Introduction
An electric transmission line conductor has four parameters: R, L, C, and G These are uniformly distributed along the whole length of the line and representation of these parameters at any point on the line is not possible. These are usually expressed as resistance, inductance, capacitance and conductance per kilometre.

## Performance of Transmission Line

The transmission lines are categorized as three types1) Short transmission line The line length is up to 80 km with an operating voltage up to 20 kV 2) Medium transmission line The line length is between 100 km and 250 km with an operating voltage ranging from 20 kV to 100 kV 3) Long transmission line The line length above 250 km and operating voltage above 100 kV

## Performance of Transmission Line

performance of transmission line can be determined by its efficiency and voltage regulation.

Power sent from sending end - line losses = Power delivered at receiving end. Voltage regulation of transmission line is measure of change of receiving end voltage from no-load to full load condition.

## ABCD Parameters of Transmission Line

The circuit of a 2 port network is shown in the diagram below.

Vs, Is supply end voltages and currents VR, IR receiving end voltages and currents ABCD parameters or the transmission line parameters provide the link between Vs, Is and VR, IR considering the circuit elements to be linear in nature.

## ABCD Parameters of Transmission Line

Parameter A = VS / VR B = VS / IR

C = I S / VR
D = I S / IR

## Short Transmission Line

The transmission lines which have length less than 80 km are generally referred as short transmission lines. For short length, the shunt capacitance of this type of line is neglected and other parameters like electrical resistance and inductance of these short lines are lumped, hence the equivalent circuit is represented as given below,

## Short Transmission Line

Is = Ir. Now if we observe the vector diagram carefully, we will get, Vs Vr + Ir.R.cosr + Ir.X.sinr Vs Vr + Ir.R.cosr + Ir.X.sinr as the it is assumed that s r Vs = Vr + IrZ and Is = Ir Compairing with

A = 1, B = Z, C = 0 and D = 1. AD-BC=1

## Medium Transmission Line

When the length of an overhead transmission line is between 100 km and 250 km with an operating voltage ranging from 20 kV to 100 kV, it is considered as a medium transmission line. Due to the line length being considerably high, admittance Y of the network does play a role in calculating the effective circuit parameters For this reason the modelling of a medium length transmission line is done using lumped shunt admittance along with the lumped impedance in series to the circuit.

## Medium Transmission Line

These lumped parameters of a medium length transmission line can be represented using two different models, namely1)Nominal representation. 2)Nominal T representation.

(1) (2)

## Medium Transmission LineNominal representation.

Now substituting equation (2) to equation (1)

## Medium Transmission LineNominal representation.

Comparing equation (4) and (5) with the standard ABCD parameter equations We get,

## Medium Transmission LineNominal T Representation

Vs and VR is the supply and receiving end voltages respectively, and Is and IR is the supply and receiving end currents respectively Let M be a node at the midpoint of the circuit, and the drop at M, be given by Vm.

## Medium Transmission LineNominal T Representation

Applying KVL to the above network we get,

## Medium Transmission LineNominal T Representation

Now the sending end current is,

## (9) Substituting the value of VM to equation (9) we get,

Again comparing equation (8) and (10) with the standard ABCD parameter equations,
