Aluminum Conductor Composite Reinforced (ACCR)
Aluminum Conductor Composite Reinforced (ACCR) .
ACCR is an all-aluminum-based conductor designed as a drop-in replacement for ACSR and ACSS.
Its properties enable transmission capacity increases, up to twice as much or more, on existing structures.
While matching or improving tensions and clearances.
The round-wire construction is composed of a multi-strand.
Aluminum-matrix core surrounded by aluminum-zirconium outer wires that are round in shape.
Round-wire frequently offers the largest capacity increase because of its low weight.
Allowing it to operate at high temperatures with less sag than steel core conductors and other types of construction.
