F = f1  GB * (Q1/(f1*Q2))

 a * ey * (t1+t3t2) = 2432.7896
To solve the following equation:
The working stress F at tempature t1+t3, is given by the cubic equation
f2

(f2  F)  GB = 6319246.35
we get f2 = 121.8959 Kg/cm

8.2 Tension in conductor at maximum temperature and no wind
condition = Ten2 = f2*A = 968.9115 Kg
Max sag due to conductor = Wc*L / (8*Ten2) Sc= 3.2357
9 SAG DUE TO INSULATOR
From Fig 1, we get
Tension per insulator string = Ten2* r / Ni Teni1= 484.4558
Weight of conductor per String Insulator = Wc*r/Ni Wci= 1.5726
U1 = (li

U2 = ((li/2) + (di/2)) = 2.3043 m

[di/li] = 0.0608
Taking moments at 'P'
Teni1 * U1 *Sin( + ) = (Wci * L/2) * U1 * Cos( + ) + Wi * U2 *Cos( + )
Simplifying :
TP1 = (Wci*L/2) * U1 * Cos + Wi*U2*Cos  Teni1*U1*Sin = 862.3686
TP2 = Teni1*U1*Cos + Wci*(L/2)*U1*Sin + Wi*U2*Sin = 2275.2868

(TP1/TP2) = 0.3623
Sag due to Insulator = Si = U1*Sin( + d) = 1.7612 m
10 Total maximum sag of moose conductor = Sc+Si = Stot = 4.9969 m
11 Height of conductor above ground 15.3000 m
Height of jack bus/equipment below conductor 8.3000 m
Minimum Phase to phase clearance = 4.0000 m
Total maximum sag of moose conductor = Sc+Si = Stot = 4.9969 m

Taking moments at 'P'
TenI2 * U1 * Sin( + ) = (WcI*L/2) * U1 * Cos(+ ) + Wi * U2 *Cos(+ )
Simplifying :
TP1 = (WcI*L/2) * U1 * Cos + Wi*U2*Cos  TenI2*U1*Sin = 809.1771
TP2 = TenI2*U1*Cos + Wc*(L/2)*U1*Sin + Wi*U2*Sin = 4023.0083

(TP1/TP2) = 0.1985
SAG due to Insulator = Si1 = U1*Sin( + ) = 1.0443
3 SWING DUE TO CONDUCTOR (SWC)
Wind load acting on span = Pcc * L*r = 0.0000 Kg
Weight of conductor = Wc * L *r= 561.7260 Kg
From Fig 3:
Tan Y1 = (r*Pcc * L/r*Wc * L) = 0.0000
Y1 = Tan

(Pcc/Wc) = 0.0000
