Major problems faced by the Underground & Overhead transmission lines such as Damage to insulator, Conductor Corrosion, Vibration Damage, Arcing damage of conductor, Atmospheric lightning, ionization, Corona, Detection of fault location, Tree branches getting in contact with the power lines, birds in contact with the power lines affects the distribution of electricity. Including all the above mentioned problems, there are some instances happened due to the breakage of the power conductor and it falling on the surface of the earth or on the person in technical terms called as Step Potential & Touch Potential. This severe problem can be minimized if we replace the underground & overhead cable transmission system with the salt water. If we compare the conducting materials like copper, steel & aluminium with salt water the weight of the salt water is much less though there is much amount of difference in electrical conductivity but with much less resistivity. Sea water covers the major part of the earth surface and is also a good conductor of electricity. And it is practically proven that the transfer of high voltage AC current through salt water is possible. We proposed an alternate power transfer system which replaces Aluminium and Copper conductors in transmission with the salt water and transfer of electrical power through salt water. We are stepping up the generated (11KV) power to higher voltage levels (220 KV, 440 KV etc.) and then transferring the generated electric power through salt water filled in pipes to different distribution stations and sub-stations.

Keywords : Salt Water, Transmission Lines, Step Potential, Pipes, Underground and Overhead Transmission.
