Design Considerations of Submarine Power Links
Wallace, Alexander Robert Swan
The high installation and repair costs incurred in the transfer of electrical power across an expanse of water suggest careful consideration should be given to the choice of the route followed by the submarine cable. The methods of determining the best route, suggest-ed by this dissertation, do not consider unpredictable changes in submarine conditions. The dangers to a submarine cable can never be eliminated, but by correct choice of route these dangers may be minimised. This dissertation is intended to suggest a design procedure for choosing the best of several e possible routes suggested by initial consultation of hydrographic charts. The best route at the design stage may be modified slightly after a full investigation of the route is made on site.
