    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Sets out requirements and tests necessary for homogeneous bare electrical conductors for overhead power transmission, and constructed of hard-drawn copper wires. A range of wire sizes and their properties are provided.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements and tests for homogeneous bare electrical conductors for overhead power transmission, and constructed of hard-drawn copper wires.NOTES:1 Appendix A gives methods to calculate conductor properties.2 Appendix B gives the coefficient of linear expansion and the theoretical basis for the calculation of modulus of elasticity.3 Appendix C lists information which should be supplied with enquiries and orders for conductors.
