Composite Core Conductors

March 29, 2022
Conductors are developed with the most severe wind and ice conditions in mind, withstanding a 2-in. full-density ice load all while improving the economics of the transmission grid.

Lamifil’s ACCC ICE+ range are lightweight and strong composite core conductors, combining good efficiency and excellent sag behavior under heavy mechanical loads. They are developed with the most severe wind and ice conditions in mind, withstanding a 2-in. full-density ice load all while improving the economics of the transmission grid. ACCC ICE+ conductors feature a high strength temperature resistant composite core that can work continuously at 180°C. Trap and/or z-shaped aluminum zirconium wires in a closed design are stranded around the core.

Using Lamifil’s soft thermal aluminum or high tensile strength aluminum zirconium strands makes this conductor up to 10% at (at 63% IACS) or 15% (at 61% IACS) stronger, respectively, than a standard ACCC design. At low operating temperatures, ACCC ICE+ conductors are up to 25% more efficient than ACSR. Composite core conductors can be designed and optimized for maximum electrical or mechanical loads by choosing the right combination of aluminum and core type.

Next to the standard series, custom designs are possible. Finally, ACCC ICE+ composite core conductors are easy to install with conventional methods and use exactly the same fittings as the normal ACCC conductors.
