Event Details

rusted pipeLight Rail Transit Systems are growing in popularity with a number of projects both underway and planned in the Greater Toronto Area. Traction power is by DC power supplied from an overhead catenary with the running rails as the negative return. Current that does not return to the traction substation though the running rails and negative conductors is considered stray current. Stray current pick up and discharge from third party buried assets can be detrimental and they can suffer corrosion. The presentation discusses the fundamental stray current mitigation philosophy for the Eglinton Cross-town LRT.
