Bader M., Dozhina G., Lobyntsev V., Dmitry D., Dinisilov A.

At present, railroads traction substations use reliable, yet obsolete filter reactors of the RBFA-U type. These reactors have an open design and are characterized by a significant level of losses reaching several hundred kilowatts. New design solutions, as well as modern calculation methods, allow to design a filter reactor with a completely closed magnetic flux in an armored rod cylindrical magnetic system. The paper discusses the proposed design solutions used in the development of an energy-efficient smoothing reactor with previously unattainable performance characteristics with a 2-3 times increase in the energy density per volume.

Keywords: filter reactor, electrical substation.

Electrical equipment for high-speed trains of prospective electric traction system

 In’kov Y., Glyzin I.

The article considers the methods of implementation of the perspective electric traction system of trunk railways in Russia. To ensure smooth and efficient movement of heavy freight and high speed passenger trains the most promising is the system of the electric DC traction with the voltage in the сatenary system 18-24 kV. The task of creating a high voltage traction power system with the DC сatenary system with the existing equipment base of power electronics can be solved simply. Whereas the creation of energy efficient static converters of electric power for prospective electric rolling stock on the basis of hybrid systems IGBT- modules requires the solution of numerous theoretical and practical problems. Since the voltage of the asynchronous traction motor can't be higher than 3.0 kV, a matching transformer with a high frequency voltage must be installed in a static converter. The article considers performed at a high frequency voltage variations of realization of transformers with cores made out off permalloy, ferrite and amorphous steel, and it is shown that the use of a magnetic core out off amorphous steel will allow the frequency to voltage of 11.0 - 11.5 kV significantly to reduce the losses due to hysteresis and eddy currents in the magnetic core of the transformer at the frequency of voltage of 1.0 - 1.5 kHz. It is given an example of use of such a transformer when powered from single-phase autonomous voltage inverter.

Keywords: system of electric traction, ferrite, permalloy, amorphous steel, the magnetic circuit of the transformer, traction power supply, autonomous voltage inverter, the electric train, asynchronous traction motor, IGBT-module, pulsation of the magnetic flux.

Grechishnikov V., Shalamai I., Vlasov S., Sorokina A., Kurov N.

Calculating the power of connection of traction substations is a multidimensional and complex issue. The complexity of the definition of multiple sharply variable traction loads, sometimes contradictory requirements of SNiP, PUE, GOSTs, Recommendations and Government Decrees on the rules for access to electric power networks, the economic preferences of design and operating organizations, the safety of passengers, the probabilistic nature of emergency and abnormal operating modes of the system traction and external power supply. The article analyzes all possible approaches to determining the power of connection of traction substations, explains the fraughtness of some of them, gives recommendations on their application. Of course, full-scale analysis should include economic calculations of various options, but first, the economic consequences of accidents, like their scale, are difficult to predict and evaluate, and secondly, already the electrical engineering calculations show the failure of the race to reduce the costs of accession.
