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
