Special Issue "DC and AC Overhead Transmission Lines from Low to Extra-High Voltages"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (11 August 2019).
The first comprehensive power system (generator, transmission line, and loads) in New York (Pearl Street) was created in 1882. From that year, the spread of electrical transmission grids has been so exorbitant and successful that the National Academy of Engineering has rightly stated that the electrical grid is the greatest engineering achievement of the 20th century. There is no doubt that, even if insulated cables are also playing a growing role in HV and EHV levels (in LV and MV they are widely employed), existing overhead lines remain a fundamental presence in the electric grid. This Special Issue is devoted to all the topics pertaining to overhead lines for ac and dc transmission:
- sequence-impedance computations
- electric and mechanic simulations
- new concepts in planning and design
- more environmental-friendly towers
- new conductors
- dynamic thermal ratings
- fault location in earthed and unearthed networks
- mechanical performance
- insulator design (pollution)
- cost comparison
- transmission with higher-order phase lines
- direct current transmission (technical and economical comparison of DC and AC lines)
- ice load and de-icing
- earth-wire selection (earth-wire comprising optical fibres OPGW, and insulated earth-wire for power loss reduction).
- overhead line-fittings
- conductor vibrations (galloping)
- the assessment of lightning performance
- reliability, availability, and resilience
- tower earthing including its measurement

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
