161 kV power tansmission line

Belongs to:
Overhead power transmission line
Description:

161 kV overhead cables belong to the extremely high voltage level and are primarily used in Asia, e.g. Taiwan. 161 kV transmission lines are operated with three-phase alternating current.

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