FACE provides faster solutions for determining the overall corona and field effects of high voltage AC, DC, or AC/DC hybrid transmission lines, such as:
- Corona loss;
- Audible noise;
- Radio interference;
- Magnetic and static electric fields;
- Ionized fields, ion charges, and ion currents.
FACE calculates the audible noises and corona losses using empirical formulas developed by industry standards. It computes radio interferences with the semi-analytical method, where generating functions available in the literature have been implemented as a user-selectable parameter. A frequency-domain model analysis technique is utilized to rigorously examine the effects of transmission line geometrics.
The charge-free fields are calculated by the methods of successive images. Ionized fields at and above ground plane for DC, as well as AC/DC hybrid cases, are computed by implementing an algorithm for non-linear two-point initial value problems.
