Method for improving performance of devices for adjustable reactive power compensation
Omsk State Transport University (OSTU), 644046, Omsk, Russia
The article presents a method for selecting the parameters of the current-voltage characteristics of adjustable reactive power compensation devices used at sectioning stations of railway sections electrified by alternating current with a voltage of 27.5 kV. This technique is based on the experience of operating two types of devices in the traction power supply system. Power control of these devices is implemented by the voltage level at the switching point. Selection of the setpoint voltage and slope characteristics was done. The developed method allows increasing the efficiency of devices by eliminating the voltage losses on the active component of traction loads. That will reduce the loss of electricity in the system of traction power supply. Changing the parameters of the characteristics will increase the relationship between the reactive power consumed in the zone and the voltage measured by the devices. Following the results of the formation of the methodology, an example of the choice of characteristics for a real compensation device is presented.
