INSULATORS FOR HIGH VOLTAGE TRANSMISSION LINES

By E. B. MERRIAM

 

The insulation and mechanical construction of a high tension transmission line constitute a problem which has been given a great deal of thought by electrical engineers, these being limiting factors of the voltage at which power can be transmitted. To those familiar with the mechanical construction and the insulation afforded by a pin insulator such as is used on high tension transmission lines at the present day, it is quite evident that there are strains present which are both mechanically and electrically objectionable. The problems present
