Greg Woulf

I wonder what other technology is available. I know there are the super conductors, but they have some problems as well.

It seems an elegant solution to some problems with the infrastructure.

I'd rather see buried wires wherever possible, but I'm not sure I understand a thing about infrastructure style wiring.

Alex Brown

You can't bury high voltage cables easily since there will be a very high capacitance to ground which will impede the flow of current over the wire.

Nick

Plus, buried cable is susceptible to flooding, and is very expensive to lay. I've read stories about utilities that hate it, and believe that it is no more reliable than aboveground cable.

amazingdrx

Above ground cable is increasingly unreliable with more severe storm events like flooding, snowstorms, drought related fires, hurricanes, and tornadoes. All climate change related problems due to ever increasingly wide swings of weather conditions.

Distributed generation and storage cures that problem making each individual home. locality, and region capable of powering itself for a time, disconnected from the grid.

That saving in longer repair timeouts possible and a deferred grid update to underground lines less suseptible to storms would actually pay in savings to local utility companies, most of the cost of the distributed generation and storage.

Grid upgrades are a huge expense. The upgrades needed to integrate large scale wind and wave power systems would be offset by much lower rates for the electricity and zero pollution and no fuel costs.

G Eddy

Have i missed something, or have we NOT been told what the conducting core is actually made of? What is its composition?

I'm mystified.

pbean

The core is a non-conducting tube of phenolic resin. It replaces the steel core in a conventional conductor, allowing them to use more (and higher-purity) aluminum while maintaining the high-temperature strength of the cable. Check out their website. This may not be revolutionary but it's a superb example of evolutionary progress: many small changes add up to significant improvement.

Roy

Nick is right. Buried cable is about 4 times as expensive as arieal cable. And its the distribution cables that are occasionally knocked out by storms. Most transmission lines can easily withstand severe weather.

Donald Kelley

Composite Technology also owns EU Energy that produces Dewind turbines for wind farms. Dewind is the best turbine in the industry and EU Energy has 2.9 Billion dollars in booked sales for these turbines with no end in sight. This company will be a 10 bagger in the very near future.

Dear Sir

supply of 1400 MT all aluminium conductors


We are one of the leading companies in Sri Lanka supplying to the government and other organizations.

Dowell international (Pvt) Ltd is main supplier for the Sri Lanka defense and also Sri Lanka electricity board. The GOSL to develop electricity network in Sri Lanka, the president Mahinda Rajapaksa has allocated with the 20 billion USD to expand the electricity network in Sri Lanka.

So we got the tender to supply of 1400 MT all aluminium conductors to the CEB. So I hope we can lend a hand with you’re good company to supply this. We are waiting for soon rejoin

Best regards,

Now I need the catalouges of conductor ACCC. Please send the catalouge to my email. thank you.

Bob Wallace

Achmad - I doubt you'll get a response from the company by posting here. It's unlikely that anyone from ACCC reads this blog.

The link in the blog text seems to be broken. You might try searching the web for their site.

Hope this helps....

Now I need the catalouges of conductor ACCC. Please send the catalouge to my email. thank you.

egi

Dear Readers,

I'm totally agree if ACCC used in transmission line we will get some advantage. But it's quiet different if it's used at substation. Because we need to bending ACCC for dropper.

Could you please give some ideas for above case?

SUNIL J. SHAH

Gentlemen,

ACCC CONDUCTOR

We have seen your website and are attracted by your new technology in manufacturing ACCC CONDUCTOR which has various advantages over that of conventional ACSR.

However, we would like to know the distinct advantages of ACCC over that of All Aluminium Alloy Conductors (AAAC) ASTM B 339 and ACAR (Aluminium Conductors Alloy Reinforced).

We make ACSR in bulk for supply to Public Utilities . We also have a Properzi Plant for manufacture of Aluminium Wire Rods from Aluminium Ingots.

Our Factories are based in Western India.

On receipt of your reply, we shall revert to you further in the matter.

Thanking you,

you guys might try CTCs website

ACCR-Pro

I would do a bit more homework on the ACCC conductor if I was you. You will find they have had several failures and they have had to de-rate their conductor substantially. The 3M ACCR conductor has a flawless track record. The other advantage is that 3M is a very large, professional company that is a leader in innovation. Goto their website: www.3m.com/accr

How do you splice it together

Esso

Can you kindly send me the price per meter of ACCC Oriole AND ACCC Stockholm. Thank you

Natalia Novikova

Dear bloggers, may be any one knows, how much is the length of high voltage transmission lines in USA?
Thanks in advance!
Natalia

REZA

Dear sir,
Thank you very much we are going to reconductor a high voltage over head transmission line . We have a question about the fittings , would you please tell us how we can prepare those fittings ? Actually the conductor is : ACCC-CASABLANCA .
Second if it needs special tools and equipments for stringing and installation ?
i am looking forward to hear from you . your soon reply would be highly appriciated .
Best Regards

Dear Bloggers,
We have read the many advantages of the ACCC conductors but have also been warned of many failures of the ACCC conductor leading to conductor de-rating. can anyone help provide a technical comparison between the ACCC and the ACCR? Please help!
