Vegetation fire characteristics and the potential impacts on overhead line performance


The Technical Brochure B2.45 deals with the subject of vegetation fires under overhead lines. The brochure is the first document on this subject that deals with the subject as widely as possible and includes most of the disciplines involved in fire. It covers inter alia the financial implications of fire, safety aspects, breakdown of a gas during a fire, weather and fire tracking systems and also proposes a model for the breakdown during a fire. The document contains a long list of references as well as an appendix with the mathematical treatment of the breakdown as well as the conductivity of a flame. It is a document that will be of great value to anybody dealing with most aspects of fire.
