1010603 Ampacity of Overhead Line Conductors
Introduction Electrical system power transfer faces a number of technical limits related to transmission line reactance, including considerations of voltage drop and system stability after faults. Power flow can also be restricted by the heating effect of I2R Joule loss in the phase conductors. These thermal restrictions may be Economical—to improve system efficiency by eliminating losses. Technical—to control metallurgical changes such as annealing in conductors and joints over the line lifetime.
