Design and Analysis of Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastic Electric Pole for Power Transmission

K.KIRAN KUMAR, B.SHESHAGIRI RAO

Abstract


Engineers are increasingly tasked with designing and operating structures that incorporate the philosophy of resiliency across a variety of critical infrastructure sectors. Electric distribution and transmission systems are examples of the critical infrastructure sectors. The majority of existing electrical poles supporting electric distribution systems in the United States are made out of wood.

It is estimated that up to 3.6 million existing electric wood poles have to be replaced every year. One of the primary hardening strategies is upgrading wooden electric poles and supporting structures with stronger materials that withstand hurricane-force winds.
