NEW CONCEPT FOR PROTECTING LINES AGAINST FAULTS IN DC TRANCTION NETWORKS

The problem of dc traction network protection is considered. The protective devices have the task of distinguishing between currents caused by the traction equipment and those due to faults, by performing an analysis. The author describes the special characteristics which have to be taken into account when developing new electronic devices and when deciding on a range of units which must meet the requirements of all networks. The elements to be considered in this analysis affect, on the one hand, the nature of the network-which depends on whether main-line railways, minor lines, urban tram or trolleybus routes, or rapid transit and underground railways are concerned-and, on the other, the operating conditions and features of the rolling stock.
