Abstract

This paper explores various options for increasing power transfer in the electric grid, such as compact transmission lines, high phase order (6 phase) system and use of high temperature low sag (HTLS) conductors. These methods were selected as they could be readily employed without the need for additional right-of-way. Changes in the electric and magnetic field, fault current due to the new methods employed have been calculated and compared with a traditional 3 phase single and double circuit lines. It has been shown that the increase in power transfer ranges from 17-53% when compared with traditional line configurations.
