Co-phase continuous power supply system (CCPSS) can completely eliminate electric phase break to realize the co-phase continuous power supply in the traction substation, thus the impact on the power quality of the utility grid can be greatly reduced. In this paper, double-loop control strategy, which involves the load current feedback for three-phase pulse width modification (PWM) rectifier and single-phase inverter in the traction substation were proposed. Also, the control strategy with neutral-point-potential balance for three-level rectifier as well as the constant V/f control for asynchronous motor of electric locomotive was proposed. A network-locomotive coupling model of an AC-DC-AC traction substation and electric locomotive was built in this paper using PSCAD/EMTDC. Thorough simulations were conducted to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed control strategies.
