A threephase overhead transmission line has its conductors horizontally spaced with spacing between adjacent conductors to ‘d’. If now the conductors of the line are rearranged to form an equilateral triangle of sides equal to d then
Since GMR and r same in both cases L/ph proposal to Ln (G.M.D) and C/ph proposal to 1/Ln (GMD)
∴ Capacitance will increase and inductance will decrease

An electric train taking of constant current of 800A moves on a section of line between two substations 10 km apart maintained at 600 and 640 V respectively the track resistance is 0.05 Ω/km both go and return. The point of minimum potential along the track is at a distance from 640 V substation is – (in km)
Potential of P, V_{p} = 600 – I_{1} (0.05)x
= 640 – (800 – I_{1}) (0.05) (10 – x)
⇒ (800 – I_{1}) (0.05) (10 – x) = 40 + I_{1} (0.05) x
⇒ (800 – I_{1}) (10 – x) = 800 + I_{1} x
⇒ 800 + I_{1} x – 10I_{1} – 800x = 800 + I_{1} x
⇒ 100I_{1} + 800x = 7200
⇒ I_{1} = 720 – 80 x
Now, V_{p} = 600 – (720 – 80x) 0.05 x
= 600 – 360x + 4x^{2}
For V_{p} to be minimum
⇒ 36 + 8x = 0
⇒ x = 4.5 km
Distance from 640V substation is = 10 – x = 5.5 km
