There are two purposes for this manuscript. The first is to examine the electromagnetic theory behind many of the calculations relevant to the design of high voltage power lines. These include electromagnetic propagation on wires above the earth, corona onset calculations, electrostatic fields near insulators and electromagnetic induction effects between high voltage transmission lines and other systems that share the right of way. This portion of the book can be used as the basis for further research in these areas. Sections of the book that require more advanced theory are indicated and can be skipped by the reader who is not interested in research. Following these sections (if necessary) are short introductions that provide a summary of the ideas introduced in the more advanced section. The second purpose is to show how the more general theory reduces to the theory commonly used by practicing engineers. Mastering this material will result in a better understanding of the limitations of the simplified theory of transmission lines that is often presented in power systems courses. As an adjunct to this, some practical aspects of designing high voltage transmission lines will be discussed. These include discussions of transmission line ampacity and sag calculations, a general approach to the selection of insulators and the physics behind switching surges and their consequences.

Robert G. Olsen received the BS degree in electrical engineering from Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ in 1968 and the MS and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Colorado, Boulder, CO in 1970 and 1974 respectively. For the latter two degrees, his area of specialization was electromagnetic theory. Prior to joining the faculty at Washington State University, Prof. Olsen worked for Westinghouse Georesearch Laboratory in Boulder CO. He has been a member of the electrical engineering faculty at Washington State University since 1973 and holds the rank of professor. During that time he has been an NSF Faculty Fellow at GTE Laboratories in Waltham, MA, a visiting scientist at ABB Corporate Research in Västerås, Sweden and at the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) in Palo Alto, CA and a Visiting Professor at the Technical University of Denmark. His research interests include electromagnetic interference from power lines, the electromagnetic environment of power lines, electromagnetic wave propagation, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), electromagnetic shielding and electromagnetic scattering. His work in these areas has resulted in approximately 85 publications in refereed journals and approximately 150 conference publications/presentations. He is also one of the authors of the AC Transmission Line Reference Book – 200 kV and Above which is published by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). He is a Fellow of the IEEE, an Honorary Life member of the IEEE Electromagnetic Compatibility Society and has served as Technical Editor of the IEEE Electromagnetic Compatibility Society Newsletter, and as Co - Technical Program Chair of the 2005 Electromagnetic Compatibility Conference in Zurich, Switzerland. He is also the past United States National Committee representative to the International Council on Large Electrical Systems (CIGRE) Study Committee 36 (Electromagnetic Compatibility) and past chair of the IEEE Power Engineering Society AC Fields and Corona Effects Working Groups. In addition, he is past Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Electromagnetic Compatibility and Radio Science.
