Abstract

Electrical induction on a long fence in parallel with a typical ±400 kV HVDC transmission line under fault conditions is studied. The system is represented in detail by a digital computer program. The effect of factors such as fence location, fault location, fault resistance, number of fence wires, number of grounding points, and reflection of traveling waves is considered. It is found that shock energy levels associated with high voltage DC lines under fault conditions are much less than levels generally considered dangerous.
