This document specifies requirements for the acceptance of simulation tools used for the assessment of design of electric traction power supply systems with respect to TSI Energy. This document is applicable to the simulation of AC and DC electric traction power supply systems, in the frame of assessment required by Directive (EU) 2016/797. The methods and parameters defined in this document are only intended for use in the design of the electric traction power supply system, and hence this document solely considers validation of tools within the TSI energy subsystem for all envisaged railway networks. This document does not deal with validation of simulation tools by measurement. This document focuses on the core simulation functions comprising the equations and functions which calculate the mechanical movement of trains and also which calculate the load flow of the electrical traction power supply system. In doing so this document provides all requirements necessary to demonstrate that a simulation tool may be used for the purposes of TSI approval of electric traction power supply systems. Any simulation tool which meets the acceptance requirements of the test cases in this document can be used to determine TSI compatibility for all systems of the same voltage and frequency without any requirement for further validation as part of the TSI assessment process. This document includes controls for the modification of simulation tools, in particular the limits of applicability of certification when tools are modified. These controls focus on determining whether the core functions of the simulation model are modified. This document provides only the requirements for demonstration of the algorithms and calculations of core functions. The use of a certified simulation tool in accordance with this document does not, in itself, demonstrate good practice in electric traction power supply system design, neither does it guarantee that the simulation models and data for infrastructure or trains used in the tool are correct for a given application. The choice and application of any models and data, of individual system components, in a design is therefore subject to additional verification processes and not in the Scope of this document. Competent development of design models and full understanding of the limits of design tools remain requirements in any system design. This document does not reduce any element of the need for competent designers to lead the design process. The test cases and data shown in Clause 6 in this document do not represent an existing network, but these data are used as theoretical/virtual network only for the purpose of verification of the core functionality. NOTE A new test case will be drafted considering metro, tramways and trolleybuses using DC 600 V or DC 750 V. Until this test case is available, this document can also be applied to subway, tram and trolley bus systems. This test case will also integrate rail systems using DC 750 V. Additionally, the application of this document ensures that the output data of different simulation tools are consistent when they are using the same set of input data listed in Clause 6. This document only applies to the simulation of electric traction power supply systems characteristics at their nominal frequency for AC or DC systems. It does not consider harmonic studies, electrical safety studies (e.g. rail potential), short circuit or electromagnetic compatibility studies over a wide frequency spectrum. This document does not mandate the use of a particular simulation tool in order to validate the design of an electric traction power supply system. This document does not consider complex models with active components such as static frequency convertors.

This Technical Report provides recommendations for DC reversible substations. These recommendations apply to systems and components that facilitate the flow of energy to and from the upstream AC grid including their related interfaces. These recommendations provide the necessary functions for the recovery of braking energy. It is intended to be used in fixed electrical installations with nominal voltage not exceeding 3 000 V DC which supply electrical power to vehicles used in public guided transport systems, i.e. railway vehicles, tramway vehicles, underground vehicles and trolley-buses It is intended to provide an overview of state-of-the-art applications, define the minimum recommendations that are presently available, and provide functional recommendations to be applied to these substations. This document focuses mainly on the substation converters and the traction transformers. Other devices such as switchgear - if they are the same as in classic substations - are not addressed here. Moreover this specification addresses performance, constraints, validation and acceptance criteria for the implementation of reversible substations. This document provides the minimum recommendations to be fulfilled. However, due to the different possible solutions and different types of existing technologies, this document does not provide technical specifications of the basic components that facilitate the functionalities described.

This European Standard establishes requirements for the compatibility of rolling stock with infrastructure particularly in relation to: – co-ordination of protection principles between power supply and traction units, especially fault discrimination for short-circuits; – co-ordination of installed power on the line and the power demand of trains; – co-ordination of traction unit regenerative braking and power supply receptivity; – co-ordination of harmonic behaviour. This European Standard deals with the definition and quality requirements of the power supply at the interface between traction units and fixed installations. This European Standard specifies the interface between rolling stock and electrical fixed installations for traction, in respect of the power supply system. The interaction between pantograph and overhead contact line is dealt with in EN 50367. The interaction with the “control-command” subsystem (especially signalling) is not dealt with in this standard. Requirements are given for TSI lines (both high speed and conventional) and classical lines. For classical lines, values, where given, are for the existing European networks. Furthermore the maximum values that are specified are applicable to the foreseen developments of the infrastructure of the Trans European rail networks. The following electric traction systems are within scope: – railways; – guided mass transport systems that are integrated with railways; – material transport systems that are integrated with railways. This European Standard does not apply retrospectively to rolling stock already in service. Information is given on electrification parameters such as to enable train operating companies to confirm, after consultation with the rolling stock manufacturers, that there will be no consequential disturbance on the electrification system.

The presence of ac power supply systems or of a.c. electric traction systems (in this standard also indicated as a.c. power systems) may cause voltages to build up in pipeline systems,(in this standard indicated as interfered systems) running in the close vicinity, due to one or more of the following mechanisms:  inductive coupling,  conductive coupling,  capacitive coupling. Such voltages may cause danger to persons, damage to pipelines or connected equipment or disturbance to the electrical/ electronic equipment connected to the pipeline. This European Standard deals with the situations where these effects may arise and with the maximum tolerable limits of the interference effects, taking into account the behaviour of the ac power systems both in normal operating condition and/or during faults. NOTE In the worst case, the pipe may not disperse current to ground. As a consequence, the prospective touch voltage coincides with the interference voltage. This European Standard applies to all metallic pipelines irrespective of the conveyed fluid, e.g. liquid or gas, liable to be interfered by high voltage a.c. railway and high voltage a.c. power supply systems. The objective of this standard is to establish:  the procedure for evaluating the e.m. interference;  the interference distance to be considered;  the types of coupling to be considered for operating and fault conditions of the high voltage a.c. electric traction systems and high voltage a.c. power supply systems;  the configurations to be considered for both metallic pipeline and high voltage a.c. electric traction systems or high voltage a.c. power systems;  the limits of the voltages due to the electromagnetic interference;  information on interference situations, calculation methods, measuring methods, mitigation measures, management of interference. This European Standard is applicable to all new metallic pipelines and all new high voltage a.c. electric traction systems and high voltage a.c. power supply systems and all major modifications that may change significantly the interference effect. This European Standard only relates to phenomena at the fundamental power frequency (e.g. 50 Hz or 16,7 Hz). This European Standard does not apply to:  all aspects of corrosion,  the coupling from a.c. railway and power supply systems with nominal voltages less than or equal to 1 kV,  interference effects on the equipment not electrically connected to the pipeline.

This European Standard specifies requirements for protective provisions against the effects of stray currents, which result from the operation of d.c. traction systems. As experience for several decades has not shown evident corrosion effects from a.c. traction systems and actual investigations are not completed, this European Standard only deals with stray currents flowing from a d.c. traction system. This European Standard applies to all metallic fixed installations which form part of the traction system, and also to any other metallic components located in any position in the earth, which can carry stray currents resulting from the operation of the railway system. This European Standard applies to all new d.c. lines and to all major revisions to existing d.c. lines. The principles may also be applied to existing electrified transportation systems where it is necessary to consider the effects of stray currents. It provides design requirements to allow maintenance. The range of application includes: a) railways, b) guided mass transport systems such as: 1) tramways, 2) elevated and underground railways, 3) mountain railways, 4) trolleybus systems, and 5) magnetically levitated systems, which use a contact line system, c) material transportation systems.
