Effect of Earth on Capacitance of Transmission Line

Effect of Earth on Capacitance of Transmission Line: In calculating the Effect of Earth on Capacitance of Transmission Line, the presence of earth was ignored, so far. The effect of earth on Capacitance of Transmission Line can be conveniently taken into account by the method of images. Method of Images: The electric field of transmission […]

Capacitance of a Three Phase Line Unsymmetrical Spacing

Capacitance of a Three Phase Line Unsymmetrical Spacing: Figure 3.7 shows the three identical conductors of radius r of a Capacitance of a Three Phase Line Unsymmetrical Spacing. It is assumed that the line is fully transposed. As the conductors are rotated cyclically in the three sections of the transposition cycle, correspondingly three expressions can […]

Capacitance of Two Wire Line

Capacitance of Two Wire Line: Consider a Capacitance of Two Wire Line shown in Fig. 3.3 excited from a single-phase source. The line develops equal and opposite sinusoidal charges on the two conductors which can be represented as phasors qa and qb so that qa = — qb. The potential difference Vab can be written […]

Potential Difference between Two Conductors

Potential Difference between Two Conductors of a Group of Parallel Conductors: Figure 3.2 shows Potential Difference between Two Conductors of a group of parallel charged conductors. It is assumed that the conductors are far removed from the ground and are sufficiently removed from each other, i.e. the conductor radii are much smaller than the distances […]

Electric Field Inside a Conductor

Electric Field Inside a Conductor: Imagine an infinitely long straight conductor far removed from other conductors (including earth) carrying a uniform charge of q coulomb/metre length. By symmetry, the equipotential surfaces will be concentric cylinders, while the lines of electrostatic stress will be radial. The Electric Field Inside a Conductor at a distance y from […]
