1. Corrosion Resistance: AAAC exhibits excellent corrosion resistance specially in sea coast areas and in polluted industrial areas due to absence of steel core.
2. Lower Power losses: Since AAAC is homogeneous (with all strands of Aluminium Alloy) with no steel component the resistance of AAAC is lower as compared to ACSR.
3. Higher Ampacity: AAAC can carry atleast 15-20% extra current as compared to ACSR of equal size
Longer Life: Experience in foreign countries shows that All Aluminium Alloy Conductors are in service for over 60 years, which is about double the life of ACSR Conductors.
aluminum alloy conductor Used as bare overhead conductor for power transmission lines with various voltage levels, primary and secondary distribution.the product is Designed utilizing a high-strength aluminum alloy to achieve a high strength-to-weight ratio; affords better sag characteristics.Aluminum alloy gives AAAC higher resistance to corrosion than ACSR.
