INDUCTANCE OF THREE PHASE
DOUBLE CIRCUIT LINES
Example 3.2

One circuit of a single-phase transmission line is composed of


three solid 0.5 cm radius wires. The return circuit is composed of
two solid 2.5 cm radius wires. The arrangement of conductors is
as shown in Figure below. Applying the concept of the GMD and
GMR, determine the inductance of the complete line in mH/km.

MEDIUM TRANSMISSION LINE
Example 3.5

A 200 km long 3-phase overhead line has a resistance


of 48.7 Ω per phase, inductive reactance of 80.20 Ω per
phase and capacitance 8.42 nF per phase/km. It
supplies a load of 13.5 MW at a voltage of 88 kV and
power factor 0.9 lagging. Use nominal pi circuit,
calculate the sending end voltage, current, voltage
regulation and power angle.
