Calculation of the Thermal Regime of Gas-Insulated Electrical Transmission Lines

  • A. P. VikharevEmail author

Gas-insulated transmission lines (GIL) are used for high-power extraction from electric power plants and high power delivery to large cities and industrial centers. A large part of a GIL lies above the earth’s surface. In an overhead configuration GIL are subject to climatic factors that affect their transmission, which is determined by the thermal regime. A method for calculating the thermal regime of overhead GIL is developed which takes the influence of climatic factors into account. Calculations for a specific GIL design are presented and analyzed.
