Project @ a Glance

Contents on the CD Rom

  • Aluminum a silvery white and ductile member of the poor metal group of chemical elements. It has the symbol Al; its atomic number is 13. It is not soluble in water under normal circumstances.
  • Aluminium is the most abundant metal in the Earth's crust, and the third most abundant element overall, after oxygen and silicon. It makes up about 8% by weight of the Earth’s solid surface.
  • Aluminium alloy conductor is revolutionary break through in conductor technology. Users all over the world are switching over to AAAC due to its technical superiority.
  • Aluminum conductors used today in building wire and service cables are more than likely manufactured from an aluminum alloy known as an ACM alloy. ACM stands for Aluminum Conductor Material.
  • The first technology being tested at Powerline Conductor Accelerated Testing (PCAT) is an aluminum conductor composite-reinforced (ACCR) cable, which is an advanced conductor developed by 3M Corporation.
  • Implosive sleeve technology offers a number of advantages over conventional hydraulic methods of joining conductors. Connection quality is better, the splice is easier to install, overall cost is reduced and project completion time is shortened.
  • 6101 aluminum alloy trapezoidal wire in T81 temper is used for overhead self-damping conductors. This type of conductor has high
    wind-induced motion resistance, which protects the conductor from damaging strains caused by high frequency (5-50 Hz) vertical motion
    produced at relatively low wind speeds.
  • Aluminum conductor weighs half as much as equivalent copper conductor. The lighter weight is attractive for small transformers, coils, motors, and portable equipment, especially in aerospace applications where reduced component weight allows a highly important increase in payload.
  • Power transmission cables using a new composite conductor are expected to greatly increase the capacity and efficiency of the U.S. electricity grid. ORNL is working with 3M, the developer of the aluminum-conductor composite-reinforced (ACCR) wires, to analyze the performance of the new conductor.
  • ACCR operates at temperatures up to 210°C (410°F) with no degradation of its properties, while ACSR can operate only at 100°C (212°F) or below. The higher operating temperature allows ACCR to transmit two to three times more power than ACSR.
  • The aluminum serves as the electrical conductor, while the steel provides mechanical support. This hybrid design results in an excellent weight-to conductivity ratio, but it also yields a heavier product, which requires stronger and more costly support structures and limits conductivity.
  • The composite-reinforced aluminum conductor is ideally suited to the transmission and distribution markets for several reasons. Because existing towers and poles could be used without modification, and no additional right-of-way land would be needed, line-permitting time and
    cost would be greatly reduced.
  • The tremendous advantages of the new conductor are brought about due to new innovations in the materials used. Compared to steel, the new composite core is lighter weight, equivalent strength, lower thermal expansion, higher elastic modulus, and higher electrical conductivity. This permits the use of higher operating temperatures, which in turn leads to higher ampacities.
  • The 3M Composite Conductor can be installed quickly using conventional equipment and without heavy construction equipment. This simple solution also reduces service interruption.
  • The development of the high-volume ACSR product was a critical technical milestone. Because of competition in this market, the aluminum product was subject to continuous improvement in its conductivity and consistency.
  • Experts went on to develop processes to refine aluminum to 99.99% purity. Testing methods and quality-assurance procedures were put into place to guarantee that the product would provide consistent electrical and structural performance. Later refinements to electrical conductor alloys have resulted in higher strength levels without significant losses in conductivity.
