Stringing Line Conductors
1010607 Stringing Line ConductorsThe installation of conductors on poles and towers must be accomplished in a manner to provide an electric circuit that will operate reliably and not endanger the public. Conductors with surface scratches or defects energized at high voltages will have corona losses and generate radio-interference voltages that will be transmitted through the atmosphere.
Slack Conductor Stringing Slack conductor stringing is limited to short lengths of line operating at low voltages utilizing conductors with a weatherproof covering or installations where scratches of the conductor are not important. Scratches …
