Transmission towers constitute about 28 to 42 percent of the cost of the transmission line. The increasing demand for electrical energy can be met more economically by improving the design and configuration of the transmission line towers.
Foundation of any structure plays an important role in safety and satisfactory performance of the structure as it transmits mechanical loads of the electrical transmission system to earth. A transmission structure without having a sound and safe foundation cannot perform the function for which it has been designed. Knowing and applying the best design based on the location’s environment is the key in improving line performance and safety.
Overhead transmission is a complicated engineering and design challenge. Salvo Global’s 3-day course on Overhead Line Design will provide an in-depth overview of transmission line and transmission line design, which will examine the behavior of wires, the design and analysis considerations, and the types of loads on wires and structures. This course will also provide attendees with the knowledge of the governing codes. This is the ideal course for engineers new to overhead transmission projects, regulatory staff that needs an overview to evaluate project options and vendors and contractors that support utilities as they build new transmission.
