The evaluation of the contact loss of the catenary system is the highlight issue for the high-speed railway vehicle. In this paper, using the multibody dynamic analysis techniques including a flexible body, the simulation method of the catenary system is proposed. The pantograph and overhead contact line are developed by using rigid body and ANCF (Absolute Nodal Coordinate Formulation) beam elements, respectively. And relative motions are constrained by sliding joint. Using this analysis model, contact force and loss of contact are calculated according to vehicle speed. The results of the simulation are evaluated by EN 50318 that is the international standard with regard to validation of the dynamic interaction between pantograph and overhead contact line.
