PowerWorld Transmission Line Parameter Calculator – TransLineCalc

The PowerWorld Transmission Line Parameter Calculator (TransLineCalc) is a tool designed to compute characteristic line parameters given the type of conductor and the tower configuration of a three-phase overhead transmission line.

The parameters computed are the resistance R, reactance X, susceptance B, and conductance G.  These values are computed as distributed (per unit of distance), lumped or total (for a specific line distance), and in per-unit.

The TransLineCalc tool is completely integrated with Simulator, which means that TransLineCalc can be launched from Simulator and the per-unitized results are automatically passed to the selected transmission line in Simulator.
