AAAC aluminum alloy conductors are extensively used for overhead distribution and transmission lines adjacent to ocean coastlines where there can be a problem of corrosion in the steel of an ACSR construction. The aluminum alloy conductors are used in place of single-layer ACSR conductors (i.e., #6 to #4/0 AWG)to reduce power losses in overhead distribution and transmission lines. The inductive effect of the ACSR steel core is eliminated, hence increasing the operating efficiency of the line.
AAAC is a high-strength aluminum alloy, concentric-lay-stranded conductor. It is similar in construction and appearance to the AAC all-aluminum conductor.
The AAAC conductor is manufactured in accordance with the requirements of the latest issue of ASTM B399. The AAAC conductor is manufactured from a heat-treated, magnesium-silicide high-strength 6201-T81 aluminum alloy.
The aluminum strands consist of a concentric stranded cable of 7, 19, 37 or more wires. The sizes and strands listed are common examples used in overhead lines. Metric (mm) sizes are also available.
