This paper discusses that the significant voltage drop under load condition is the big problem of distribution networks, because it limits the transfer capability of distribution lines. A utilization of the compact lines technology allows a significant increase in the transfer capability of distribution lines. Important developments for controlling over voltage and conductor resonances in recent decades gave the possibility to reduce the distances between phases. The modern distribution lines can be optimized with respect to their electric parameters in comparison with normal distribution lines, and by this increase the capacity in energy transmission.
