INCREASING THE POWER SYSTEM CAPACITY OF THE 50 KV BLACK MESA AND LAKE POWELL RAILROAD THROUGH HARMONIC FILTERING AND SERIES COMPENSATION

A 50 kV electrified railroad must be uprated to double its hauling capacity without additional substations or transmission line. Careful analysis of the power supply requirements for rectifier drives produces a filtered, compensated system having more than twice the former capability. A transient network analyzer is used to evaluate the overall system and to model the train performance. Field measurements confirm the design expectations.
