Abstract: High voltage energy transmissions to minimize the energy losses are made. The connection of high voltage networks, control and supply are made of the most important places where substations. Using this equipment in the field that allows you to move along with the increase of voltage and high currents, some problems arise. This problem is especially of the currents and the temperature distribution of the materials through the distribution of the material leads to energy losses and hence unavailable about the lack of proper efficient. They also continue to threaten the security of the system. Substations expansion connectors are planned to be developed within the scope of this study aims to reduce energy losses and vulnerabilities as much as possible. In this study, criteria for determining the optimal expansion connector dimensions in accordance with the relevant regulations have been developed and tested for energy sustainability and production ease. As a result, the required connector dimensions and manufacturing conditions have been improved to make the current and temperature distribution uniform.
