation in the same drawing, integrated static calculation for mast and foundation base accessories (EN 50119:2009 [1]). Keywords: overhead contact line, catenary, design and construction, CAD-tool, software, static calculation, railway, light rail, tram
