A Compensation Techniques Of Railway Power Conditioner For Railway Power System

Bogi Shanthi Kumari, Haritha Inavolu


This paper provides an analysis of a three-phase dual active bridge (DAB) topology used as high-power-density dc–dc converter for railway applications. The three-phase DAB is analyzed concerning the current intervals, the output power, and soft switching region, including the impact of zero-voltage switching capacitors. Furthermore, two measures are proposed to achieve soft-switching in the entire operating range, being auxiliary inductors and a straightforward switching strategy called the burst mode. Optimal component values are calculated to minimize losses in the complete operating range and to assess which measure is best suited. A prototype with the specifications acquired from the application has been built, yielding an efficiency of 95.6% at a nominal output power of 80 kW. High-speed train traction power supply system causes serious negative current problem. In extension Railway power conditioner (RPC) is efficient in negative sequence compensation. A novel power quality collaboration compensation system and strategy based on RPC is proposed in this paper. The minimum capacity conducted is 1/3 smaller than traditional single station compensation. Simulation results have confirmed that the collaboration compensation system proposed can achieve a good performance at the negative sequence compensation with capacity and cost efficient.
