 TS conductor corpJason huangCeo Small Business Cross-Cutting Advanced Conductor for hvdcCost of structures and conductors are a major component in project Capex. With no skin effect, larger conductors are better suited for hvdc lines to minimize line loss. Typical large conductors are heavy and saggy, and drive significant project Capex cost. With TS technology, we feature protected carbon core with the highest strength and lightest weight possible, and we can significantly reduce project Capex through fewer, shorter and lighter structures (TS conductors are also low sag because of virtually no thermal expansion in carbon core, and adequate modulus to minimize ice load sag or wind blowout). With DC circuit (two conductors in bipolar, or one conductor with earth return), the number of conductors are also less than AC circuit (3 phases - minimum three conductors). This further drives down project cost! With the minimum possible resistance (maximum packing of the most conductive aluminum, and smallest core possible, larger geometry facilitated via strong/light weight protected carbon core), we get the lowest line loss possible. This line loss reduction, compared to all other conductor alternatives, can be leveraged to subsidize and pay to cover project upfront expense, and drives for affordable grid upgrade. Furthermore, besides the incorporation of best possible materials from materials science today in building a conductor, the TS conductor is volume manufactured today (in california, soon to be in east coast as well, ready to deploy), the TS technology features the carbon composite core without glass fiber, with effective protection against mishandling in the field, shielding protection of the core especially its organic constituents inside against degradation from elements (moisture plasticization of organic matrix, oxidation of organic matrix at high temp, UV or ozone destruction of organic matrix), and compatibility with traditional work practice (same tool, same equipment, same methodology and same training as ACSR or ACSS conductors. All of these attributes are made possible because of the aluminum encapsulation protection for the pretensioned core. This allows for safety, reliability and longevity, designed-in the product, instead of relying on perfection from linecrew (which is unrealistic).
