This conductor force is in addition to the static tension on the conductor (measured from sag-tension calculation) and is sustained by the supporting structures.001 In installations with strained flexible conductors the short circuit current carried by the conductors causes development of stress in the conductors due to the electromagnetic force amongst the conductors in par-allel phases.s 1 Introduction ETHS3S/3002074160/ED2.104. The objective of this calculation is to determine the maximum force generated on the conductor bundle during a short circuit in order to design the switchyard structures to sustain such forces.73E+10 1. Further for line-to-line short circuits. conductor swing out typically results in decreasing phase-to-phase clearance between conductors strung in parallel.843 m m 400 kV Switchyard at O P Jindal Super Thermal Power Plant Page 3 of 11 .45 mm mm 2 kg/m N / m2 kg m 4 Installation Data 1 2 Phase-to-Phase Spacing Length of Insulator String . In this calculation the 'spacer span' on conductor bun-dle is determined to optimize the tensile forces to values that enables maintaining of the minimum air clearances between phases during horizontal span displacements of conductor bundles at L-L short circuit.94 0.77 597 2.TWIN ACSR MOOSE 7 3.

the minimum air clearance between phase conductors at maximum swing out position due to short circuit shall be at least 50 % of the mandatory phase-to-phase clearance. 2.Calculation of Effects.104. The curves give the maximum force in the conductor and the 'critical spacer span' at which it occurs. . 400 kV outdoor switchyard with rated Lightning Impulse Withstand voltage of 1425 kV.
