What is Skin Effect and Proximity Effect?

What is Skin Effect and Proximity Effect?: What is Skin Effect and Proximity Effect? – The distribution of current throughout the cross-section of a conductor is uniform only when DC is passing through it. On the contrary when AC is flowing through a conductor, the current is non-uniformly distributed over the cross-section in a manner …

AC Resistance and DC Resistance Relation

AC Resistance and DC Resistance Relation: Though the contribution of line resistance to series line impedance can be neglected in most cases, it is the main source of line power loss. Thus while considering transmission line economy, the presence of line resistance must be considered. The effective AC resistance is given by Where I is …

Bundled Conductors in EHV Transmission Lines

Bundled Conductors in EHV Transmission Lines: It is economical to transmit large chunks of power over long distances by employing EHV lines. However, the line voltages that can be used are severely limited by the phenomenon of corona. Corona, in fact, is the result of ionization of the atmosphere when a certain field intensity (about …

Inductance of Three Phase Line with Unsymmetrical Spacing

Inductance of Three Phase Line with Unsymmetrical Spacing: The basic equations developed can, however, be easily adapted to the calculation of the Inductance of three phase line. Figure 2.10 shows the conductors of a three phase line with unsymmetrical spacing. Assume that there is no neutral wire, so that Unsymmetrical spacing causes the flux linkages …

Inductance of Composite Conductor Lines

Inductance of Composite Conductor Lines: Future 2.6 shows such a single-phase line comprising inductance of composite conductor lines A and B with A having n parallel filaments and B having m’ parallel filaments. Though the inductance of each filament will be somewhat different (their resistances will be equal if conductor diameters are chosen to be …

ACSR Conductor (Aluminium Conductor Steel Reinforced)

ACSR Conductor (Aluminium Conductor Steel Reinforced): ACSR Conductor – So far we have considered transmission lines consisting of single solid cylindrical conductors for forward and return paths. To provide the necessary flexibility for stringing, conductors used in practice are always stranded except for very small cross-sectional areas. Stranded conductors are composed of strands of wire, …

Flux Linkages of an Isolated Current Carrying Conductor

Flux Linkages of an Isolated Current Carrying Conductor: Transmission lines are composed of parallel conductors which, for all practical purposes, can be considered as infinitely long. Let us first develop expressions for flux linkages of a long isolated Current Carrying Conductor with return path lying at infinity. This system forms a single-turn circuit, flux linking …
