Traditionally, medium voltage distribution networks employ bare aluminum overhead conductors for power transmission. The uninsulated bare conductors are vulnerable to line trip-outs and ground faults due to brief electric crosses or contacts with tree branches and oversized vehicles. The use of covered conductors allows for more compact assemblies and lower masts and poles, and helps to minimise the environmental impact of transporting electricity by reducing the visual intrusion of wires, poles and transmission towers.
SAARC Energy Centre (SEC) is organizing a webinar on “Use of Covered Conductors in Medium Voltage Power Transmission” on 18 October 2021. The objective of the webinar will be to share information on the application of the covered conductor system in the distribution network. The motive shall be to enable the distribution utility network planning engineers working in the SAARC region to make an informed decision on the choice of medium voltage distribution covered-conductors best suited to their specific planning constraints.
Participation in the webinar is free and open to everyone. All interested can attend this webinar by registering at the link below:
