Title: Specification of minimum short circuit capacity for three-phase unbalance evaluation of high-speed railway power system

Abstract

In the paper, firstly, the authors present an efficient computational algorithm to evaluate the short circuit capacity distribution at a substation bus, and on basis of this distribution to specify the minimum short circuit capacity for the year under evaluation. Secondly, the authors estimate the maximum traction load at seven 161kv substations of Taiwan high-speed railway system which is now under planning. Thirdly, using the maximum traction load and the minimum short circuit capacity derived, the authors estimate the maximum unbalance of the 3{phi} voltage at these seven 161kv substations, and compare their results with that by Taipower to demonstrate the effectiveness of their proposed algorithm.

  • A new input current modulation strategy for a matrix converter is presented. The performance of the new strategy during input voltage unbalance is compared to two other strategies. The difference of the three modulations only concerns the detection of the reference angle for the input current vector. The input current quality is evaluated using four different criteria. It is concluded that depending upon the modulation strategy, the distortion of the input current may appear either as a series of positive sequence harmonics or a negative sequence fundamental component or a positive and a negative series of harmonic components with reducedmore » amplitudes. Good accordance is found between the analytical solutions and numerical simulation.« less
  • This paper introduces the analysis of the voltage unbalances caused by the demands of a high-speed railway on a public power system. A powerful three-phase power-flow program with simplified traction substation models is used to evaluate the voltage unbalances in detail. The evaluations consider the interactions between neighboring substations in which large unbalanced traction loads are connected. All of the bus voltages, line currents, system power flows and losses are calculated rigorously. The effects of unbalanced traction loads on a public power system and interactions between neighboring substations are discussed. The simulation results show that the system unbalances are affectedmore » by common balanced loads as well as the unbalanced traction loads. The balanced loads amplify the degrees of the voltage unbalances that are caused by the traction loads or other unbalanced loads, such as furnaces. The results also indicate that the degree of voltage unbalances at the point of common coupling is not necessarily the maximum in the entire system. This fact is of value to consultants and engineers involved in related work and should be emphasized.« less

  • Mixtures of Linde Ionsiv IE-96 and Ionsiv A-51 zeolites were evaluated for use in the Submerged Demineralizer System (SDS) that was installed at the Three Mile Island Nuclear Power Station, Unit 2 (TMI-2) for decontaminating approx. 3000 m/sup 3/ (approx. 700,000 gal) of high-activity-level water in the containment building sump. Small-scale, tracer-level column tests were made using various mixtures of the zeolites to evaluate the capability for simultaneous removal of cesium and strontium. A column loading test was made in a hot cell using a mixture of equal parts of the zeolites to evaluate the performance of the mixture inmore » removing cesium and strontium from a sample of TMI-2 sump water. A computerized mathematical model of the mixed-bed SDS system was used to evaluate the test data in order to select a zeolite mixture and predict system performance.« less
