Guide for Overhead Alternating Current (AC) Transmission Line Design
This Guide covers basic principles, methods and experience for designing of 110 kV to 1000 kV AC overhead transmission lines, and may also be used as reference for the design of lower voltage overhead transmission lines. This Guide consists of the introduction, definitions, meteorological design criteria, electrical design, structural design criteria, design of foundations, and experiment result and design experience. This Guide is a listing of the information and procedure that is required during the design of AC transmission line, and provides guidance for transmission line designers in data collection and design stage.
