High tension wires are wires having low resistance.
High tension wires
High tension wires are thick wires of low resistance used for transferring a large amount of current to electricity over long distances. These wires are made by thick by taking the large number of thin copper wires & twisting them to form a thick cable.
Properties of high tension wires
- High-tension wire is a form of wire that is used to transmit high-voltage electrical energy over long distances.
- Low resistance is needed to reduce heat losses, and they must be able to withstand high voltages.
