AULDP Webinar Series
OHD Electric and Communication Line
Conductors and Cables

November 15, 2018       8:00 A.M. PDT      9:00 A.M. MDT      10:00 A.M. CDT      11:00 A.M. EDT

The Association for Utility Line Design Professionals (UtilityLDPros) is offering this in-depth webinar series to help utility line design professionals better understand the physical and electrical characteristics, as well as the engineering design and installation requirements for overhead line conductors/cables.

Webinar Highlights:

  • What types of electric supply and communication conductors and cables are typically used on overhead distribution lines and why?
  • What are the physical and electrical characteristics of overhead line conductors and cables?
  • What determines the maximum tension that an overhead line conductor or cable will transfer to an overhead line structure?
  • What determines the maximum overhead line conductor or cable sag that must be considered in meeting required NESC clearances?
  • What overhead line conductor and cable design calculations must be made and how should the design be documented?
  • What engineering specifications should be provided and what quality control practices should be used in overhead line conductor and cable installations?

Webinar Features:

  • Up-to-date information
  • Real-time survey questions and participant Q&A
  • Practical examples of conductor/cable engineering designs
  • Actionable recommendations to improve your conductor/cable design and installation practices

Webinar Leaders: 
Ted Dimberio and John Miner
