On-Demand: Session 3: Using A High Capacity Conductor in Transmission Projects Webinar

Thursday, May 30, 2013

Past Event:

Time: 2:00pm ET/ 11:00am PT

Abstract: The electric power industry recognizes that high capacity conductors can offer substantial performance advantages over standard steel and aluminum conductors, most notably for increasing ampacity of existing transmission lines.  But how do you know when these advantages provide real value in your project or which conductor is best for your application?  The objective of this webinar is to answer these questions and provide the information needed to be confident when selecting a high capacity conductor.  3M experts will discuss one such conductor, 3M Aluminum Conductor Composite Reinforced (3M ACCR).  The presenters will outline how ACCR works, when to use it to help resolve your project’s challenges, how to design with ACCR and choose the best option, and what to know about the reliable performance and durability of the conductor as demonstrated in laboratory and field testing and case studies.  

About the Series:
