Q2. What is Phase Spacer in Transmission Lines?
Figure 2 Interphase Spacer in Transmission Lines
The phase spacer dampers are insulated rod type spacers having the support of phase conductors.
They control the two-phase conductor distance.
Their shape is a slender rod having cross-sections that are installed among phase conductors of a closed circuit.
These cross-sections play an integral role in supporting the phase connections of the circuit.
In different circumstances, when the transmission line system begins vibrating, because of icing, wind, electromagnetism, the phase spacer installed will bear the pressure.
Q3. What is the Working Mechanism of Spacer Dampers?
Rayphen spacer damper dissipates the energy of vibration on various sub-conductors by means of some elastomer parts.
Interestingly, the spacer damper’s movable rubber part performs as a damping part in order to take in the energy of aeolian vibrations (wind vibrations).
It reduces the chances of power fittings to get wear off because of the conductor’s relative motion.
In this way, the fittings are saved from damages. It also increases the longevity and safety of the entire line.
Spacer dampers are electrical power fittings that not only maintain the conductors far from each other but also reduce the conductor’s galloping.
The phase galloping is suppressed by space bars. This causes the weakening of galloping and also maintains the air gaps among conductors.

Q12. On What Factors Vibrations are Produced in Transmission Lines?
The direction and steady speed of wind are the reasons behind vibration production in transmission lines.
The span length of all the overhead transmission lines has a relation with vibration frequency and wavelength.
Conductor diameter and material also contribute to the aeolian vibration production.
The amplitude of transmission line conductors decreases as soon as you install a spacer damper.
The same goes with ground wires.
As a result, a stable frequency is achieved.
All the wind vibration levels and fatigue removal is controlled by this.
Ultimately, the conductor’s lifespan increases.
Q13. What Needs Attention During Spacer Damper Installation?
Before installation, calculate the correct span length and catenary length very precisely.
If the dampers are not placed at correct span lengths, it will cause trouble.

Figure 7 Successfully Installed Spacer Damper in Transmission Line
Q17. What Should be the Installation Distance of Spacer Dampers?
The installation distance of spacer dampers is not specific.
There are different distances for every spacer damper.
It is generally determined by the designer.
Every Rayphen spacer damper manufacturer has a different value of installation distance.
However, it is generally believed that conductors must be 200-300 ft apart from each other.
This is the only way you can avoid span clashing.
Spacer dampers not only provide the necessary spacing among different conductors but also dissipate the vibration energy.
Q18. By Which Measures Can You Determine the Installation Position of Space Dampers?
The only measure for determining the right position for a spacer damper to get installed is by calculating the span length.
Consult with the spacing chart provided with the spacer damper and mark the conductor at an appropriate distance.

These Rayphen spacer dampers are meant for controlling the oscillation of the conductor and vibrations produced by wind.
They also maintain a fair distance between conductors even in case of short-circuiting.
The arm, frame, and keeper are an aluminum alloy made.
Such spacers have good quality rust-free bolts and nuts.
Q20. How to Differentiate Between Triple and Quadruple Spacer Dampers?
The basic function and purpose of the Rayphen triple spacer damper and quadruple spacer damper are the same.
However, they are different in their shape and appearance.
A triple spacer damper is more like a fan-shaped or triangular spacer damper used for three cables.
On the other hand, the quadruple spacer damper has four clamps and is a square damper.
It is meant for four-conductor cables.
Q21. What is the Method of Replacement of Spacer Dampers on 500kV Transmission Lines?
There is no special method of replacing a spacer damper on a 500kV transmission line.
If the spacer damper needs replacement, open the bolts with the same turn fastener used for its installation.
Open the keepers and remove the clamps from the conductor.
With installation instructions, install the new one.
Q22. For Which Types of Conductors Using a Spacer Damper is Reliable?
Rayphen spacer dampers are used reliably for all overhead transmission line conductors, including aluminum conductors.
They are good for ACSR, AAC, and AAAC conductors.
These are specially designed for high voltage overhead transmission lines.
Q23. Can You Use Spacer Damper for Insulated Wires?
No, you cannot use spacer dampers for insulated wires.
This is because normally the overhead transmission line cables are not insulated.

For this purpose, you have to use a Rayhen spacer damper of relatively high resonance frequency to absorb the major vibrations produced.
Q25. What is Spacer Damper Price?
The price of a spacer damper is US$3.00-US$16.00.
The price totally depends on the manufacturers and the size of the spacer damper.
It also is dependent on the manufacturing material.
If the material is made of good quality, the spacer damper will be expensive than the rest of the dampers having a similar size.
Q26. Is There Any Alternative to Spacer Damper?
Yes, you can use vibration dampers instead of spacer dampers.
Figure 8 Vibration Damper
There is a condition to that.
If you want to use a vibration damper rather than a spacer damper, you have to use a spacer separately.
It is because vibration dampers only deal with vibration absorbance.
They are not related to providing space among the conductors.
For this reason, spacer dampers are more preferred as they perform two functions at the same time.
Q27. Can You Get Spacer Dampers in Various Sizes?
Yes, various sizes of spacer dampers are available to purchase.
There are multiple sizes available according to your need.
It depends on the application and size of the conductor.
