345 kV power transmission line

Belongs to:
Overhead power transmission line
Description:

345 kV overhead power lines belong to the extremely high voltage level and are primarily used in North America and Asia. 345 kV transmission lines are operated with three-phase alternating current.

Frequency ranges:
  • 50–60 Hz
Type of field:
electric and magnetic
