The calculation methods are based on the following assumptions: the impedances are lumped parameters in each span of the transmission line; the line's capacitances are neglected; the contact resistance between the tower and the ground wire, the contact resistance between the tower and the faulted phase, are all neglected; the network is considered linear in the sinusoidal steady-state, state and only the fundamental frequency is considered.
Assuming the coupling between the date wire and ground wire is weakly coupled, the total coupling is a linear combination of contributions due to the inductive and capacitive coupling [16].
For a wire-return fence that's more than 1,000 feet long, extra grounding rods are needed, each connected to all the fence's ground wires. For a long fence where the soil is reasonably moist, the rods may be spaced every 3,000 to 5,000 feet.
The principal disadvantage of the configuration considered in the previous case is the fact that the ground wire connected to the tower, which the main objective is to capture the direct lightning strikes and consequently protect the power lines, was not taken into account.
