Need to know proximity effect in transmission lines

Alternating flux develops within the adjacent conductors that carry alternating current. This causes the circulating current to flow within the conductor, creating a current distribution within the transmission lines. However, the distribution is usually non-uniform in nature. All these factors increase the apparent resistance of the conductor. Now, this directly affects the conductors’ apparent resistance. The voltage drops, and power is lost along the transmission lines as the resistance increases. This entire phenomenon is known as the proximity effect. And these effects are easily detectable among the tower accessories after their installation. So, what would be the outcome of the proximity effect on the transmission lines? Let’s find out.   […]
