All Alloy Aluminum Conductors (AAAC)

Bare homogeneous AAAC is concentric-lay-stranded consisting of aluminium alloy wires wrapped helically around a central aluminium alloy wire. It is similar in construction and appearance to AAC conductor.

AAAC conductor has many advantages. For example, higher strength to weight ratio than AAC conductor, better corrosion resistance than ACSR conductor, lower power losses than equivalent aluminium layer conductor, more simple accessories.

The aluminium alloy stranding consists of 7, 19, 37, 61 and 91 wires.

Application

AAAC is extensively used in overhead electric power transmission and distribution lines which required suitable mechanical strength and electrical conductivity.

AAAC is suitable for the long spans network.
