This study aims to create a numerical analysis model which can investigate the interaction between pantograph and overhead contact line used for railway vehicles, and validate the simulation results according to EN 50318 standards. Finite element analysis models of pantograph and overhead contact line are created using SAMCEF, a commercial FE analysis program, and mean, standard deviation, maximum and minimum values of contact forces are obtained. The simulation results are validated according to EN 50318, and the reliability of SAMCEF as an analysis solver of railway vehicle’s catenary system is discussed.
