From [4], [13], [14] the self inductance for one phase conductor is given by (10)
* Phase conductor lines are parallel current filaments of infinite length and infinitely small diameter.
Each sub-area should divided into mesh with the length of dx (1/8 of Xspan) in x direction and dy (10 m) in y direction (length of each sub-area is half of span length and width of each sub-area is a distance from center of line that the leaders outside of that distance will not strike the phase conductor" [9]).
A closed form solution for three phase lines with polygonal phase conductor arrangement has been derived in [11] by using double complex numbers with two imaginary units.
Emergency teams have established that a phase conductor was broken, due to its twisting around the nieghboring post.
Simulation is carried out for movement of metallic particles in a three-phase bus duct with reduced phase conductor diameter with a view to obtain optimum size of conductor for reliable operation.
The current in the neutral can actually be greater than the current in any of the phase conductors. Especially for the "C" circuits, neutrals either need to be larger than the phase conductors or separate neutrals are needed for each phase conductor.
Explaining the ABC, the relevant officials told the meeting that it was overhead power line using several insulated phase conductors bundled tightly together, usually with a bare neutral conductor.
