Corona Effect In Transmission Line

Corona Effect


Electric power transmission for all intents and purposes manages the mass exchange of electrical vitality, from creating stations arranged numerous kilometers from the fundamental utilization focuses or the urban communities. Thus, the long-separate transmission links are of the most extreme need for effective power exchange, which in-obviously results in colossal misfortunes over the framework. Limiting those has been a noteworthy test for control architects generally and to do that one ought to have an unmistakable comprehension of the sort and nature of misfortunes. 

Corona Effect


High voltage control transmission, a substantial power conveyed through the conductor. At the point when the power is exchanged through the conductor, the voltage awe between the conductor and air will make a capacitance for the line. The marvels of violet gleam, murmuring clamor, and production of the ozone gas contained in the overhead transmission lines are typically favored as the corona effect in the transmission line. The effect of corona gives awful effects to the transmission line framework. Here we are additionally intending to talk about a few elements which influence corona misfortunes in transmission lines and how to limit the corona effect in the transmission line

At the point when the voltage which applies for is getting surpass the basic disturbing voltage esteem, the conductor will get encompassed by a violet shine with murmuring commotion is known as corona effect in the transmission line.

Why Corona formations are not good for Transmission Lines


Corona arrangement in high voltage electrical cables is viewed as a disservice and by applying exceptional outlines the effect endeavors to get decrease for the greatest level. Following are a portion of the main burdens which happen because of the corona arrangements of electrical cables. 

Development of the corona effect in the transmission line is likewise made a vitality misfortune so some piece of profitable vitality gets diminished because of this marvels. 

This effect likewise leads to consumption on the conductor of electrical cables and the conduit gets debilitated because of this. 

At the point when there are correspondence tower or any correspondence media this likewise interference with the correspondence channels as well.

Disadvantages of corona effect


Corona Effect

  1. Development of corona drives vitality misfortune in the transmission line 
  2. Because of the misfortunes, this diminishes the transmission efficiency of the framework 
  3. Create an Ozone that is unsafe for the external environment 
  4. Because of the misfortunes which happen because of the transmission line, the voltage drop can occur and this likewise can prompt low voltage control.

Minimize the corona effect

Because of specifying hindrances, the transmission tower and electrical cable frameworks are intended to diminish the effect. So following plan steps are made into motion while the development and configuration phase of transmission lines. 

1. The width of the Conductor Increase

to decrease the corona effect in transmission line misfortunes the breadth of the conductor increments. since the expansion of conductor distance across happens genuine cost, the width is getting increment by the empty conductors. 

2. The Voltage of The Lines are additionally Increased

To diminish the effect the voltage levels are can increment. Yet, the expansion of the voltage can just perform up to a certain constraint. 

3. Increment the dispersing between the conductors

The dividing between the conductors is expanded to decrease the effect of the corona. in any case, similar to the expanding of the voltage levels space can likewise increment up to a certain impediment. Since then when the separating of conductor expands the voltage drop between them likewise increment.

Limitations of Terzaghi Theory

Limitations of Terzaghi Theory The value of the coefficient of consolidation has been assumed to be constant.  The distance d of the drainage path cannot be measured accurately in the field. The thickness of the deposit is generally variable, and an average value has to be estimated.  There is sometimes difficulty 1n locating the drainage face, sometimes thin previous seams that can act as good drainage face are missed in the boring operations. The equation is based on the assumption that the consolidation is one-dimensional. In the field, the consolidation is generally 3-dimensional. The lateral drainage may have a significant effect on the time rate of consolidation. The initial consolidation and secondary consolidation have been neglected. Sometimes these form an important part of the total consolidation. In actual practice, the pressure distribution may be far from linear or uniform. Read More Muller-Breslau principle

Price Guard Wire Method

Price Guard Wire Method Some form of  Price Guard Wire Method  is generally used to eliminate the errors caused by leakage currents over insulation. Fig. 3.14 illustrates the operation of This Method. In fig 3.14(a), a high resistance mounted on a piece of insulating material is measured by the ammeter voltmeter method. The micro-ammeter measures the sum of the current through the resistor (IR) and the current through the leakage path around the resistor. The measured value of resistance computed from the readings indicated on the voltmeter and the microammeter, will not be a true value but will be in error.   Figure 3.14 Application of  guard  circuit for measurement of high resistance In fig, 3.14 (b), the  guard  terminal has been added to the resistance terminal block. The  guard  terminal surrounds the resistance terminal entirely and is connected to the battery side of the micro-ammeter. The leakage current IL now

Negative Booster

Negative booster A negative booster is employed to conform to the regulation that the potential difference between any two points of the rail return shall not exceed 7 V. Two boosters, positive and negative, are used which are mechanically coupled together and driven by a DC motor. The positive booster is connected to the trolley wire (near the generating station) and the negative booster (separately excited) is connected to the track rail.  The 'positive booster' adds voltage to the line while the 'negative booster lowers the potential of the point it is connected to. As we go along the trolley wire away from the generating station/sub-station, the potential drop increases, and the voltage of the trolley wire falls. Since the current returns via the track rail points away from the generating station acquire high potentials. This potential is brought down by the negative boost provided by the negative booster. When the load is sufficiently far aw
