Abstract

Control and reduction of the voltage transients in power distribution systems feeding electrified railways are a significant issue. Theref ore, it is necessary to study how and why the voltage transi ents are injected to the system and how they can be reduced. In this paper, the switching and lightning overvoltage transients of DC electrified railways are studi ed and investigated and the selection of qualified DC su rge arresters and their best point of connection to the electric system are recommended. Later on, through the simulation results done with PSCAD/EMTDC the e fficiency of the selected and installed surge arresters with the proposed characteristics is verified.
