This paper presents a harmonic analysis model for the Korean high-speed railway. Since the harmonic current flows through the catenary system, the catenary system must be modeled exactly to analyze harmonic current amplifications and the total harmonic distortion. In the present work, the line constants of five conductors in the catenary system were calculated by the reduction method, and each subsystem, which consisted of the Korean high-speed railway system, was modeled by the eight-port representation. Simulation results using the proposed model were compared to field test data of the Korean high-speed railway system, and the accuracy of the harmonic analysis model was verified. Also, the harmonic characteristics of the Korean high-speed railway system are presented.
