Research on Voltage Losses of AT Traction Power Supply System


Unilateral power supply system has been used because of the management status of the power grid system, while, bilateral power supply system is adopted in the Soviet Union and France. The feasibility that whether bilateral system can be put applied in China is discussed. Compared with unilateral power supply system, bilateral system has better reliability and better capability of supply power system, which gives bilateral system more advantages over unilateral system on both engineering investment and operating efficiency. In this paper, voltage losses under the two different systems are calculated and also compared, the advantages of bilateral system is explored and then conclusion is drawn by referring to the practical data of passenger transport lines.
