Abstract : This report examines the parameters for systems of multiwire cages carrying high voltages above ground in order to minimize the maximum electric field on the surface of the wires. For the two-wire case, the following methods of calculation were compared (1) a simple geometric theory (SGT); (2) a complete geometric theory (CGT); (3) an infinite series of images ( exact solution for given constraints); and (4) a computer-based method of moments (MOM) solution. The MOM results were calculated for cages with 2 through 6 wires, and for 12 wires. This work resulted in two design procedures-one based on minimum wire spacing for a given wire diameter, and the other based on minimizing the total wire cross section of the cage. These procedures are presented along with three examples that include antenna and transmission line applications.... Method of moments, Two-wire case, Simple geometric theory, Image theory.
