The scope of the project covers the design principles that would allows 400kV circuits with two cables per phase to match the ratings of a standard 400kV OHL. This work is key to reducing the cost of undergrounding transmission lines, and has never been completed before. For this reason, the work is innovative.

The objective of this project is to determine the design principles that would allows 400kV circuits with two cables per phase to match the ratings of a standard 400kV OHL.

The project will be successful if National Grid have an increased learning in the area of uprating underground transmission routes.
