Although steel reinforced aluminium conductor is extens-ively used for overhead transmission and distribution line, it suffers from major deficiencies due to inherent limitations of EC aluminium and steel core being used to increase the strength. Excessive bimetallic corrosion, fatigue failure and bird caging (bulging of strands) reduce the line life considerably while the electro-magnetic losses in steel core increase the cost of power transmission.
