This 5-hour course is the final in a series of courses on the design of medium voltage electrical transmission lines. This volume is divided into two chapters: the first chapter addresses the design of single pole structures, and the second chapter explains how to design H-frame structures.

Specific Knowledge or Skill Obtained

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • How to calculate structural loading of single pole structures
  • The factors that limit span lengths
  • How to determine the maximum level ground span
  • How to calculate the maximum horizontal spans for a wood structure
  • How to use the “ground line method” for structural analysis
  • The factors involved in vertical spans calculations
  • The loading factors for H-frame structures
  • The impact of crossbraces on H-frame structures
  • The benefits of various V-brace configurations

Certificate of Completion

You will be able to immediately print a certificate of completion after passing a multiple-choice quiz consisting of 30 questions. PDH credits are not awarded until the course is completed and quiz is passed.
