Wood-Pole Structures
1010607 Wood-Pole StructuresStructures supporting electric lines must be designed to support conductors, insulators, and shield wires in a manner that provides adequate electrical clearances and ample mechanical strength as specified in the National Electrical Safety Code (ANSI C2), published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. Safe clearances must be maintained when the conductor temperature is elevated as a result of large currents flowing in a circuit and when the conductors are ice-coated and strong winds are blowing. Common types of structures include wood poles, reinforced-concrete poles, steel poles, steel towers, and aluminum towers. The total cost of th…
