Design of Steel Transmission Pole Structures (ASCE/SEI 48-11 by American Society of Civil Engineers

By American Society of Civil Engineers

This normal offers a uniform foundation for the layout, detailing, fabrication, checking out, meeting, and erection of metal tubular constructions for electric transmission poles. those guidance observe to cold-formed unmarried- and multipole tubular metal buildings that aid overhead transmission strains. The layout parameters are appropriate to guyed and self-supporting buildings utilizing numerous foundations, together with concrete caissons, metal piling, and direct embedment. regular ASCE/SEI 48-11 replaces the former variation (ASCE/SEI 48-05) and revises a few formulation which are according to different present criteria. This commonplace encompasses a special observation and appendixes with explanatory and supplementary info. This normal should be a main reference for structural engineers and development managers thinking about designing and construction electric transmission traces, in addition to engineers and others focused on the electrical energy transmission undefined.

Operation and Control in Power Systems

In energy method engineering, virtually all result of sleek regulate idea will be utilized. Such an program will lead to a less expensive, easier and better carrier caliber operation and in much less inconvenience relating to irregular stipulations. For its analytical remedy, keep watch over approach layout ordinarily calls for the decision of a mathematical version from which the keep watch over process could be derived.

Power Electronics Applied to Industrial Systems and Transports, Volume 1: Synthetic Methodology to Converters and Components Technology

Energy electronics relies at the switching working mode of semiconductor elements. in this foundation, the recommendations of style (voltage or present) and reversibility of interconnected resources give the opportunity to use a technique for the synthesis of varied sorts of converters. right here the writer provides the most important kinds of parts to be had, constantly from a user’s perspective, with the gate drive/fire keep watch over and different auxiliary circuits which are required for his or her right functioning (snubbers, for example).

Civil works for hydroelectric facilities : guidelines for life extension and upgrade

''Civil Works for Hydroelectric amenities: instructions for all times Extension and Upgrade'' explores methodologies and methods for making use of rehabilitation engineering to getting older hydroelectric infrastructure. This record presents guidance for all times extension and improve of hydroelectric works to be used through vendors, operators, regulators, and engineers contemplating infrastructure rehabilitation or substitute.

Example text

Reinforcement at these bolted connections can aid the pole section in resisting these induced forces. Often, spanning the bend lines of the pole section with a plate washer can add to the strength of the thru-bolt connection. in an area of minor stress, the loss of moment capacity may be insignificant. If the hole is in an area of high stress, the loss of moment capacity could be significant and should be taken into consideration. 7. Bolt shear strength is not given much consideration in most wood pole connections because of the large bearing area and the use of cleated washers to distribute loads.

3. Historical climatic conditions in the utility’s service area may indicate loads in excess of legislated loads. These may include wind or ice, or any combination thereof, at a specified temperature. 4. Local terrain and line routing procedures will determine the individual structure orientation criteria. 5. , or the need for “hot line” maintenance capability. 6. Individual utility planning criteria and experience may require the need for a load condition to prevent progressive line failure (cascading).

For example, typical attachments that induce heavy concentrated forces caused by davit arm or X-brace connections with traditional through-bolt details can introduce forces significant enough to cause a local buckling of the pole wall in the region of the bolting hardware. Reinforcement at these bolted connections can aid the pole section in resisting these induced forces. Often, spanning the bend lines of the pole section with a plate washer can add to the strength of the thru-bolt connection.
