Abstract
This paper proposes a simple, fast and accurate simulation approach based on one-dimensional reduction and the application of the finite difference method (FDM) to determine the temperatures rise in substation connectors. The method discretizes the studied three-dimensional geometry in a finite number of one-dimensional elements or regions in which the energy rate balance is calculated. Although a one-dimensional reduction is applied, to ensure the accuracy of the proposed transient method, it t...
