A method for the sag-tension calculation in electrical overhead lines
(Praise Worthy Prize, 2011-06)
The sag and tension values of overhead conductors are influenced by the creep developed during the line lifetime. This paper presents a method for the sag-tension calculation of overhead conductors that is characterised ...
Influence of the conductor temperature error on the overhead line ampacity monitoring systems
(The Institution of Engineering and Technology, 2011-04)
Many real time overhead line ampacity monitoring systems are based on the calculation of the wind speed. The wind speed is obtained from the conductor temperature. The conductor temperature can be measured directly or it ...
Overhead conductor monitoring system for the evaluation of the low sag behavior
The paper describes a monitoring system for the evaluation of the low sag behavior of the overhead conductors in operating lines. The monitoring system measures the conductor tension and temperature and it also measures ...
Methods for Increasing the Rating of Overhead Lines
At the present time, there is great pressure to increase the power flow in existing right of ways using existing infrastructure as far as possible. In this paper, the diverse options for increasing the rating of overhead ...
Hardware and software architecture for overhead line rating monitoring
Real time monitoring in both electrical transmission and distribution lines is an interesting option for knowing the electrical load level of these lines. The information about the load level allows alleviating the overloaded ...
