14.1 Transmission Line Parameters

The power transmission line is one of the main components of an electric power system. Its major function is to transport electric energy, with minimal losses, from the power sources to the load centers, usually separated by long distances. The design of a transmission line depends on four electrical parameters:

  1. Series resistance
  2. Series inductance
  3. Shunt ...
