Applications

Southwire’s ACSS/TW is designed for overhead distribution and transmission lines. It is designed to operate continuously at elevated temperatures up to 250°C without loss of strength; it sags less under emergency electrical loadings than ACSR/TW; excellent self-damping properties; and its final sags are not affected by long-term creep of aluminum. Southwire’s ACSS/TW is available in equal area and equal diameter design. The equal area design allows equal ampacity in a smaller diameter conductor when compared with a standard ACSS conductor. The equal diameter design allows more ampacity in an equal diameter conductor when compared with a standard ACSS conductor. ACSS/TW also provides many design opportunities for new line construction: i.e., reduced tower cost, decreased sag, increased self-damping properties, increased operating temperature, and improved corrosion resistance.
