Paper Title:
Analytical Study on Wind-Induced Vibration and its Control of Transmission Towers in Mountainous Area
  Abstract

A method for analyzing wind-induced vibration and its control of transmission tower-line system in mountainous area is described. The method is applied to a real transmission line containing two self-supporting steel angle towers, 3 spans of conductors and ground lines together with insulators. Analyses are conducted for the out-of-plane wind direction, and the fluctuating wind load on tower-line system is simulated by harmony superposition method and davenport spectrum. The numerical results indicate that the wind-induced response and its control effect are mainly related to the stiffness of the towers, rather than the mounting height or the spans of the power lines. At the same time, viscoelastic dampers fixed on the main members can suppress the wind-induced displacement of the towers effectively.
