Abstract

Conductor spacers rapidly became important pieces of hardware aimed at maintaining the geometry of the bundles to meet the requirements of electrical performance. However, their role soon evolved as a more important component of a complex mechanical system subject to a range of environmental conditions. The response of a conductor bundle to wind excitation ranked highly in the concerns of transmission line engineers. It led to the design of spacer dampers together with the problem of properly distributing them in a given span. Several solutions are now proposed as an adequate spacer system design. Considerable knowledge has been acquired concerning the material requirements and selection criteria, including the use of clamping systems that provide a safe and reliable longterm grip on the conductors, while maintaining the quality of easy installation.
