Optimal Design of Steel Lattice Transmission Line Towers
Lattice towers are used for power lines of all voltages, and are the most common type for high-voltage transmission lines. The design optimization of these structures has always been a difficult task due to a large number of design variables. Some studies have already been performed in the context of optimization of transmission line tower structures. In this chapter, the efficiency of colliding bodies optimization (CBO), enhanced colliding bodies optimization (ECBO), vibrating particles system (VPS), and a hybrid algorithm called MDVC-UVPS are investigated in optimum design of three latticed steel towers. The procedure considers discrete values of cross-sectional areas.
