Simulating Electric Power Transmission Tower & Lines with ElecNet

To completely understand the complexities of the electric field produced by and surrounding a power transmission line, the insulator and tower requires accurate simulation software.

In this webinar, we will tackle this problem with ElecNet 2D/3D which uses the finite element method to solve for the electric field strength, forces, capacitances and other quantities.

Three examples will be covered during this webinar:

  • Insulating structure for a transmission line
  • Insulating structure installed on a transmission line with 3 phases
  • Lightning striking a surge arrester

The evaluation of the electric field stress will be evaluated in various areas in order to modify the design, if necessary, to reduce corona discharge.
