A New Railway Power Flow Control System Coupled With Asymmetric Double LC Branches
Facing the challenges of power quality problems and excessive neutral sections of conventional two-phase electric railway supply system, the way of adopting railway static power conditioner (RPC)-based single-phase supply system is a feasible solution. To enhance the cost-efficiency and reliability of RPC, a novel compensating system named asymmetric double LC-coupled railway power flow conditioner (ALC-RPFC) is proposed in this paper. The study indicates that compared with the conventional RPC, the proposed ALC-RPFC has an effective heavy-load compensating ability with lower power rating, which is benefit to enhance converter’s operating efficiency and reliability. Besides, a design method for LC coupling branches mentioned in this paper is suitable for fluctuated railway loads, and is useful for designers of industrial applications as well. Finally, the good heavy-load compensating performance and power capacity decreasing ability of the ALC-RPFC are validated based on simulation and experiment results.
