The Problem Power transmission lines, generally, have cables that have significant weight of their own. This causes the cable to sag. Some amount of sag is also necessary to account for the thermal expansion and contraction during seasonal changes. The sag can be controlled by adjusting the tension in the cable by applying a force (T) at the two ends. T T w(x) x Load distribution
