French term or phrase:préconditionnement
"Mise à la terre d’un élément PHD "Cœur de Cible’’ en service, en maintien de service, en préconditionnement"
The document concerns the protection of rail maintenance personnel from HV electric shock. I gather that préconditionnement refers to powering the train while it is still standing in the station, but can't think of the precise term in English.
