Voltage Drop Across Transmission Lines

  1. Oct 26, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A pair of power transmission lines each have a 0.850 Ω resistance and carry 779 A over 9.85 km. If the rms input voltage is 39.5 kV, calculate the voltage at the other end.

    where is your own workings, relevant equations/concepts?
    identify what is what first and foremost if you are stuck

    Do you have the entire problem stated correctly? I think it might be 0.850 ohms/m instead.

    Plus you need to put forth some effort first.
