What is Drake conductor?

Applications. Used as bare overhead transmission cable and as primary and secondary distribution cable. ACSR offers optimal strength for line design. Variable steel core stranding enables desired strength to be achieved without sacrificing ampacity.

What does ACSR stand for?

Aluminium conductor steel-reinforced cable
Aluminium conductor steel-reinforced cable (ACSR) is a type of high-capacity, high-strength stranded conductor typically used in overhead power lines.

### What is conductor ampacity?

Wire ampacity is the maximum electrical current (Amperes or “Amps”) that safely exist in a given size of conductor. Wires are made of 2 basic components: a copper conductor and the wire insulation that surrounds it. The temperature of the conductor will rise as the current level increases.

What is ACSR stands for ACSR?

These cables are formally known as All Aluminium Conductor (AAC), All Aluminium Alloy Conductor (AAAC) and Aluminium Conductor Steel Reinforced (ACSR).

How is conductor weight calculated?

Weight = Span “A” + Span “B” x W x 1.5 2 W = kg per m (lbs. per ft.) of conductor.

## How do you determine the number of strands in a ACSR conductor?

Representation of ACSR Conductor:

1. A standard conductor is represented as A/S/D for ACSR conductor.
2. Where,
3. A is the number of aluminum strands.
4. S is the number of steel strands.
5. D is the diameter of each strand.
