Design Edit The aluminium alloy and temper used for the outer strands in the United States and Canada is normally H19 and elsewhere is H19, each with To extend the service life of the steel strands used for the conductor core they are normally galvanized, or coated with another material to prevent corrosion. The diameters of the strands used for both the aluminum and steel strands vary for different ACSR conductors. ACSR cable still depends on the tensile strength of the aluminium; it is only reinforced by the steel.

How do you calculate size of Al conductor of 11KV line? Generally cable sizing is taken with respective to voltage current length from source, nature of laying, ambient conditions etc. You said its conductor so it may be overhead conductors with no insulation. These lines are usually designed to carry max amps of Most electrical wires use unalloyed copper.

The exception is high-power overhead lines that use aluminium for its low density, which means there is a lot less mass for the towers to support, so they are lighter and less expensive.

Aluminium overhead cables are either ACSR - aluminium core, steel reinforced, which uses multi-strand cables with steel strands in the centre; or AAAC which is all-aluminimum alloy conductor. AAAC cables use an aluminium-magnesium-silicon alloy with silicon 0. The purpose of adding other elements is to increase the tensile strength of the conductors so they can be tensioned up without too much dangling. What is the thickness of high voltage line and What is the relation between voltage and thickness of conductor?

Stranded cables of up to 1. Both types are stranded, and the ACSR type uses steel for the inner layers of strands. Two popular types used for grid distribution in the UK are Lynx, with mm2 cross-section area of aluminium, capable of amps in the winter, and UPAS with mm2 AAAC that can carry up to amps in the winter.

There is no real relationship between conductor thickness and voltage, but in general single conductors are used up to kV, then twin conductors are used at kV and quad at the UK maximum kV. That is four parallel wires closely spaced with X-shaped spacers.

A normal line of pylons supporting a pair of circuits can carry MVA. These aluminium cables would have a total mass of 24 tons per kilometre. So, in this sense, there is a relationship between conductor diameter and voltage levels. The alternative is to use bundled conductors.

This all contributes to line losses. Why do you use burette to measure liquid during titration? Any variable amount of liquid can be measured by weight mass balance or by volume. A titration is mostly carried out as volumetric analysis method. An INVariable amount is measured by a volumetric, standardized pipet and for Variable volumes a calibrated buret is used to reach high precision standards of AAAC.
