Electric railway substations can be classified broadly into d-c substations and a-c substations. D-c substations using silicon rectifiers are simple to operate and highly reliable. In a-c electrification, the conventional booster transformer system is yielding to a newly-developed autotransformer system. These substations are so-called unattended substations supervised and controlled from a control center. Lately, computer control of railway substations has been realized.
