Overhead Line Mechanics Taking the Influence of Wind into Account

Miroslav Müller


This paper deals with problems of overhead line motion. The line model is based on a dynamic description of a catenary curve. The benefits of dynamic modeling in this field are decrypted, and there is an explanation of one of the models that is used. The dynamic model is derived from a string equation. The main contribution of the model is in 3D simulation of complex mechanics. The model of an overhead line shaking is generally based on the superposition of harmonic components, in particular the spatial coordinates. Each individual harmonic component is solved separately in one step of calculation, and is then combined with the other solutions. The result is a continuous description of the position of the wire along its length in both the space domain and the time domain. The model thus allows calculationsof uneven effects of forces along the length of an overhead line. The accuracy of the calculation is determined by the number of harmonics and other parameters that are calculated (e.g. step size, simulation time) The model is actually a combination of discrete and continuous calculations. Each model function block is described in the form of an equation. In the case study, ACSR 350/59 wire is analyzed. In this part of our work, an auxiliary model of wind influence was integrated into the global model.
