Net energy analysis of electrical transmission lines


This paper presents an analysis of the energy costs inherent in the construction and operation of a 1000-mile length of 765 KV AC, ± 400 KV DC and ± 600 KV DC transmission lines. Calculations were made for the indirect energy costs associated with materials and construction as well as line losses during operation. Environmental losses were evaluated as… (More)
