L = Length of span (m)

W = Weight per unit length of conductor (kg)
T = Tension in the conductor (kg)
Let the cordinatioin of P are x, y and assuming that at small length of OP = x
a) The weight (w, kg) w.x of conductor acting at a distance x/2 from O
b) The working tension T (kN) acting at point O

The maximum dip (sag) is represented by the value of y at either of support A and B.
At support A:
