Abstract

AC electric traction system analysis: modelling and simulation in railway operation P. Firpo, S. Savio Dipartimento di Ingegneria Elettrica, Universitd di Genova, Via allVpera Pia, 11 a - 16145 Genova, Italy ABSTRACT Simulation tools are of notable help in the design of electrified transport systems, as they make it possible to analyze the overall behaviour of a system and hence to verify the correctness of the design parameters or to establish the modifications to be performed. The computation code proposed in this article allows one to carry out the analysis of the overall steady-state behaviour of a traction system; more precisely, it is an integrated simulator for A.C. electrified double-track railway lines. INTRODUCTION In recent years, the technological evolution undergone by computing systems has provided designers with very fast, reliable and efficient simulation tools for verification purposes. In the design of particularly complex syste
