GROUNDING METHODOLOGY IN A 550 kV AC POWER TRANSMISSION LINE IN THE AMAZON - A CASE STUDY
Keywords:atmospheric discharges, grounding system, transmission line, shutdowns
Atmospheric discharges are indispensable for the electrical sector due to their responsibility on the shutdown of the power lines, what may trigger a sequence of events that led the interconnected electrical system to collapse. The aim of this case study is to demonstrate the development of a viable methodology in order to reduce the resistance values of the grounding system of the power lines, reducing shutdown occurrences due to returning disruptive discharges, or backflashover, mitigating the damages caused to the electrical system and to society, in order to improve the quality of the electrical power distribution. Considering the factors of implementation costs, technical environmental viability, the encompassment of this solution for other structures lines, and the reduction of the implementation percentage, it was concluded that the most adequate solution to implement a more robust grounding system in the transmission power lines is the solution 03 tested on the tower 585, with a reduction of 66,98%.
