DEVELOPMENT OF SINGLE COPPER FEEDER MESSENGER WIRE FOR OVERHEAD CONTACT LINES

Feeder messenger wire type overhead contact lines are drawing attention because of their laborsaving potential for maintenance. Those that use two PH356 sq mm messenger wires are introduced in Tokyo, Japan, and those that use an SB-TACSR730 sq mm messenger wire are in the Kansai district. Regarding the number of messenger wires, the one-wire system is more advantageous, because it involves a smaller number of parts. As the material for the wire, copper is more advantageous than aluminum, because it does not require connection with different metals. To realize the advantages of the two systems, therefore, the authors developed a feeder messenger wire type overhead contact line that has only one copper messenger wire.
