From February 1981 to June 1983, the Electric Power Research Institute funded IIT Research Institute to examine the problem of interference to railroad communications and signal systems from high-voltage, overhead, alternating current (ac) power lines. A key goal of this project was to develop means to accurately forecast whether or not a planned power line to be located near a railroad will cause interference problems. A second important goal was to develop means to perform accurate cost-versus-benefit trade-off studies for mitigation if interference is expected to be a problem. In this paper the approaches used by IIT Research Institute in attaining these goals are discussed, and the project accomplishments, principal findings, and principal remaining problems are summarized.
