Abstract

s conductor materials. This Al/Ca composite has shown promising early corrosion and elevated temperature performance test results, but additional research is needed to determine its fatigue and creep strengths, as well as its susceptibility to electrotransport phenomena and other factors. The design process, production methods, and physical properties of the new composite conductor are discussed. An economic and thermal analysis of this conductor material is also presented.
