The research line "New Concepts of Transmission Lines" aims to provide Eletrobras companies with technical knowledge, analysis methodologies, laboratory test results and other technical subsidies for the design, calculation and optimization of AC transmission lines (AC ) and direct current (DC), at voltage levels up to 1000 kV in AC and up to ± 800 kV in DC.
Research integrates current calculation methodologies and laboratory test procedures developed for conventional and unconventional transmission lines in AC and DC.
Cepel, together with Furnas, Chesf, Eletronorte and Eletrosul, and the Energy Research Company (EPE), have participated in the development of configurations of high performance transmission lines, in order to overcome the challenges of transmitting large blocks of energy to large distances.
Among the products developed under this line of research are software for optimization of transmission line configurations, and procedures for testing and results of laboratory tests in UAT.
For experimental research activities, complementary resources are used in the High Voltage Laboratory, located in Adrianópolis Unit, and the Mechanical Properties Laboratory (MA4), installed in Fundão Unit.
