With more than 600 people in attendance, CTC Global, along with Marte Engineering, Federal University of Santa Maria, Engelineas and Transelec presented a number of technical papers at the XVIII ERIAC – Ibero American regional Cigre meeting at Foz do Iguacu, Brazil (May 19 – 23).

Highlights of the presentations included case studies that considered ACCC ULS conductors as the best solution for long span applications, the advantages of ACCC conductor in terms of reducing transmission line losses, and the general benefits that ACCC conductor can bring to new and reconductoring transmission lines.

Speakers included Professor Mauricio Sperandio from University of Santa Maria; Juliana Nobre de Mello Motta from Marte Engineering, Vitor Fonseca from CTC Global, and Ruy Menezes from Engelineas.

Conference attendees represented T&D stakeholders from Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru, Colombia, Chile, Spain, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Portugal, among others.

    ACCC conductor is definitely superior to conventional AAC and ACSR conductors (75to 100 degree C). Can the ACCC be used on distribution lines and if so how the equipment terminals need to modify to which ACCC is connected due to its high operation temperature.

    Does high temp. ACCC effect/ avoid the birds sitting over the conductor
