Railway Application. Fixed Installations. Specification for reversible d.c. substations

Status : Current   Published : December 2015



This Technical Report provides recommendations for DC reversible substations. These recommendations apply to systems and components that facilitate the flow of energy to and from the upstream AC grid including their related interfaces. These recommendations provide the necessary functions for the recovery of braking energy. It is intended to be used in fixed electrical installations with nominal voltage not exceeding 3 000 V DC which supply electrical power to vehicles used in public guided transport systems, i.e. railway vehicles, tramway vehicles, underground vehicles and trolley-buses It is intended to provide an overview of state-of-the-art applications, define the minimum recommendations that are presently available, and provide functional recommendations to be applied to these substations. This document focuses mainly on the substation converters and the traction transformers. Other devices such as switchgear - if they are the same as in classic substations - are not addressed here. Moreover this specification addresses performance, constraints, validation and acceptance criteria for the implementation of reversible substations. This document provides the minimum recommendations to be fulfilled. However, due to the different possible solutions and different types of existing technologies, this document does not provide technical specifications of the basic components that facilitate the functionalities described.
