APPLICATION OF THYRISTORS IN RAILWAY TECHNOLOGY: CONSEQUENCES AND REMEDIES. TESTS WITH A STATIC FREQUENCY CONVERTER FOR 50-16 2/3 HZ
The Swedish State Railways (SJ) have conducted several comparative measurements on the Moholm - Skovde line, using a prototype of a static frequency converter (power 6 MVA) During the tests the equivalent disturbing currents and the weighted longitudinal e.m.f. induced in telecommunication circuits were measured; for these tests, the test line was fed through the static converter or through rotary converters. When the feeding took place through the static converter, the levels of the disturbing current in the overhead contact system and the induced weighted longitudinal e.m.f. were raised. However, a lowering of the levels measured may be expected, after the filter for the static converter has been modified. On the three-phase side there are no adverse effects, as long as the power of the static converter is very small in comparison with the short-circuit power of the high voltage network. The SJ have ordered, for two sub-stations, two static converters each with a power of 15 MVA each.
