# Solution: How much power a 230 kilovolt line rated at 150 amperes transmit over 100 km?

How much power, in megawatts can a 230 kilovolt line rated at 150 amperes transmit over 100 km?

#### Problem Statement: EE Board March 1998

The electric power which a transmission line can transmit is proportional to the product of its design voltage and current capacity, and inversely to the transmission distance. A 115-kilovolt line rated at 100 amperes can transmit 150 megawatts over 150 km. How much power, in megawatts can a 230 kilovolt line rated at 150 amperes transmit over 100 km?

It could transmit 675 megawatts over 100 km.
