Location: In the bothy, 7 chains down the line from Dodman's Lane level crossing, in the nation formerly known as Great Britain - possibly to become "South Scotland" or "Non-Caledonia" from September 2016. Kettle's on.
The recent explosion of personal telephony across the globe seems to have gone hand-in-hand with a profound reluctance to actually use the damn things for the purpose for which they have been designed.
PWSlack is right. Selecting a conductors for H.V and L.V systems will need a consultants support for the start till knowledge and experince is gained. There are alot of factors to consider when selecting areal condcutors for a distribution system. This all starts from the project investigating, scoping, and the design phase. Some of these factors include;
1. the line span
2. mechanical loading from wind speed, still air, sun, rain, ice, tension from suspension and pin insulators, pole top construction type
4. voltage and current to be transported
5. conductor expansion rate
6. line support structure, pole top construction type, and protection.
7. line route and geography
The first thing the consultant may ask for is your design requirements. Based on that, the conductors may be determined. Read on the Design and Construction of Distribution Systems from the net, there's alot of free books in PDF format you can download on the topic.
