Abstract: Electrical power generated and transmitted at a long distance away from the power stations is usually affected by inherent transmission line losses. The Ohmic and Corona losses which are predominantly common in power transmission lines are considered in this paper. These two losses are mathematically modeled with and without embedded bundled conductors. The resultant model which is a non-linear multivariable unconstrained optimized equation is minimized using the Hessian matrix determinant method for stability test purposes. The results obtained show that corona losses are minimized with embedded bundled conductors at a very low current value with large spacing distance between the bundled conductors. The decrease in the corona loss which is a consequence of spacing adjustment of the 2, 3, and 4 strands of bundled conductors was plotted using MATLAB 7.14. The plots obtained are in conformity with the inverse relation between corona loss and conductor spacing.
