SUBSTATIONS FOR FEEDING THE 60 HZ CONTACT WIRE OF THE KOREAN STATE RAILWAYS

The railway line linking the capital Seoul to the east coast of South Korea was electrified between 1973 and 1975. The line is used chiefly for the transport of coal and cement. The article describes the substations for feeding the contact lines, in which only well-proven equipment requiring little maintenance is installed. Protection of the contact line requires special attention. A simple protective device is used which measures the harmonic content of the current as a criterion for distinction between operating and fault current.
