- Increasing line capacity
Replacing existing ACSR conductors by AAAC UHC can increase the capacity by up to 35%.
- Reduction of line losses and CO2 emission
More conductive aluminium reduces line losses by up to 9% compared to conventional AAAC conductors of the same size and weight.
- Less power generation and reduced CO2 emission
Lower line losses means less power generation and less CO2 emissions to serve the same load.
- Easy replacement
Any AAAC conductor can be replaced by an AAAC UHC conductor just by replacing the conductor itself. They use the same type of line hardware and can be installed in exactly the same way.
- Reduced Total Cost of Ownership
AAAC UHC conductors allow transmission and distribution system owners to reduce the total cost of ownership of the network.
This conductor is a good solution to replace most conventional ACSR conductors, particularly those with steel sections below 15%. Due to higher strength, higher conductivity and lower weight for comparable diameter, initial sag can be reduced, taking full advantage of increased capacity and conductivity.
AAAC UHC can be designed using a mix of round and shaped wires resulting in truly superior conductors, unique on today’s market.
