1 Introduction

ETHS3S/3002074160/ED2.104.001

In installations with strained flexible conductors the short circuit current carried by the conductors causes development of stress in the conductors due to the electromagnetic force amongst the conductors in par-allel phases. This conductor force is in addition to the static tension on the conductor (measured from sag-tension calculation) and is sustained by the supporting structures. The objective of this calculation is to determine the maximum force generated on the conductor bundle during a short circuit in order to design the switchyard structures to sustain such forces. Further for line-to-line short circuits, conductor swing out typically results in decreasing phase-to-phase clearance between conductors strung in parallel. In this calculation the 'spacer span' on conductor bun-dle is determined to optimize the tensile forces to values that enables maintaining of the minimum air clearances between phases during horizontal span displacements of conductor bundles at L-L short circuit.

ETHS4S/3002074160/ED2.104.001

The basic methodology of this is as explained in IEC-865 (Part 1) : 1993 and further elaborated in the so-lved examples of IEC-865 (Part 2) : 1994. All the terms , factors and some miscellaneous data used in the calculation are as defined in IEC-865 (Part 1) : 1993. As per the values obtained in the calculation, we have plotted curves of Pinch Force ( F pi ), Drop Force ( F f ) and Tensile Force ( Ft) against the spacer span varying from 1.0 m to 10.0 m through every 0.5 m. The curves give the maximum force in the conductor and the 'critical spacer span' at which it occurs. The actual spacer span selected is a span lower than the critical spacer span. Minimum air clearance is determined for the force optimized with the selected spacer span and with the value of static normal tension as the minimum tension under no wind condition (from sag-tension calculation) for line-to-line fault current.

Conclusion

1. For design of support structure the maximum value of short circuit force to be considered is to be decided from Attachment 3. This includes the tensile forces owing to dead load of conductor and wind load on conductor, and has been expressed on 'per phase' basis. This force shall be applied to two Phases of the girder supporting them whereas the third phase shall have normal static tension from sagtension calculation. This is as per note no. 2 under clause no. 2.4.2 of IEC-865 (Part 1). 2. As per IEC-61936 (Part-1, Clause 5.4.3), the minimum air clearance between phase conductors at maximum swing out position due to short circuit shall be at least 50 % of the mandatory phase-to-phase clearance. 400 kV outdoor switchyard with rated Lightning Impulse Withstand voltage of 1425 kV, the mandatory phase-to-phase clearance is 4 m. Thus the minimum air clearance shall be greater than 2 m.
