“How can we make a sturdy conductive cable?”


Transmission lines need large amounts of cables to travel long distances. However, this means that they will also need to be sturdy and rigid while being lightweight. This can be solved by placing a steel holder wire surrounded by aluminum wires in a setup known as ACSR Cables (Aluminium-conductor steel-reinforced cable). ACR cables are widely utilized in India, forming the bulk of power transmission cables.
