Abstract

To eliminate the negative-sequence and harmonic currents in the traction system of electric trains, a novel compensatory algorithm is proposed for half-bridge-converter-based railway static power conditioner (HBRPC) by applying impedance-matching (IM) transformers. HBRPC is composed of two half-bridge converters along with two capacitors which makes use of a smaller number of power switches in comparison with conventional compensators. It consequently becomes cheaper than the conventional compensators. This article proposes an algorithm to generate reference current composing of active, reactive, and harmonic current which compensates negative-sequence and harmonic currents on the three-phase side. The simulation results show that the proposed algorithm compensates negative-sequence and harmonic currents in the same range as other compensators, respecting lower expenses.
