COMPENSATION INSTALLATIONS IN THE 15-KV, 16 2/3-HZ OVERHEAD CONTACT NETWORK OF THE WEST GERMAN RAILROAD SYSTEM

KOMPENSATIONSANLAGEN IM 15-KV-16 2/3-HZ-FAHRLEITUNGSNETZ DER DEUTSCHEN BUNDESBAHN

In spite of certain advantages, tractive units with phase-angle control have the disadvantage of a worse power factor than those of conventional design. Therefore the use of the phase-angle controlled electric multiple unit series 420 of the West German Railroad System during the Olympic Games 1972 in Munich required installations for improvement of the power factor. By means of tests and computations, it is shown that the use of stationary compensation installations is the technical and economical optimum solution within the network of the West German system. Design guidelines are indicated, and installations already implemented are described.
