Transmission of electrical power for long distance is one of the major challenges for electrical engineers over the years. The first and foremost target it is to ensure the transport of electric power with minimal losses over the distance. This paper proposes to employ the low frequency alternating current (LFAC) with (16 2/3Hz) instead of the trad...

The paper presents the analytical solutions for the electromagnetic field components in pure TE and TM (Transversal Electric / Magnetic) modes, in the case of a cylindrical dielectric-conductor open waveguide. The expressions are used in order to investigate the efficiency of power transmission in axial direction considering a set of input variable...
