Calculate the per-phase inductive reactance per mile (1600 m) for a three-phase line at 377 rad/s. The conductors are aluminum conductors, steel-reinforced (ACSR) Redwing (Table 9.2) arranged in a plane as shown in Fig. 9.4.

Calculation Procedure

1. Calculate

From Table 9.2, GMR=0.0373 ft (0.01 m). Substituting in the equation for per-phase inductance, we find =(2 10 7)ln(3.6 7.2 3.6) 1/3/0.01=12.2 10 7 H/m.

2. Calculate Inductive Reactance, X L

X L=377 12.2 10 ?7 H/m 1600 m=0.74 ?/mi.

Products & Services
Constant Voltage Transformers (CVTs)
Constant voltage transformers (CVTs) or ferroresonant transformers produce a constant secondary (output) voltage for varying primary (input) voltages within a certain range.
Inductive Linear Position Sensors and Switches
Inductive linear position sensors and switches are noncontact devices that determine an object's coordinates (linear or angular) with respect to a reference.
Power Plugs
Power plugs are male connectors used to distribute power to electrical devices.
Cable Bus Systems
Cable bus systems are used to transfer large amounts of power (very high current and voltage) between a power source and a load center. They are engineered systems that include cable trays, wireways, and conductors for connecting a power source to a machine. Unlike trays and wireways, cable bus systems are complete packages that include wiring or cabling.
Resistors and Potentiometers
Resistors and potentiometers are passive electronic components that oppose the flow of either alternating current (AC) or direct current (DC).
