During1950-1960, Prof. Cao Jianyou, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences,had presided and fulfilled the project of “The research of the very first 25KVPower Supply System of AC Electric Railways in China” which intiallyestablished the single-phase, 50Hz, AC27.5KV traction power supply system ofthe electric railway in China and was formulated as the national standard thatremains the most advanced traction power supply system of artery electricrailway by now. The school was also leader of the first contactlessremote-control device for electric railways of
Over the past years, we’ve achieved fruitful achievements in a number of fields,including Traction Power Supply System of Electric Railways, Monitoring andDispatching Automation System of Eletric railways, Microcomputer RelayProtection and Substation Automation Technology, Inspection of Power Qualityand Overhead Contact Line, Power Tration and Eletrical Drives, MagneticSuspension Technique and Maglev Train, High Voltage and Insulation Technology,On-Line Monitor and Insulation Inspection Device for Eletrical Equipment,Protection & Control of Power System, Intelligent Information Processing,Autonomous Decentralized System, etc.. Also we’ve undertaken many state,provincial and ministerial scientific projects or key engineering projects,such as National 973 Subtopic, National 863 Hi-tech Project, National KeyProject, National Natural Science Foundation of China, major Scientific Projectof the Ministry of Railways. In addition, we’ve published a great number ofhigh-level academic papers, won more than 20 state and provincial Scie-techProgress Award. The annual research fund of the school is amounting to overRMB40 million.
