Keywords:Straddle-type Monorail, Nonlinear models, Linear models, Pantograph, Lateral excitation
Based on the Lagrange equation, the linear and nonlinear dynamic models of straddle monorail pantograph considering the lateral vibration of bogie are derived. On this basis, the lateral coupling dynamic model of pantograph-catenary is established. Newmark method is used to solve the pantograph-catenary coupling dynamic model. In order to evaluate the applicability of the two models，this paper analyzed the contact force response of two model with different speeds. The reasearch show that when the speed is below 40 km/h, the contact forces of nonlinear model and linear model can reflects the lateral excitation of the finger plate. When the speed exceeds 40 km/h, only the nonlinear model can reflect the lateral excitation of finger palte, the nonlinear pantograph-catenary coupling dynamics model is more suitable to the straddle-type monorail pantograph-catenary coupling research.
