However. load flow results shown the voltage levels and voltage phasors are also discussed. From the simulation results. it has been shown that the Test Systems with six-phase single-circuit transmission has a better stability limits compare to the three-phase double-circuit transmission in the sense of power transfer capability and voltage drops. So. Besides. Six-phase transmission appears to be the most capable solution to the need to increase the capability of existing transmission lines and at the same time. In the end justifications are made for the extra cost of conversion and inversion units for generation of six-phase power in transmission systems. These studies have been performed in sufficient detail to determine how the six-phase conversion will affect steady state operation and system stability. In this project. Constrains on the availability of land and planning permission for overhead transmission lines have renewed interest in techniques to increase the power carrying capacity of existing right-of-ways (ROW). EHV systems have been growing rapidly and widely throughout the world because of their efficiency and economy but EHV systems might have adverse impacts on environment like corona loss. which is undergoing rapid industrialization. audible noise and formation of noise. this conversion will have impacts on the power system operations.Abstract Electricity is considered as the dynamo for a country. One of the main advantages of six-phase transmission is that a six-phase line can carry up to 73% more electric power than a three-phase double-circuit line on the same right-of-way of transmission line. investigation is made in time domain considering conversion of three-phase double-circuit to six-phase single-circuit transmission system by using SimPowerSystems in MATLAB/Simulink® program. xvii . effects of electric and magnetic fields are also included in this project. radio interference. respond to the worries related to electromagnetic fields.

Pandya. Its need for industrial use is increasing day by day. increasing of transmission operating voltage will produce strong electric and magnetic fields at ground level with possible biological aspect and environmental effects which necessitate large Right-of-Way (ROW). engineers are looking for some alternative i. One of the main advantages of 6-Φ transmission is that a 6-Φ line can carry up to 73% more electric power than a 3-Φ double-circuit line on the same transmission 1 . In high phase order. However. Kelkar [1]. R.B. In the past. the enhanced power system capability with the increase in 73% load was discussed by A. Due to the high costs involved in the installation of new transmission lines.Chapter 1 Introduction Chapter 1 Introduction 1. Barnes. to enhance the power transfer capability in the existing system. Since then. 6-Φ transmission is proved to be most reliable for increasing the capability of existing transmission lines and at the same time it deals with electromagnetic fields as well. That requires new generators and transmission systems to be installed.1 Research Background Electric power has become a basic need of humanity. D.e.C. Among the HPO techniques.S. The increased interest in HPO electric power transmission over past thirty years can be traced on a CIGRE paper published by L. the concept of HPO transmission has become vast and it is being described in several papers and reports. With the increase of energy demand as rapid growth of World’s economy has caused an increased on the demand of electricity supply and load currents of transmission lines. Barthold and H. increase in power transmission capability has been accomplished by increasing system voltages.

Six phase transmission is conceived as a technique to increase the power transfer capability of existing ROW space. Power transmission capacity 2.K. Magnetic fields 3. six phase transformers These analyses will be performed on various test systems which include IEEE Test Systems in detail using simulation program like MATLAB. S. During 1993-94 Mr.2 Literature Assessments A lot of work is done on high phase order as during 1981-83 Dr P. as they are applicable to a particular simple system. carried transient stability analysis of a 6Φ line using the standard Byrd & Pichard equation which yields closed form expressions and lacks the generality. Moreover. how much 6-Φ conversion will affect steady state operation. Cost effectiveness 5. It was found that conversion of an existing 3-ɸ double circuit to 6-ɸ single transmission line results in line inductance increment and capacitance decrement. the current research results to have a better picture and clearer understanding of the 6-Φ power transmission system.S.Chapter 1 Introduction [2]. investigated and found different methods of 6Φ systems. For this reason. maximum power at the receiving end will progressively enhance maintain the voltage stability at various power factors of load. fault current duties. and system stability. and calculations of inductance and capacitance values for 6Φ lines. 6-ɸ single line conversion. study of the analysis of six phases is accomplished during normal operating conditions for electric power system considering 3-Φ-to-6-Φ conversions of selected transmission lines in an electric energy system. 1. However the minimum line length at which power transfer capability is limited by voltage stability concern is dramatically decreased in 6-ɸ single line compared to 3-ɸ double circuit due to conversion transformers reactance effect. Also.S.A. Following analysis will be performed to know. mathematical modeling of 3Φ/6Φ transformers. 2 .Mishra. In this research. it is found that voltage stability as a recent challenging subject was analyzed..

much has been added to the available knowledge base on HPO transmission primarily in the areas of feasibility considerations. Lower capital and operating costs of transmission. C. Allegheny Power Services Corporation (APS) in cooperation with West Virginia University began seriously investigating the details of an HPO designed in1976. 5. Smaller line-voltage drops 3. The DC transmission tie line acts as an asynchronous link between the two rigid systems eliminating the instability problem inherent in the AC links. Since this corner stone work. DC transmission is especially advantageous when two remotely located large systems are to be connected.Chapter 1 Introduction The incentives for increasing transmission voltages have been: 1. it may be economical to convert the EHV AC to EHV DC. Increment in transmission distance and transmission capacity For the purpose of transmitting power over very long distances. showed that the HPO transmission should be considered as a viable alternative to the conventional 3 . Reduction in line losses 4. analysis of system characteristics and system protection. One variable which relates to that efficiency is the number of phases. HVDC lines have no reactance and are capable of transferring more power for the same conductor size than AC lines. Clark[6] in 1943. the first modern High-Voltage DC (HVDC) transmission line was put into operation in Sweden between Vastervik and the island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea. This is based on the fact that. Reduction in ROW 2. The work had focused the industry on the practical aspect of concepts that were first explained by Fostesque [5] in 1918 and E. In the late 1970s. W. using converters we first convert AC to DC and invert it back to AC at the other end. The main disadvantage of the DC is the production of harmonics which requires filtering. Guyker [7] extended the transmission concept by describing fault analysis methodologies and symmetrical component theory. Their studies. the EHV DC has lower losses in transmission line and also has no skin effect [4]. In 1954. They also assessed the feasibility of upgrading an existing 138kV line to 6-Φ to increase the power transmission capability by 73% while reducing conductor field gradients and improving system stability which potentially could obtain public acceptance the nominal voltage of the line would remain unchanged. funded partly by the National Science Foundation. and a large amount of reactive power compensation required at both ends of the line.

and load flow and system stability. Some of the advantages of using the 6Φ transmission system are increased transmission capability. it has been shown that the 6-Φ transmission system can provide the same power transfer capability with lower ROW or can transfer 73% more power for the same ROW as compared to the 3-Φ double-circuit system. in addition to enhanced power transmission capability. 4 . Further. but stopped short of actually demonstrating the technologies on an operating line. Experiences with the use of the PSCAD/MATLAB software have been positive and have enhanced the quality of research and teaching. provides low voltage gradients. thus eliminating the incentive to pursue increased power transfer capabilities. however through their initiative. Six-phase transmission. In this project the models of 3-Φ double-circuit transmission and 6-Φ single-circuit transmission models by has been developed using MATALB program. APS covered the way for future research. lower corona effects. corona and field effects. They completed detailed analysis of HPO designs and protection philosophies. 1.Chapter 1 Introduction 3-Φ transmission system. Besides. According to new idea the feasibility of 6-Φ transmission system is represented in terms of insulation performance. Load projections for their service area were reduced. radio noise and audio noise from the 6-Φ overhead lines. the simulation based approaches proved to be very effective. Simulation has been performed on these two transmission lines. This study has given verification to available methods for the calculation of electric and magnetic fields. lower insulation8 requirements and better voltage regulation. increased utilization of ROW. Comparative studies for 3-Φ double-circuit and 6-Φ single-circuit transmission lines have been implemented to get better one out of the two for future projects. smaller tower structures reduce the right of way requirements. The project was abandoned.4 Objectives and Scope The objective of this project is to provide a solution for the limited Power Transmission Capability of existing transmission lines and to eliminate the legal and environmental constraints involved in the construction of new transmission lines in the form of Electric and Magnetic field Gradients and Right of Ways respectively.

Power and Phasor Relationships. 5 .Chapter 1 Introduction 1. In chapter 3. Also it is concluded that electric field is less for 6-ɸ than 3-ɸ. Here we have established the definitions for system Voltages. modeling. In this chapter 2 we have discussed the six-phase power system in detail. corona loss. In this chapter 6. Chapter 5 states that size of insulator required in six phase transmission towers will be less as compared to the three-phase double circuit and size of tower will also be compact as ground clearances and mid span clearances will be reduced. Later a cost analysis is performed in which a 500kV six-phase line is compared for relative economics with a 500 kV three-phase double circuit design. we first discuss the modifications required in conversion of a three-phase double circuit transmission line to a six-phase line and discussing the savings/expenses in terms of cost in all the equipment. and analysis of simulation of 3-ɸ to 6-ɸ conversion of selected transmission line in electric power system. 5 and 6th. In chapter 4 modeling and comparison of three-phase double circuit and six-phase single circuit are performed in Simulink /MATLAB®. All the work is this research is presented in chapter 4 . Load flow analysis and power transfer capability comparisons are also performed. six phase transformer and six phase transmission line. TV interference and formation of ozone due to corona will also reduce as electric field strengths are diminished.5 Thesis structure This thesis is primarily concerned with the understanding. radio interference.

Chapter 2 Six-phase Power Chapter 2 Six-phase Power 2. [8] However. For a Six-phase this becomes six equal magnitude voltage vectors spaced 60o between adjacent phases and so on. Here we have established the definitions for system Voltages. 6 . increase in power transmission capability has been accomplished by increasing system voltages. Power and Phasor Relationships. Six phases have attained more importance than other HPO systems because of its feasibility in application on existing system that is a Three Phase Double Circuit (TPDC) Transmission Line can be converted into a six phase line without making extraordinary modifications. In consideration of the fundamental limits on power transfer capability in a restricted ROW led to the concept of increasing the number of phases in a transmission line system circuit also known as Multiphase system or High Phase Order (HPO) Transmission system. increasing of transmission operating voltage will produce strong electric and magnetic field at ground level with possible biological aspect and environmental effects which necessitate large Rightof-Way (ROW). [9] For three phase system. HPO is defined by number of phases of having equal magnitude of voltage but equally spaced in time. the key to the benefits of HPO transmission system lie in the Line and Phase voltage relationships. In the past.1 Introduction In recent years. Availability of power at generation stations has caused an increase in load currents of transmission lines to supply the growing load. As discussed earlier. this means three equal magnitude voltage vectors spaced 120o from each other. rapid growth of World’s economy has caused an increase on the demand of electricity supply. In this chapter we have discussed the six-phase power system in detail.

This 13 . 2. On the other hand. if a Vphase to neutral (6 phase) is increased to Vline-to-line (3 phase). there is 73% increase in power. when a three-phase double-circuit line is converted to six-phase line.Chapter 2 Six-phase Power increase is in power density. This also results in smaller supporting structures.5 Advantages of Six Phase Power Transmission With the growing concern over the environmental effects of power system. less conductor spacing and low insulation requirement. the main advantage of a six-phase transmission line is that it can carry it can carry up to 73% more electric power transfer capability compare to a threephase system at the same operating voltage. 2.73) times higher than Vphase to neautral (3 phase).

The smaller structures provide increased power transfer for a given ROW.3 Smaller Structure The phase-to-phase voltages between adjacent phases in a six-phase system are lower than the phase-to-phase voltages for a three-phase system for a given phaseto-neutral voltage. Thus.5. This is especially important since ROW is becoming more difficult to obtain and increasingly expensive [12].2 Increased Utilization of Right-of-Way Six-phase transmission increases power density. This advantage permits smaller towers for the same power rating.73 times that of three-phase double circuit transmission line. Besides the troubles caused by the wind induced movements and visual impact can be reduced.Chapter 2 Six-phase Power phenomenon has already been proved in article 2. the minimum spacing between conductors on the six-phase transmission tower is reduced.7: Determining power density Refers to Fig 2.

These categories are phase-to-phase voltages.

With AC power being generated at 3 phase it was logical to transfer that power in a similar manner and hence the three phase power transmission system was born. As stated earlier. it was first proposed as part of an international electrical committee study in 1973.1: Machine Power Vs No. The idea was relatively straight 17 . [12] Figure 3. of Phases The concept of using transmission systems that carry power with more than three phases is a relatively new idea. Generating power with electrical angles less than 120 degrees between phases does not result in a corresponding increase in power output (see Fig 3.1). .

This will make the idea of transmitting power using six-phase transmission system much easier because six conductors of three-phase double-circuit transmission line can be converted to six-phase transmission line. R = G = 0. More accurate calculations can then be made with computer programs for follow-up analysis and design.1 Surge Impedance System limitations on power flow include among other considerations voltage drop and stability.Chapter 3 Production of Six Phase Power and System Components A three-phase double-circuit AC system is used for most transmission lines. However. the equations and concepts shows here can be used for quick and reasonably accurate hand calculations leading to initial designs.

Figure 3.2 Surge Impedance Loading Surge Impedance Loading (SIL) is the power delivered by a lossless line to load resistance equal to the surge impedance √ ⁄ . resistive. 3. Because SIL is a function of square of the phase-to-neutral voltage. it is possible to develop six-phase lines with comparable thermal or surge-impedance loading characteristics to the three33 .16) is commonly called surge impedance for The characteristic impedance a lossless line. SIL is that loading at which VARs generated in the line capacitance cancel the VARs absorbed in the line inductance and is equivalent to the case of an impedance-matched line.3 Line Loadability In practice.23. This line represents either a single-phase line or one phase-to-neutral of balanced threephase or six-phase line. While a transmission system would not be constructed according to the curve in Fig 3. At rated line voltage.5. the real power delivered (SIL) is given by [16]: (3. an increase in voltage can have a significant impact on the line SIL.

4 Stability Performance The power flow through any transmission line. The appropriate comparison to use is related to the specific application. the power decreases with increasing angle. Increasing phase-to-neutral voltage by a six-phase conversion increases the per-unit positive-sequence impedance.5. which results in a greater system disturbance in the event of a line trip.23: Surge impedance loading characteristic curve [16] 3. 34 . thus generally enhancing system stability in the same manner as system stability is enhanced by any conversion that results in a higher line operating voltage. a condition of voltage instability.Chapter 3 Production of Six Phase Power and System Components phase alternative.18) The power flow is maximum when δ = 90°. this statement is somewhat of an over simplification. especially whether the line limits the system or the system limits the line. Of course. System changes which reduce δ for the same power enhanced the system stability. If the angle δ exceeds 90°. because there is additional margin for the system to swing without exceeding the 90° limit. The basic effect of a six-phase line on system stability is similar to the effect of a higher-voltage three phase line and must be evaluated by the same type of stability analysis. neglecting the effect of line resistance is given by [16]: (3.

construction of new electrical power transmission lines are strongly constrained by the Right of Way Requirement. The up-gradation of existing three-phase double circuit transmission line to sixphase transmission line eliminates the construction of new line and hence ROW requirement. Increasing cost of land and legal issues involved in the acquiring land have compelled electric design engineers to look for alternatives to transmit power to the distribution stations. In the calculation 57 . Moreover. the construction of new six-phase transmission line using compact structures requires less land for its construction.1 Magnetic Field Basics An electric charge has an electric field. Basic definitions and equations are described first followed by the case study of six-phase transmission line. Now we start from calculating the magnetic field. The magnetic field is considered as static in case of DC transmission and quasi-static in the case of AC transmission lines. Both of these elements directly depend on the electric and magnetic field gradients around a transmission line.Chapter 5 Electromagnetic Field Gradients Chapter 5 Electromagnetic Field Gradients In the recent era the. while an electric current produces a magnetic field. ROW requirement directly depends upon the size of tower structures and electromagnetic field limits imposed by the Environment Safety Authorities. A MATLAB program has been developed for the calculation and plotting of Six-phase transmission line electric and magnetic field. In this chapter we analyze the Electric and Magnetic field across a Six-phase transmission line and compare it with the three-phase double circuit transmission line under same tower structures. 5. One of the major advantages of six-phase transmission is less ROW requirement.

so less conductor spacing is required in six-phase conductors. Magnetic field around three-phase double circuit transmission line vanishes rapidly and disappears completely after a distance of 20m from line. 4. 6. and then it decays slowly. the electric field is considered as quasi static although they vary sinusoidally with time at power frequency. 5. But its strength between conductors in less than that of three-phase double circuit line.1 Introduction of Electric fields The voltage applied to the conductor of a transmission line produce electric field in the region around the conductor and of course between the conductor and ground. Magnetic field strength between the conductors is less for a six-phase transmission line as compared to that of three-phase double circuit transmission line. even after 20m from the center of the line it sustains a little amount of magnetic field strength. 3. but it has a benefit that compact structures can be made that require less conductor spacing. six-phase transmission line have no trouble in feasibility regarding magnetic field concerns. Magnetic field around six-phase line is decreases rapidly in start.3. but the value is less than 2A/m which is environmentally safe. 7. 2.3 Analysis of transmission line conductor surface voltage gradients computations 5. Magnetic Field of a six-phase line with increased load is greater than magnetic field in three-phase double circuit line. So. Magnetic field strength between the conductors of six-phase line is less than that of three-phase line. For DC transmission line the electric field is purely static field in case of AC transmission line. Thus the frequency of variation of the field is sufficiently low to permit the consideration of the electric field 66 . 5. even after 20m distance from the center of line. From above statements following conclusions can be made: 1. Magnetic field of the six-phase line sustains a very small value.Chapter 5 Electromagnetic Field Gradients 3. Six-phase line magnetic field is less concentrated but sustains long as we move away from transmission line.

The analysis of transmission line conductor surface voltage gradients requires an understanding of the basic assumption and theorems. The horizontal spacing between the conductors remains constant at a specified value and the height above ground of each conductor is an average value equal to H + 2/3 s.3.2 Basic Equations It has been found experimentally that the force between two stationary electric point charges Qa and Qb a) acts along the line joining the two charges. infinitely long circular cylinders parallel to each other and to the ground plane. certain basic assumptions are involved in all existing methods for calculating the electric field in the vicinity of transmission line conductors. finite ground conductivity etc. 5. The influence of the conductor support structures and of any objects in the vicinity of the conductors is neglected. conducting plane surface. let’s start with coulomb’s law for electrostatic forces because it is fundamental. where H is the height above ground at the support point and S is the conductor sag corresponding to the mean annual temperature. The calculation of the electric field produced by transmission lines is a complex problem because of the following practical aspects: conductor sag. uneven conductor and ground surface. coulombs 67 . horizontal.

Rn, placed parallel to and at heights of h1, h2,….hn above the ground plane, as shown in figure 2.8. by using the ground plane for imaging, the problem is transformed into that of solving the electric field of pairs of parallel cylindrical conductors in finite space with equal and opposite voltage applied to them. The analysis shows that the charge distribution on each conductor can be represented by means of a line charge located at a small distance away from the center of the conductor. The distance is a direct function of H/r. for large values of H/r, as in the case of practical transmission line configuration the line charge is located very close to the center of the conductor.

Conductor are assumed to be equipotential Generally, a practical high voltage transmission line conductor can consist of several sub conductors. In this case, each conductor bundle is replaced by a single conductor with an equivalent capacitance the radius of the equivalent conductor for a regular bundle of n sub conductors is

Where n = number of sub conductors r = sub conductor radius, meter R = bundle radius, meter The simplification will not affect the accuracy of results at or near ground level, even though accurate calculation of voltage gradients at the conductor surface cannot be made using this model. As we have discussed is the previous section the electric field strength at radius r from an infinite line. ∫ ∫ (5.29)

Considering the system in fig based on the theory of images the ground plane may be replaced by an image conductor of radius r located at a distance H below the ground. The heights of conductor above ground as well as the distance between the individual conductors are very large compared to radii of conductors. Therefore the charge on each conductor is then represented by a line charge located at its center. The potential at a point on the surface of conductor in Fig is expressed as that produced by the line charge Q and its image charge –Q.

but may have excessive corona in actual operation. a piece of hardware may test successfully in the laboratory. Thus. because the electric field stress is actually more typical of a 345 kV line than a 115 kV line I ' The conductor shoes used on the original Wshaped spacers installed in the compact section were of the standard design with screw threads and nuts protruding from the bottom of the clamps. it is not a complete test.  With the bucket alongside the spacer. At this elevation unaided audible noise could be heard in fair weather coming off the line. It was not possible to determine which conductors were primarily contributing to the sound heard by ear. not electric field. An ultrasonic sound detector and VHF radio receiver were used to verify that the spacer hardware and fiber optic cable were contributing to the elevated noise levels. Also. Traditional laboratory tests for corona acceptability involve setting up a specimen in a laboratory and energizing at some percentage above normal operating voltage to check for corona inception.  Using the ultrasonic detector from the bucket between the tower and the first in-span spacer. instead of the corona-free variety. because it is based on voltage. There was also a little noise off the upper four phases which seemed to be coming from the ends of 81 . These tests were performed from a bucket at approximately 45 feet above the ground. However. the electric field is greater for the same voltage. The bottom two phases clearly manifested significantly greater electrical discharge of a different type than the other four phases.Chapter 5 Electromagnetic Field Gradients Corona is a function of the electric field at the surface of the conductor and hardware. Measurements with these types of instruments taken in the compact section revealed the following:  The ultrasonic detector revealed a raspy sound from the bottom two phases similar to gap discharges. This method has worked well for many years. the ultrasonic noise was greatest off the bottom phases. with the maximum at the spacers. It is frequently necessary to specify EHV-type corona free hardware for use on compact 115 kV lines. When conductors are more closely spaced than conventional design. fiber optic cable was initially wrapped on the bottom two phases the entire length from Goudey to Oakdale. These were suspected of contributing to the elevated radio noise levels. the noise was greater pointing at the spacer than at the tower.

4. It was not possible to distinguish the relative level of noise from the different phases [23]. That is. TV interference and formation of ozone due to corona will also reduce as electric field strengths are diminished. No noise was detected from the ends of the armor rods. 5. The results are in favor of six-phase transmission line.  245 MHz noise peaked with a directional antenna pointed at the in-span spacers from the bucket located between the tower and the first spacer. sixphase line has lower electromagnetic fields and corona loss. on the basis of electric field. 5. 82 .18 clearly indicates that magnitude of electric field in case of six-phase transmission is relatively smaller in magnitude. Eventually. 5. 5.5 Summary In this chapter electromagnetic field gradients of a transmission line have been discussed. corona loss.Chapter 5 Electromagnetic Field Gradients the conductor clamps of the spacers. corona loss in the transmission line is determined.3 Results Fig. From this it can be concluded that size of insulator required in six phase transmission towers will be less as compared to the three-phase double circuit and size of tower will also be compact as ground clearances and mid span clearances will be reduced. Finally. radio interference.17 and fig. Computer programs are written in MATLAB and are used for plotting the profiles of electric and magnetic fields in both three and six-phase transmission lines.

it must be economically as well as technically beneficial. audio noise. For reduction of corona effect. Later a cost analysis is performed in which a 500kV six-phase line is compared for relative economics with a 500 kV three-phase double circuit design. Studies performed prove that transmission line with six phase system has several advantages as high phase transmission line. television and radio interference and magnetic field giving good impact to the environmental. Six phase transmission line system get enhance the capability delivery as many 73% over with double circuit three-phase system. 83 . has been extensively studied in the last ten years. However. In this chapter. it found affordable to enhance the capability overhead line space on it system advantages. the six phase system is one an alternative to replace double three phase circuit.Chapter 6 System Modifications and Cost Analysis Chapter 6 System Modifications and Cost Analysis High phase order. the modifications required in conversion of a threephase double circuit transmission line to a six-phase lines are discussed and discussing the savings/expenses in terms of cost in all the equipment. A number of papers and reports have presented technical characteristics and benefits to be obtained by the use of more than three phases. Increased power transfer over existing rights of way and reduced electrical environmental impact are two of these benefits. After power transmission been analyzed by using the six phase system. Number phase increase will cause reduction gradient conductor surface. the use of more than three phases for power transmission. Six-phase has already been shown to be an economic uprating tool for double circuit lines. it can be concluded that. By implement small development structure on the system use. for a technology to be applied.

In vector the two sets are 180o out of phase. In practical conversion of three-phase double circuit transmission line to six-phase line requires the installation of new six-phase transformers.Chapter 6 System Modifications and Cost Analysis 6. At high voltage levels usually three-single phase transformers are used to form the three-phase transformer.2 Six Phase Positioning Design of Substation modifications for six phase transmission requires careful attention to detail regarding the phasing arrangement. it will result in vector displacement of 60 degrees between adjacent phases. 6. So in using the existing transformers in forming the six-phase conversion bank there is saving of three single phases (or a three phase) transformers. 6. but when electrically configured into a six phase system. so in six-phase conversion. three more transformers need to be installed. then another three-phase need to be purchased.1. It can either be constructed by using two three-phase transformers or six single phase transformers. [18] However depending upon the life. since it will have greater than normal impact on the physical arrangements. the most suitable way for the production of six-phase is by using three-phase to six-phase conversion transformer. the transformer required must be of higher rating to meet the enhanced power flow. In case a three phase transformer is installed. Further.1 System Modifications In this section major modifications required in the power transmission system in conversion of a three-phase double circuit transmission line to a six-phase transmission line are discussed. the existing transformers can be used in forming a transformer conversion bank.[24] Proper phasing is exercised to ensure that each three phase conductor subset of the six-phase system is connected to the 84 . the transformers of higher rating are always needed even if the method of power transfer capability enhancement is other than six-phase transmission. So.1.1 Six-Phase Conversion Transformers As discussed in chapter 3. one set comprised of phase 1-3-5 and the second comprised of phase 2-4-6. the installation of new three-phase transformers is justifiable. Since the six-phase configuration is mostly achieved through the use of two three-phase transformers using Delta-Wye and Delta-Inverted Wye configurations. As the power transmission capacity is being enhanced. the phasing arrangement of the six phase system (1-2-3-4-5-6) can be visualized as being built with subsets of two three phase systems.

6. So. Seeking the complexity of protection in six-phase transmission system it must be given attention. 2. Provision of phase transposition buses on top of the takeoff structure.3 Six-phase Bays Apart from the need for the positioning structures transformer and switching bays are required for six-phase at high voltages. Phase transposition from the transformers to the first transmission tower of the six phase line could have been achieved in one of two ways: 1.73 pu or 2 pu as discussed in chapter 2. So it requires space and structures for the said purpose at the substation with extension is the ground grid that ultimately appears in the form of increase in cost.1. adequate clearances are maintained during phase transposition of conductors at the secondaries of transformers since the voltage difference between adjacent phases conductors could be 1 pu or 1. foreign scholars have conducted some research on the six-phase transmission system faults. it requires the installation of intelligent and sophisticated protection equipment for current differential line protection and appropriate 85 . These structures are similar to that of the phase positioning structures and also have a similar impact on cost.4 Protection The concept of protection in six-phase is entirely different from that of three-phase transmission system. 6. the number of significant faults in six-phase is 23 whereas in three-phase are only 5. Currently. Reference [26] accurately expressed the symmetrical arrangement electromagnetic coupling sequence and derived the fault current expression based on the analysis of various fault types of six-phase system. Faults in six-phase transmission lines are much more complicated than that of three-phase transmission lines. This was a critical issue for the conductor connections between the transformer take-off structure and first tower of transmission line. Further.Chapter 6 System Modifications and Cost Analysis appropriate transformer terminals at each end of the line. [25] These bays provide housing for the six-phase transformers and circuit breakers respectively. Phase transposition at the transmission tower itself utilizing additional insulator strings and cross over jumpers to achieve the designated vector configuration. In addition.1. and the types of shortcircuit faults are as many as 120 in species that is only 11 in three-phase system.

73% power enhancement is achieved. tower weight is a primary parameter in the economic analysis. That is the power transferring is under the same structures. [28] Transmission towers are designed to carry the load of the conductors hanged with the insulators.1. Three-phase double circuit transmission line to six-phase transmission line reduces the requirements of supporting structures. that is the line to line voltage is reduced to phase to ground voltages. there is no need to reconductoring nor are the excessive insulators required. Also requires specially modified auto reclosing and synchronizing relays. there is no change in the line currents. It is proved in chapter 4. Thus. This is again saving in terms of cost.5 Transmission line Modifications In uprating three-phase double circuit transmission line to six-phase transmission line. the phase to ground voltage increases to line to line voltage. This is a costing factor in six-phase system. that even after converting a threephase double circuit transmission line to six-phase single circuit transmission line. As in three-phase to six phase conversion.1. So.1. and metering. breaker failure protection for each line breaker. 6. Each tower was fully designed and all members properly sized.u. Further. 6. the insulation requirements considerably reduce due to reduction in the system voltage.6 Insulation Requirements We know that in six-phase transmission line. due to 86 . pole disagreement protection.Chapter 6 System Modifications and Cost Analysis transformer protection. there is no need to provide extra insulators on transmission line. Thus the system voltage is again the same as in three-phase double circuit transmission line.7 Tower Structures Transmission towers are priced according to their weight. Calculations done in chapter 2 showed that the maximum potential that exists between any two phases in a six-phase transmission system is not more than 2 p. Research shows that if proper [27] positioning of all the six-phases is done on an existing three-phase double circuit transmission tower. So. If the load is not increased in conversion from three-phase double circuit transmission line to six-phase transmission line. 6. which is the major cost saving in six-phase transmission system. there is no need of re-conductoring. as a result the steel structures required to carry the conductor and insulators reduced. The currents in each phase have the same magnitudes as before in three-phase double circuit transmission line conductors.

6. the cost of ROW varies widely for different locations and areas. the less spacing requirement between the six-phase conductors results in the smaller arms of transmission tower.Chapter 6 System Modifications and Cost Analysis lesser electric field in six-phase power transmission. and are not included in the general case. The ROW requirements of EHV high phase order lines are less than those of three-phase double circuit transmission lines.2 Cost Analysis In this section we introduce a transmission line carrying a specific amount of load.8 Right of Ways The required width of Right of Way is based on electrical system parameters. cost differences for the candidate lines studied are presented only as a single illustration. it is assumed that there is a double circuit 500 kV line between two substations which requires an increase in power flow capability. For this Economic Analysis. The existing line was assumed to be constructed with 795 kcmil ACSR (Drake) conductors. The system was assumed to require uprating to carry an additional 900 MVA. in constructing a new transmission six-phase line in comparison to three-phase double circuit line has a lot of saving in terms of capital required. For the assumed 87 . As discussed in previous chapters that electric and magnetic field gradients of a threephase to six-phase converted transmission line are within the limits governed by the health authorities. it would not be correct to assume that all utilities would use the minimum. 6. making it difficult to assign a meaningful dollar-per-acre ROW cost. the re-conductoring of existing line with a conductor having greater thermal capacity. Further. The existing substation was assumed to be a 500 kV breaker and a half arrangement with 1200 ampere rated equipment. While there is a minimum required width for any transmission line. One option to obtain a rating increase would be to reconductor the line with 795 kcmil ACSR conductor by bundling with the existing conductor. So. the Right of Way span required for six-phase power transmission line is not greater than that of three-phase transmission line. For these reasons.1. reduced electromagnetic field gradients results in compact structures allow a lot of saving in constructing a new six-phase transmission line. and can result in a significant cost advantage [29]. the options considered are the sixphase conversion and other cheapest possible i. So. with combined capability for the two circuits of 1400 MVA. Which is to be uprated to carry some extra load. Also.e.

So it appears to be more feasible for long length transmission lines. 88 .1: Cost for the Equipment to be installed in Six-Phase line Sr. reinforcement of tangent structures. and the six-phase conversion increased the thermal capacity to 2420 MVA. there is a saving in the transmission line equipment. In which three single phase transformers are assumed to form three-phase transformer formerly. It is quite easily observable from the two tables that the terminal equipment in sixphase line is more costly in than a three-phase line. using two three-phase (six single-phase) transformers for phase conversion at each end. Re-conductoring increased the line's thermal capacity to 2800 MVA. the six already used transformers at both ends are used. which may be a consideration for longer lines.Chapter 6 System Modifications and Cost Analysis line and substations. Both options therefore gave similar thermal ratings. Table 6. No. These costs were available in South African Rand and are converted to US dollars. Costs of for different equipment are listed below. Now for the sake of comparison we also take the uprating of an existing three-phase double circuit transmission line to enhance the power transfer capability. So. These costs are obtained from the reference [30]. However. The other option was to convert the line to operate at 500 kV six-phase. this option do require substation modifications. replacement of dead end and angle structures. The six-phase conversion would result in higher surge impedance loading. by reconductoring the line. and new line hardware. 1 2 3 Equipment Line Feeder Bay (4) Transformer Bay (4) Single Phase Transformers (6) (400MVA Each) Cost (Per Unit) $ 382075 $ 280550 $ 541600 Total Cost $ 1528300 $ 1122200 $ 3249600 4 Line ( km) $ 73500/km $ 73500 $ 5900100 + 73500 Total Cost This is a typical up gradation cost of three-phase double circuit transmission line to six-phase transmission line. in this cost analysis. The cost of the equipment to be installed is given in the following table. only six new transformers are installed three at each end.

2: Cost of the equipment for uprating of three-phase double circuit line. This is the minimum length for which the six-phase line is beneficial. for this particular line the six-phase configuration of transmission line capability is enhanced only if the line has a length greater than 9km. No.1: Plot of Total Line Costs for Six-phase and three-phase double circuit lines. So.

protection equipment and lines are discussed.Chapter 6 System Modifications and Cost Analysis 6. At the end a cost comparison of six-phase transmission line made with a three-phase transmission line and it was found that a 500kV transmission line has a benefit is uprating to six-phase line in terms of cost if the line length is more than 6 km.3 Summary In this chapter various system modifications are discussed that are needed in uprating an existing three-phase double circuit transmission line. Saving and costs in substation equipment. 90 .

Moreover.1 Results and Conclusions Following results and conclusions can be made from the calculations. where the complexity in different voltages in six-phase system is discussed in detail. 1. The conclusions are made and limitations of this study are discussed and finally recommendations are made for further study in this field. In this chapter the results of all the analysis performed are summarized and discussed. six-phase transmission line is modeled in MATLAB Simulink and SimPowerSystems. methods have been established for the production of six-phase power and analysis has been performed on the three-phase to six-phase conversion transformers. Where analyses have been performed for the power enhancement capability. In three phase to six-phase conversion. Electric and Magnetic Field Gradients in a transmission line are discussed and analyzed. analyses and simulation performed in this project.Chapter 7 Conclusions and Future Recommendations Chapter 7 Conclusions and Future Recommendations This thesis provides a base for the six-phase transmission system and it explains some basic rules about the six phase power. line to line voltage can be made equal to phase to ground voltage or alternatively phase to ground voltage 91 . checked and verified the voltage and phasor relationships developed earlier. 7. After establishing basics. Later on. A comparison of three-phase double circuit transmission line with six-phase transmission line is done. The voltage drop along the length of a six-phase transmission line is also discussed as a comparison with three-phase double circuit transmission line.

5.Chapter 7 Conclusions and Future Recommendations This voltage level transform can be increased to line to line voltage. between phases separated by one intermediate phase and between opposite phases. between adjacent phases. 3. 8. 4. Out of five common transformer configurations. 7. increased power density. magnetic fields are less than three-phase double circuit transmission line. Diametrical and Double Y configuration phase to neutral voltage is increased to line to line voltage. whereas in ∆-Y & ∆-Inverted Y. depends upon conversion transformers. Magnetic field plots of six-phase line show that under the same loads of as of a three-phase double circuit transmission line. increased utilization of right of way. 6. Electric field plots of six-phase transmission line are also less than those of three-phase double circuit transmission line. But with 73% power enhancement magnetic fields are a bit increased but are far less than the limits set by the Environment and Health Authorities. Double Delta and Y-Y & Y-Inverted Y configuration decrease line to line voltage to make equal to phase to neutral voltage. Four different types of voltages exist in Six-phase system those are phase-to-ground voltage. Six-phase transmission line parameters such as SIL. Voltage Drops across the six-phase transmission line are greater than threephase transmission line and has poor voltage regulation and poor voltage stability with increase in distance and power flow respectively. lower corona and field effects and better lighting performance. Simulation results show that power transfer capability is enhanced in sixphase transmission in comparison to three-phase by 73% with the same line current and same line-to line voltage. 92 . Line Loadibility and stability can be computed by using the same techniques as used for threephase transmission line. that gives a room for the compaction of transmission structures and also provide cost saving for insulators. 2. better stability margins. smaller line structures. Six-phase transmission have several advantages over the three-phase transmission that include higher power transfer capability. This is a drawback of six-phase power transmission line. less insulation requirements.

7. Corona Loss in Six-phase is also less due to low electric field profiles. a three-phase double circuit transmission line can be converted to six-phase line on the existing transmission structures. only modifications required are to be made at terminals. PSSE etc. In future research can be performed on the professional tools that give three dimensional plots of field gradients with more accurate results such as EMF WORKSTATION. 11. Professional power software should be used in future for more accurate results like PSCAD.Chapter 7 Conclusions and Future Recommendations 9. electric and magnetic fields constraints due to health hazards and provides a cost effective solution of upgrading existing transmission lines to six-phase lines. Cost comparison of power capability enhancement of three-phase double circuit transmission line by reconductoring to that converting to six-phase show that six-phase is more economical if line length is more than 9 kilometers. radio interference. 10. Seeking these benefits. For the calculations of magnetic and electric fields. TV interference etc. the simulation of six-phase power transmission line is performed on MATLAB Simulink and SimPowerSystems.2 Project Limitations and Future Recommendations Following are the project limitations and future recommendations for six phase power transmission system: 1. 2. 3. A more detailed 93 . corona loss. So 73% more power can be transferred by the existing transmission lines without any modifications in transmission lines but the modifications are made at sending and receiving end of transmission line in the form of conversion and inversion transformer. All these results have been verified with the help of simulations performed on Simulink® and MATLAB™ programs. So it is concluded that six-phase transmission is a solution to the limitations offered in three-phase power transfer capability enhancement due to unavailability of right of ways. dedicated tools are developed in MATLAB by our own that provide the two dimensional profile of the fields. In this project. The accuracy of MATLAB is limited. For the same load. In this project transformer connections and their primary and secondary voltage levels are analyzed for six-phase conversion banks. are reduced due to which clearances required from the tower or in other sense size of tower is reduced to much extent.

g.Chapter 7 Conclusions and Future Recommendations studied is needed for six-phase transformers and its characteristic under sixphase operation. NTDC should consider six-phase transmission lines for future transmission line construction. 94 . 4. Research should be done at practical level by the Transmission companies by implementing hardware on a long length of transmission line e.
