161 kV power tansmission line

Belongs to:
Overhead power transmission line

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
