Abstract

In electrified railways, traction load not only fluctuates between peaks and valleys, but also has a situation of low utilization rate of average load throughout the day and short overload. The traction transformer selects the capacity with the peak load as the demand boundary, which will cause the capacity utilization rate to be low and even lead to the economic decline of the traction power supply system. This article summarizes the existing configuration methods for capacity optimization of traction transformer. Then under the conditions of energy storage and new energy access to traction power supply system, the three aspects are described as follows. Firstly, the energy storage device is connected to the system, which can pull the capacity of traction transformer to achieve peak shifting and valley filling. Then, the possibility of integrated configuration of new energy and traction power supply system to optimize the capacity of traction transformer and the methods of optimal configuration of traction transformer capacity by using new energy such as wind and light are summarized. Finally, this paper discusses the current structure of new energy access to traction power supply system, and it looks forward to the feasibility of new energy access to traction power supply system cooperating with energy storage devices to optimize the capacity of traction transformer.
