Designing a transmission line

  1. 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Design a dc transmission line that can transmit 225 MW of electricity 185 km with
    only a 2.0% loss. The wires are to be made of aluminum and the voltage is 660 kV.

    2. Relevant equations
    P= IV = I^2 * R
    R= p(L/A)
    Power loss = Pf - Pi
