State two properties of high tension wires.

High tension wire is the wire used for transmission of electrical energy having high voltage over long distances.

  • They require to have low resistance to minimise heat losses and be able to withstand high voltages.
  • They are non-corrosive

A typical high voltage power cable requires the following:

  • A conductor
  • Insulation that can be used for underground and under the water
  • Cable and joints to ensure that the high voltage impact is controlled and doesn’t lead to its insulation breaking down
