The use of carbon composite technology in overhead conductor is nothing new. Over the past 15 years, 65,000+ kilometers of the the ACCC carbon fiber composite core conductor has been installed and used to successfully increase the capacity, efficiency, and reliability of transmission networks around the globe. Substantial value has been proven, as in many other industries, of utilizing the exceptional specific strength of carbon composites over steel. Such success has recently led to new designs for carbon composite conductor core technologies. Helically wound carbon composite strands with what appears to be a thermoplastic coating is the latest design being promoted, but how do the two compare?
