NGCP was also able to replace 25,910 meters of transmission line conductor cables, recondition towers, which were leaning or had missing parts, and conduct a massive clearing operation along the right-of-way corridor of the entire line.
1 depicts 1 segment of the streamline as the power line conductor element in Cartesian coordinate system.
For symmetric arrangements with conductors placed on the vertexes of an equilateral triangle the same expression can be used by letting d = [square root of 3]s, where s is the distance from the line conductor center of gravity (Figure 2).

MORESCO-1 experienced nine (9) causes of system loss: (1) line conductor so small, (2) transformer not load centered, (3) improperly sized transformer, (4) poor power factor, (5) unbalanced loading between phases, (6) poor maintenance and operation practices of kwhr meters, (7) poor quality meters, (8) electricity pilferages, and (9) poor administration of reading and billing.
"The cut was due to a fault with an overhead line conductor, and by 8.45am we were able to get the vast majority back on, although 58 homes in the close vicinity of the fault were not reconnected until later in the day.
This potential at the surface of the HV line conductor is equal to its phase voltage.
Transmission line conductor loss calculation are often done using the incremental inductance rule.
