Overhead Conductor - HV

Tratos has now developed, tested and successfully installed a completely new hybrid design of conductor for use in overhead lines based upon a high load carrying carbon fibre core with two compact, space saving, segmental thermal resistant aluminium alloy (AT1) wire layers, helically applied around in accordance with IEC 62004. This avoids the use of traditional conductor designs, based on existing technology, where any increase in transmitted power results directly in either an increase in size and hence the weight of the conductor, or an increase in the operating temperature above the recommended maximum operating temperature.

These new innovative hybrid conductors are especially suitable as a fast and cost effective replacement for traditional ACSR conductors in short and medium spans in all topographical locations.

BETTER BY DESIGN – Current carrying capacity is twice that of traditional designs. Reduced weight and strain allows existing pylons and standard installation techniques to be used.

MORE STRENGTH, LESS SAG – Greater tensile strength to withstand snow, ice and wind loadings. Less sag and increased ground clearance at maximum current rating.

ECONOMIC BENEFIT – Reduced cost and easier installation alongside increased power transmission
