This study presents a forward/backward sweep (FBS) load flow method for AC autotransformer (AT)-fed electrical railway networks considering dynamic movement of trains. Field measurements of Tehran-Golshahr suburban railway are compared with simulation results. Moreover, effects of the time headway reduction on this suburban railway and its transmission power supply system are investigated. Then, to minimise power losses, two methods of the reactive power compensation are studied; the pulse-width-modulated (PWM) trains and a static var compensator (SVC). For the aforementioned cases, fluctuations of the displacement factors (DISF), defined in p-q-r theory are simulated at the point of common coupling (PCC). MATLAB software is used for programming and simulations.
