Tech/Engineering - Electronics / Elect Eng / power supply
French term or phrase: alimentation déportée
talking about a railway OHL (overhead line) system for d.c. current - the phrase suddenly crops up in brackets in a list "cas d'alimentations déportées"

I know I have met this before years ago but where to find it now ?

the words "dropper" and "bypass" keep crossing my mind

Notes to answerer
Asker: I'm the first to ask for more context mais la plus belle femme du monde, etc. I don't think it is "remote" given that it is the supply of power to the train from the OHL line....


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Charles Hawtrey: That's what I was thinking, or 'external power supply', but it seems out of place here. More text to place context better, please?
