  • Dead-End Substation Steel Structures
    Where the line ends or angles off and are usually made with heavier construction due to having to carry the transmission line conductors at full tension or at slack span....

  • Two most common dead-end structures in a substation are A-Frames and H-Frames.

    A-Frame
    •Arranged to handle higher tensions but has larger foot print
    •Always have at least four legs and one conductor beam
    •Facilitate long line spans or high loading requirements
    •Maximized when conductors come straight in with minimal line angle
    •Higher moment loads at the base are transformed into tension/compression loads, resulting in smaller foundations

    H-Frame
    •Arranged to handle mid-range to slack span tension with a smaller footprint
    •Always have at least two legs and one conductor beam
    •Generally high moment loads at the base resulting in larger foundations
    •Spacing between legs is determined by the electrical requirements
    •Effective to use in smaller or compact substations when smaller footprint is needed

  • Transmission Steel Structures
    Transmission structures are the electrical interstate system. They can travel long distances...

  • The majority of transmission structures are mono poles/single standing poles. The three phases and static wire are stacked vertically on the poles. The static wire is located at the top to protect the lines from lightning.

    Common transmission structure types:

    Dead-End Pole

    •Wires come in at an angle
    •Typically the mid-size poles of the t-line
    •Supports line as it travels through the right-of-way to remain within boundaries
    •Supports conductors above ground

    Tangent Pole

    •There is little to no line angle
    •Equal and opposite loads
    •Typically the smaller poles of the t-line
    •Typically the higher quantity of the t-line
     
    Angle Pole
     
    •Wires come in at an angle
    •Typically the mid-size poles of the t-line
    •Supports line as it travels through the right-of-way to remain within boundaries
    •Supports conductors above ground
