Sorry, I have another (possibly stupid) transmission line question...
I noticed that the three lines on one side of the tower have
insulators with smaller diameter than those on the other side:
Although the length of the insulators is the same, my guess is that
one side (the one with smaller insulators) is at lower voltage than
the other side. One reason I could think of why the insulators for
the (possibly) different voltages are the same length is the geometry
of the tower - insulators form a "V" shape. Is this the case?
