This chapter covers the basic components used for modeling a transmission network. The models start with the basic resistance (R), inductance (L), and capacitance (C) derivation, which proceed toward the effect of bundling of conductors. Combining the RLC elements, the short, medium, and long line models were derived, which were later simplified to a two-port network equivalent. In addition, since the long transmission network suffers from inductance and capacitance effects, DC transmission alternatives (high voltage DC, ...
