Calculation of the Two High Voltage Transmission Line Conductors’ Minimum Distance

In the design of high voltage transmission lines inevitably needed to change the arrangement of wires, and the distance between the wires directly affected by changing the arrangement of the wires. The distance between the wires is difficult to judge by experiences. Therefore, it is urgently to develop a way to accurately calculating the minimum distance between the wires when changing the arrangement between the two wires, and determine the minimum distance can meet the requirements of standards and regulations or not. Through the thinking, based on the balance equation and the space curve wire calculus method, a more accurate method of calculating the two wires in a variety of conditions the minimum spacing was derivated, and the sensitivity of the minimum distance was analysized based on the method.
