Abstract

"In the last few years the transmission voltages have increased tremendously. Along with the voltage increase came increased load carrying ability for the circuits. The first few links of a new 330 KV transmission system are now under construction in this country. Sweden is already operating a 380 KV line. It is expected to carry a load as high as 850,000 KW on a single circuit.

Interconnection between systems in adjoining areas is a practice to get further operating benefits. The benefits are - reduction of necessary reserve capacity, increased load diversity, and decreasing losses.

Both of these developments bring benefits, but they also bring problems; the major ones being those of circuit interruption. With higher voltages and larger capacities behind a system these problems become difficult. There has been much recent literature on different phases of the interruption problem but none combining all of these phases in a single discussion"--Introduction, page 1.
