The trolleybus has been a popular public transport vehicle for more than a hundred years across the world. However, the typical features of double passive pantograph-booms with two-wire overhead line often creates complicated catenary webs (particularly at crossroads) and can result in easily de-wiring and arcing issues. In this thesis, a novel concept of Active Control of Trolleybus Current Collection System (ACTCCS) is introduced with actuator-controlled solo-pantograph and single overhead line (catenary formed by two wires fitted on a frame with enough electric clearance and creep) as well as electric (traction)-electric (battery or supercapacitor backup) hybrid (E-E hybrid) propulsion.
