Application of High-Temperature, Low-Sag (HTLS) Conductors
COURSE OBJECTIVE AND SUMMARY
The range of materials and commercially available high-temperature, low-sag (HTLS) conductors is studied in depth. Installation procedures and problems are discussed and field results examined. Deterioration of HTLS conductors at temperatures above their design limits is explained. The peculiar but important issues involving the use of annealed aluminum wires in combination with steel and carbon fiber composite cores are explored. Limitations of HTLS use in corrosive and extreme ice loading regions are explained.
