GL Aluminum conductor Composite Core (ACCC) conductor consists of a hybrid carbon and glass fiber core which is wrapped with trapezoidal shaped aluminum strands. The high strength structural core carries most of the conductor's mechanical load, while the fully annealed aluminum strands carry all of the conductor's electrical current. ACCC conductor's composite core is much lighter and stronger than conventional or high-strength steel core.
Usually used in the overhead power transmission lines，it has a double capacity of ACSR at the same conditions.
Reduced Line Losses in New Lines:
Under equal load conditions reduces line losses by 30 to 40 % compared to conductors of the same diameter and weight.
100% capacity build towards future demand.
Ideal for Reconductoring
Increase capacity while improving line clearance and losses.
Reduce strain on structures increasing life.
ACCC is a concentrically stranded conductor composed of one or more layers of hard-drawn 1350H19 aluminum wire stranded with a high-strength carbon and glass fiber core. The core may be single wire or stranded depending on the size.
Ease of Installation:
ACCC conductor installations use conventional installation methods, tools, and most conventional hardware; no expensive special tools are required and limited additional training is needed.
Reduce line losses and greenhouse gas emissions :
1.The conductor is less than 2% of the operating cost of a line over 40 years, Your greatest single cost is the fuel you waste in line losses.
2.By using ACCC conductor, you can reduce CO2 emissions by thousands of tons over the 40-year life of a line and reduce your tower height and cost at the same ti.
With 28% more annealed aluminum in a trapezoidal configuration the ACCC conductor of the same diameter as ACSR can double the current (ampacity) rating; Higher operating efficiency reduces line losses and associated emissions by more the 35%, resulting in more power delivered and lower power generation costs.
ACCC conductors use a patented carbon/glass/thermoset resin core that provides high strength and reduces high-temperature sag. Can re-conductor existing pathways without structural modification and reduce capital expenses on new lines.
Uses conventional installation methods, tools, and most conventional hardware- no special tools and limited special training.
Resists environmental degradation - will not rust, corrode, or cause electrolysis with aluminum conductors and components.
