IEEE Guide for Overhead AC Transmission Line Design

Methods for designing 110 kV to 1000 kV ac overhead transmission lines are provided and may also be used as reference for the design of lower voltage overhead transmission lines. The principles and procedures for designing weather-resistant conductor, ground wire, insulator, structure, and foundation of ac transmission overhead lines are specified.

P1863

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.

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.


No Active Standards

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.


No Superseded Standards

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.


No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.
