Overhead Lines

Along streets, alleys, through woods, and in backyards, many of the distribution lines that feed customers are overhead structures. Because over- head lines are exposed to trees and animals, to wind and lightning, and to cars and kites, they are a critical component in the reliability of distribution circuits. This chapter discusses many of the key electrical considerations of overhead lines: conductor characteristics, impedances, ampacity, and other issues.
