Due to the increasing energy request the ultra high voltage power systems come more to the fore. In this paper the power systems of 1,000kV are especially taken into account. New simulation technologies are required to be able to understand the behavior of 1,000kV power systems and to guide the development of 1,000kV equipment. The paper explains two related subjects: a simulation method for evaluating the unbalanced voltage and current conditions that occur in non-transposed transmission lines, and a modeling method that can analyze the surge behavior of low attenuation 1,000kV lines.
