The DC harmonics of the propulsion power supply system on the Taipei Mass Rapid Transit System (TMRTS) are characterized. This study applies a new measurement method based on the railway magnetic field measurement technique, to record the DC current harmonics of the TMRT system under various operating conditions. Analysis of the data obtained through these field measurements reveals the presence of both typical and atypical harmonics while the trains are running. The monitored information from the TMRTS during dynamic operation helps engineers (planners) to identify how many orders and levels of harmonics may be present.
