New Construction/Reconductor 69KV Transmission Line

This Project is based on the Line-98, a 69KV transmission line in the city of Muscatine. The Muscatine Power & Water want us to analyze the economic and system viability for reconductoring or new construction of an existing transmission line to meet growing load demand. Our focus will be on the chooses of new types of conductors and additional locations for replacing the poles.


  • 1. Deliver a viable, robust, and complete design for each option.
  • 2. Learn from being involved in a major design process.
  • 3. Learn about and research power systems topics that we do not know, but need for the project.
