What is the purpose of Vibration Damper in power line?

A power line vibration damper’s primary purpose is to lessen the amplitude of vibrations in overhead transmission lines that are brought on by wind galloping or other environmental factors that might generate vibrations in the line conductors.

These vibrations can be induced by wind galloping (or) other environmental conditions.

When it comes to dampers that are used to prevent vibration in transmission lines, the Stockbridge damper is the most widely distributed.

It is a tuned mass damper that is utilized for the purpose of dampening wind-induced vibrations on slender structures which include

• Cable-Stayed Bridges,

• Long Cantilevered Signage, and

• Overhead Power Lines.
