Flexible medium voltage DC electric railway systems


Assessment of performance for MVDC electrification systems

A short report will be developed summarising the results obtained from the model of static converters developed in Task 1.2. The report will include monitoring and verification of the impact against the technical KPI (a)

Literature review of converters suitable for MVDC railway electrification

A short report will be developed from the study of the most important and recent articles published on static converters for the supply of railway electrification systems and for medium voltage power distribution networks

Converters topologies for MVDC transformers

A short report will be produced comparing several modular topologies for MVDC transformers to identify the most suitable for the application to railway traction.
