Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to show a new calculation model, which is able to calculate the incident energy in any places near an electric arc in case of high voltage, without neglecting of length and position of the electric arc. This method is developed especially for the electric transmission network above 35 kV and several meters of gap distances. It would be used to estimate the thermal load of a power line worker close an initiated electric arc during live-line maintenance by bare-hand and hot stick method as well.
