Its major function is to transport electric energy, with minimal losses, from the power sources to the load centers, usually separated by long distances. The design of a transmission line depends on four electrical parameters: Series resistance Series inductance Shunt capacitance Shunt conductance

The series resistance relies basically on the physical composition of the conductor at a given temperature. The series inductance and shunt capacitance are produced by the presence of magnetic and electric fields around the conductors, and depend on their geometrical arrangement. The shunt conductance is due to leakage currents flowing across insulators and air. As leakage current is considerably small compared to nominal current, it is usually neglected, and therefore, shunt conductance is normally not considered for the transmission line modeling.

Equivalent Circuit Once evaluated, the line parameters are used to model the transmission line and to perform design calculations. The arrangement of the parameters (equivalent circuit model) representing the line depends upon the length of the line.

A transmission line is defined as a short-length line if its length is less than 80 km (50 miles). In this case, the shut capacitance effect is negligible and only the resistance and inductive reactance are considered. Assuming balanced conditions, the line can be represented by the equivalent circuit of a single phase with resistance R, and inductive reactance XL in series (series impedance), as shown in Fig. 13.1. If the transmission line has a length between 80 km (50 miles) and 240 km (150 miles), the line is considered a medium-length line and its single-phase equivalent circuit can be represented in a nominal p circuit configuration [1]. The shunt capacitance of the line is divided into two equal parts, each placed at the sending and receiving ends of the line. Figure 13.2 shows the equivalent circuit for a medium-length line. Both short- and medium-length transmission lines use approximated lumpedparameter models. However, if the line is larger than 240 km, the model must consider parameters uniformly distributed along the line. The appropriate series impedance and shunt capacitance are found by solving the corresponding differential equations, where voltages and currents are described as a function of distance and time. Figure 13.3 shows the equivalent circuit for a long line. The calculation of the three basic transmission line parameters is presented in the following sections

The AC resistance of a conductor in a transmission line is based on the calculation of its DC resistance. If DC current is flowing along a round cylindrical conductor, the current is uniformly distributed over its cross-section area and its DC resistance is evaluated by

The current flows from the source to the load in conductor A and returns in conductor B (IA ¼ IB). The magnetic flux generated by one conductor links the other conductor. The total flux linking conductor A, for instance, has two components: (a) the flux generated by conductor A and (b) the flux generated by conductor B which links conductor A.
