Traction power system simulation in electrified railways
Ho, T.K., Chi, Y.L., Siu, L.K., & Ferreira, L. (2005) Traction power system simulation in electrified railways. Journal of Transportation Systems Engineering and Information Technology, 5(3), pp. 93-107.
Electricity has been the major source of power in most railway systems. Reliable, efficient and safe power distribution to the trains is vitally important to the overall quality of railway service. Like any large-scale engineering system, design, operation and planning of traction power systems rely heavily on computer simulation. This paper reviews the major features on modelling and the general practices for traction power system simulation; and introduces the development of the latest simulation approach with discussions on simulation results and practical applications. Remarks will also be given on the future challenges on traction power system simulation.
