This report presents design and construction considerations necessary to achieve low levels of inherent interference and also maintenance and investigation procedures required to prevent or eliminate specific sources of interference. This report is applicable to lines of 69 Kv to 132 Kv. The conclusions of this report indicate that the methods and procedures to limit the interference from overhead lines to the acceptable level established in Phase III of this contract, are desirable, feasible, and economically justifiable. For many progressive utility companies, techniques of interference reduction are routine operations. These techniques of interference reduction are 1 Proper selection and testing of materials, 2 proper construction practices, and 3 proper maintenance procedures. A section of the report is devoted to the economics of construction and maintenance of overhead transmission lines for minimum interference generation. This type of construction and maintenance is desirable for numorous intangible reasons and is, also, economically feasible. Maintenance aimed at interference reduction is, furthermore, preventive maintenance against power outages. Interference sources, when located and repaired, eliminate faults which would probably develop to line outages. Author
