HV Cable Transition Towers: A Collection of Design Possibilities

Transmission Structures

Cable transition transmission towers are usually of special interest since they offer a broad range of different design and equipment possibilities. Since these structures often adjoin public areas, visual impact has taken on growing relevance, especially given that cable terminations are comparatively bulky objects to place in elevated positions. Security against risk of explosive failure is even more important, which has been driving more such installations toward composite-housed terminations. INMR presents a collection of cable transition tower designs to illustrate some of the different solutions adopted worldwide.
