Abstract:

This paper describes the installation of the optical fiber cable developed by Furukawa Electric Co., Ltd. to an existing overhead ground wire. Conventional comunications systems with power-transmission lines have employed power-line carrier systems and systems involving coaxial cable inserted in an overhead ground wire. Such systems have a considerable number of problems, such as high cost and poor quality due to the insufficient separation of communications signals from the high voltage of power conductors, or to noise induction from the transmission line. However, with the appearance of optical fiber it has become possible to use fiber communications in power transmission systems. Practical applications have been developed. Author
