READING A SAG TENSION TEMPERATURE CHART
Example Conductor Stringing Tension: Span Length: MES of Strain Section: Temperature: MOON (7/4.75 AAC) Table 220 74m 108m 50°C Solution 1. Select the Sag-Tension-Temperature chart for AAC conductor at stringing table T220, as shown below. 2. Plot the MES length of 108m on the horizontal axis – Point A. Always ‘enter’ the chart from the MES. 3. Trace upwards vertically to the 50°C curve – Point B. 4. Now we have established the tension in the line, which we can read by tracing a horizontal line across to the tension scale for MOON at the left – Point C. Reading from the chart, the tension in the conductor is 1.53kN. 5. To determine the sag, we now plot the actual span length of 74m on the horizontal axis – Point D. 6. Trace upward to the horizontal line showing tension, at Point E. Looking at the sag contours on the chart, we note that the sag is slightly less than 1.5m – 1.49m say.

(a) Determine the sag and the tension in the conductor under the above (no wind) condiitions. (b) Determine the conductor tension at 15°C under wind c o n d i t i o n s . A n s w e r
