Upfront: I am not an electrical engineer and therefore apologize upfront if I am asking a stupid question.
TLDR; What are important / relevant metrics of high voltage power lines that can be computed solely using the metrics in the list below.
For a project regarding high voltage power lines in Europe I am given the SciGrid dataset and would like to compute 'important' characteristics of all power lines, so that I can make statements about the importance of individual lines. Of course, i.e. the number of cables will give insight about the importance of a high voltage line.
I have no background in electrical engineering and am therefore completely lost; even though I have found slides that are very relevant (I guess) I am unable to make use of them correctly.
Question 1: Is it even possible to compute reasonable characteristics using the given numbers below? The dataset does not include the diameter of the wires.
Question 2: What would be important / relevant metrics of high voltage power lines?
The dataset contains solely the following information about each line:
- number of cables
- number of wires
- frequency [Hz]
- length [m]
- resistance [ohm / km]
- reactance in [ohm / km]
- capacitance in [nF / km]
- maximum current thermal limit [A]
Any suggestions / recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
