Abstract

The study of the dynamic behaviour of the overhead transmission line is highly relevant when the objective is to ensure its stability and maintenance. This paper aims to analyse an overhead transmission line under different types of random wind excitation that simulate natural phenomena in situ represented by white noise, Kani-Tajimi and First-order filter spectrum. The numerical model regards the Spectral Element Method (SEM) to overcome the dynamic analysis from low to high frequencies and simple implementation. The numerical analysis performed through the SEM investigates the overhead transmission receptance and natural frequency and compares with the results obtained by the Finite Element Method (FEM). Since SEM is an exact method of solution, there is no need for discretised continuous elements, which means less computational time-consuming and easy access to the model formulation. The vibration responses of the system suffered greater variations when the overhead transmission is under random wind excitation, which leads in challenging to design vibration control devices and performs its health monitoring. SEM model performed satisfactorily and accurate results in comparison with FEM. It shows to be an alternative tool for analysing the dynamics of structures.
