Fiber Optics in High Voltage Transmission Environments

EE 566 October 8, 2003

my reason for choosing this topic
My Reason for Choosing This Topic…
  • Find a Combination Between Fiber Optics and Power Engineering
  • This is looking at Fiber Optics in an alternative industry

overview
Overview
  • Basics of fiber optic and electrical transmission lines
  • Different uses of fiber optic cable in the transmission grid system
  • Employment options
  • Conclusion/summary
can high voltage electricity be sent through fiber optics cable

Can high voltage electricity be sent through fiber optics cable?

No conclusive evidence or research has shown that it is possible.

Only the use of converters, still not practical for long distances and high voltage.

why use fiber optics with transmission lines
Why use fiber optics with transmission lines?
  • Sensing and detection of electrical faults and failure(i.e –Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition Systems – S.C.A.D.A)
  • Can be used as a neutral or ground.
  • No EMC/EMI issues.
  • Communication between plants and substations
  • Extensive ROW (Right Of Way). The cost advantages of existing ROW makes utilities attractive line-leasing partners for many communications carriers.
combination of two different concepts
Fiber optic cables

Transmits light (photons)

Primarily for communications

Electric cables

Transmits electricity (electrons)

Primarily for powering electrical devices

Combination of Two Different Concepts
most commonly used fiber optic
Most commonly used Fiber Optic
  • All Dielectric Self Supporting (ADSS)
  • Wrap type
  • Optical Ground Wire (OPGW)
details of adss cables
Details of ADSS Cables
  • High fiber count
  • Cheaper than OPGW
  • Installed along electrical transmission lines

details of the opgw
Details of the OPGW
  • OPGW is a composite wire which serves as a conventional overhead ground wire, with the added benefit of providing high-capacity and reliable fiber optic communication.

common problems
Common Problems
  • Contamination – fertilizer, pesticides, exhaust, emissions, salt fog. Can only be solved on the design level, difficult because of high voltage design requirements
  • Space Potential – Electrical potential induced on fiber optic cables
  • Dry Band Arcing – Caused by the induced current during wet conditions
space potential
Space Potential
  • Induced voltages can be in the tens of kV range.
  • Causes dry-band voltages and currents.
  • Causes huge and powerful electric fields.

dry band arcing
Dry Band Arcing
  • Caused by Space Potential and frequency of current in the cable.
  • Accurse in wet environments
  • Because of high induced voltage, current can be as low as 1.5mA.

employment options
Employment Options
  • Phillips
  • Corning
  • Fiber Planners
  • The Furukawa Electric Co.
  • Most power utility companies (i.e. National Grid, Alliant Energy, Duke Energy)
conclusion summary
Conclusion/Summary
  • Many research possibilities.
  • Very interesting employment.
  • Good chance of becoming an expert.
  • High Voltage – BE CAREFUL
