Electrification of the far eastern railway Volochaevka II - Komsomolsk-on-Amur-Vanino (Toki)

Ю. А. Громашова


  The Far Eastern Federal District of Russia on the verge of economic development. The high potential of the region is due to the geographical location and rich mineral deposits. Realizing the potential demands of the transport sector in the region. The most promising is the artery of the Baikal-Amur railway undertaking to enter the market of the Asia-Pacific region through the ports of Vanino and Sovetskaya Gavan.BAM Construction took place in the postwar years to facilitate design rules, land has a heavy profile slope to 27 ‰. Current technical condition of the sites studied can carry 20 million tonnes a year from 100 applications.
  Holding company "Russian Railways" measures have been developed to increase the capacity and carrying capacity: lengthening receiving-departure tracks, construction of sidings, construction of the second track, etc.
  The paper considers the electrification of BAM as a way to increase the carrying capacity factor and energy development in the region. The analysis section of a total length of 821 km. On the basis of technical and eco-nomic evaluation of selected AC traction power supply 2 × 25kV. When choosing the location of traction substa-tions accounted specific line of an external power supply, the data path and the longitudinal profile of the prox-imity of settlements. As a result of calculating the actual bandwidth at bottlenecks stretch increased from 20 pairs of trains and 55 pairs of trains per day and allows for traffic volume to 126.5 million tonnes.


The Baikal-Amur Mainline; Vaninsko-Sovgavansky freight industrial center; electrification; traction power supply system; traction substations.
