ACCC Lapwing Conductor Increases Capacity
 of Double Circuit 230 kV Transmission Line in Louisiana


Entergy Completes 5th ACCC Installation 


With the support of a local contractor, T&D Solutions, Entergy completed its 5th ACCC conductor installation in Gonzales, Louisiana.  A single 1949 kcmil (987.5 mm^2) 1.5 inch (38.2mm) diameter (four layer) ACCC conductor was selected to increase the capacity and improve clearances of a double-bundle double-circuit 230 kV line adjacent to a substation.


Prior to the project's start, CTC Global's Field Supervisor, Bill Percy, reviewed installation procedures with several T&D Solutions personnel.  Once the outage was scheduled, Bill returned to the project site to assist. After a short weather break, CTC Global's Ismael "I-Man" Dones took over for Bill and assisted the crew in pulling the conductor over a long-span highway and railroad crossing. Due to the size of the conductor a 72 inch (183 cm) bull-wheel tensioner was used. Though heavy rains, sleet, snow and high winds caused minor delays, the project went smoothly.

CTC Global created CCP to help system planners and engineers compare the ampacity, line losses, thermal and ice load sag, and economic aspects of nearly any conductor type and size, so the numerous advantages of the ACCC� conductor can be fully realized. The user simply selects the conductor types and sizes from drop down menus and enters the appropriate values & assumptions highlighted in the yellow boxes. The program is fully functional and uses standard industry formulas (such as IEEE 738-2006). Outputs are readily comparable to Sag10�, PLS CADD™ and other similar programs.
