 Tampa Electric Completes ACCC Installation in Florida

 

With the help of contractor Service Electric, Tampa Electric (TECO) completed the installation of 1350 kcmil (684 mm^2) El Paso size ACCC conductor on four sections of 230 kV lines to resolve NERC Alert/LiDAR clearance violations. ACCC was less expensive than replacing the existing steel lattice towers with taller structures.  The El Paso size ACCC conductor, rated at 2,300 amps, may also enable increased power flow in the future. Tampa Electric has supplied the Tampa Bay Area with electricity since 1899 and currently serves over 700,000 residential, commercial and industrial customers.

Why Over 100 International Utilities Have Selected ACCC
 

  • High Capacity
  • Low Sag
  • High Strength
  • Fatigue Resistant
  • Corrosion Resistant
  • Excellent Self Damping
  • Easy to Install
  • Great for Long Spans
  • Very Tough
  • Extensively Proven
  • Excellent for N-1 Conditions
  • Lower Line Losses

 

The ACCC Conductor's added aluminum content (without a weight or diameter penalty) allows it to run cooler under any load condition which translates into reduced line losses. Reduced line losses can save fuel, emissions and generation capacity.


 

The Bottom Line:
 

In more than 300 cases, the ACCC conductor has provided more than 100 utilities the best economic solution for their specific project needs.

CTC Global created CCP to help system planners and engineers compare the ampacity, line losses, thermal and ice load sag, and economic aspects of nearly any conductor type and size, so the numerous advantages of the ACCC® conductor can be fully realized. The user simply selects the conductor types and sizes from drop down menus and enters the appropriate values & assumptions highlighted in the yellow boxes. The program is fully functional and uses standard industry formulas (such as IEEE 738-2006). Outputs are readily comparable to Sag10®, PLS CADD™ and other similar programs.
