# What should be the clearance above ground for overhead lines?

## What should be the clearance above ground for overhead lines?

(4) For extra-high voltage lines the clearance above ground shall not be less than 5.2 metres plus 0.3 metre for every 33,000 volts or part thereof by which the voltage of the line exceeds 33,000 volts: Provided that the minimum clearance along or across any street shall not be less than 6.1 metres.

How far off the ground should power lines be?

According to the National Electrical Safety Code, telephone lines must be at least 14 feet above the ground and electrical lines must be at least 15-½ feet above the ground. Sometimes, though, the lines will hang lower than the allowable minimum heights.

What is the minimum distance for overhead service drop clearance over alleys?

Eighteen feet (5486 mm)—over public streets, alleys, roads or parking areas subject to truck traffic.

## Which type of insulator is used on 132 kV transmission lines?

Disc type insulators: The pin insulator is used in power distribution for the voltage up to 33kV. It is placed on the cross arm of the supporting tower. The pin insulator has grooves on the upper end for keeping the conductor.
