Overhead transmission of electric power has been along the years and will still continue one of the most important elements of today’s electric power systems. Power transmission from generating stations to industrial sites and to substations is the fundamental object of the transmission systems. This function is accomplished by overhead transmission lines that connect the power plants into the transmission network, interconnect various areas of transmission networks, interconnect one electric utility with another, or deliver the electric power from various areas within the transmission network to the distribution substations, from which the distribution systems supply residential and commercial consumers.
