Abstract

In this paper, the impacts of a very high voltage overhead DC transmission power lines, were
estimated and investigated. An Ultra High Voltage Direct Current Lines (UHVDCL) was
proposed to transmit about 6000 Megawatts power for 2800 Km distance from Iraq to
Romania, as a gate to European Countries, through Turkey under DESERTEC Concepts.
Recent technological developments and practices have shown that, +/- 800 Kilovolt Bipolar
UHVDC line can undertake this task quite well. Since the voltage is very high in comparison
to the average transmission voltages it is necessary to investigate the values of Electrostatic
and Electromagnetic field densities under or in the vicinity of subject transmission line. Such
very high voltage conductors are kept high enough from the ground so that their adverse
effects to environment should be as low as possible. Similar lines have been installed in China
for 2070 kilometers distance and transmitted 6400 Megawatts recently. In this case study, +/-
800 KV line conductors have been kept 18 meters (Minimum) from the ground. This applied
distance has been adopted in the proposed line. Calculations made by using the generally
employed formulas have shown in this study that the effect of Electrostatic and
Electromagnetic field intensities are below the limits recommended by ICNIRP (International
Commission of Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection).
