Comparison of Three Modes of AT-fed Traction Power Networks


The features of three modes of AT-fed traction power networks (TPNs) have been briefly described in the existing literature, which is not adequate yet. In this paper, these three modes of TPNs are compared mainly on TPN capacity, transformer capacity, rail potential and voltage level, etc., and conclusions are drawn.
