Abstract

In this paper a comprehensive review of electrified railway systems is carried out, identifying the electric power quality deterioration which may appear due to nonlinear dynamic traction loads. Following this topic, a computational simulation of Static Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM) and Rail Power Conditioner (RPC) are presented, making a comprehensive analysis of each of these solutions regarding the power quality improvement in electrified railway systems. Four case studies are presented: (i) STATCOM evaluation when a traction power system is fed by a V/V power transformer; (ii) STATCOM evaluation when a traction power system is fed by a Scott power transformer; (iii) RPC evaluation when atraction power system is fed by a V/V power transformer; (iv) RPC evaluation when a traction power system is fed by aScott power transformer.
