A line trap, consisting of a main coil in the form of a inductor, a tuning

device and a protective device, is intended for insertion in a high voltage
power transmission line between the point of connection of carrier
frequency signals and adjacent power system elements such as busbar,
transformers etc. The tuning device connected across the mail coil ensures,
with proper adjustment, that the line trap presents relatively high
impedance at one or more carrier frequencies or carrier frequency bands,
whereas the impedance of the line trap at power frequencies is negligible.
A line trap may also be used to limit the loss of carrier-frequency at a
power system tee point.

5.1 Main Coil :

An inductor which carries the power frequency current of the high

voltage transmission line.

5.2 Tuning Device :

The combination of capacitor, inductor and resistors connected across

the main coil. All of these components may not be present at any one
time, depending on the carrier frequency requirements of the line trap.

5.3 Protective Device :

The device connected across the main coil and tuning device which
prevents the line trap from being damaged by transient over voltages
which may occur across it.

The protective device shall be so designed and arranged that neither a

significant alteration in its protective function nor physical damage shall
result either from the temperature rise or magnetic field of the main coil
at continuous rated current, rated short-time current or from emergency
overload current. It shall neither enter into operation as a result of the
power frequency voltage developed across the line trap by rated short-
time current nor shall it remain in operation after a response to a
transient over voltage which is immediately followed by the power
frequency voltage developed across the line trap by rated short-time

GETCO/E/TS-220KV WT 0902/R1, Dt: 10.06.2010

6.1 Ability to withstand rated short-time current:

The line trap so designed shall be capable to withstand the mechanical

forces produce by asymmetrical peak value Ikm of the short-time current
and the heating effect of the rated short-time current IkN.

6.2 Insulation level :

The insulation level for the insulation between the terminals of a line trap
is governed by the rated voltage of the protective device. The insulation of
the mail coil and the tuning device shall be adequately rated for:

a) The voltage developed across the line trap at the rated power frequency
by the rated short-time current. The rated voltage of the protective
device shall be higher than this voltage developed across the line trap.
b) The front of wave impulse spark over voltage or the residual voltage
caused by the nominal discharge current of the protective device, which
ever is higher.

6.3 System voltage insulation:

The system voltage insulation of a line trap is provided by insulator

strings or post insulators. The line trap system voltage insulation shall be
consistent with the other equipment in the associated high voltage
transmission network.

6.4 Tensile strength of suspension system :

The suspension system of a line trap shall be designed for a tensile stress
of at least twice the mass of the line trap in kilograms, multiplied by 9.81
to convert to newtons, plus 5000 N.

7.0 Accessories :

7.1 Bird barriers:

The bird barrier design shall be such that no entrance to the line trap shall
admit a sphere having a diameter of 16mm.

The clamp shall be suitable for t win Moose ACSR conductor. The
clamp, connectors, nuts, bolts and hardware shall be of non-
magnetic material and shall conform to IS: 5561. The clamp shall be
fitted on incoming and outgoing pad of Line Trap with four Nos. of
Nuts & Bolts. The incoming and outgoing conductor shall be on other
side of the clamp fitted with the help of six bolts and nuts
arrangements. The clamps shall be suitable for horizontal and vertical
take off with conductor diameter 28mm to 32mm.

The clamp shall be designed to carry the continuous load of 1250 Amp
at 220KV and shall withstand a dynamic short circuit current of 40KA
for 3 second. The temperature rise shall not exceed 35 C over 50 C
ambient. All the castings shall be free from blowholes, surface blisters,
cracks and cavities. All sharp edges shall be blurred, rounded off and

Clamp and connectors shall be designed so as to avoid corona

formation. The visual corona extinction voltage shall not exceed 156
KV (rms.). All nuts and bolts shall be suitably shrouded. Radio
interference voltage for clamp and connectors shall not exceed 500
microvolt at 156 KV (rms.). No current carrying parts of the Clamps
