Get ready for evidentiary hearings!

Filed under:Upcoming Events — posted by admin on November 20, 2009 @ 8:04 am

The Brookings CapX 2020 evidentiary hearings begin November 30, and it’s a road show across southern Minnesota.  See schedule below.

Also, I’d noticed the numbers are off on the amps on the charts for their EMF modeling calculations (and amps mean everything).   SO, I found the chart, they’re way off, but not by a factor of 10 as I’d thought!  For the line configuration, 115kV 945kcmil ACSS the amperage is more like 12

Conductor Specs – SW MN 345kV Exhibit 35, Appendix 7

Here’s the relevant part, remember the range they modeled for was 3xx amps to 1,1xx amps (don’t have it here and can’t remember) and the one furthest to the left was 874 amps.  The chart is in chapter 6:

conductorspecs

874 amps is about half of what the line is rated for.  The column on the far left is the amps, and the column on the far right is the size in kCmil of the conductor.  The columns in between are the various MVA ratings, and the yellow highlighted ones are for bundled 954kCmil, MVA of 2068-2085.  So the amps can be far higher than what they say, meaning the EMF levels will be far higher.
