Electrical energy is transmitted through the electrical network from power generating stations to the consumers. For this purpose, the overhead transmission line is used through which bulk power can be transferred. The conventional electrical network transmits the energy with power loss. The reason for the power loss is due to corona discharge, which affects the performance of the transmission line. Due to the above reason this paper analyzed the corona loss with modeling of AC transmission line by using MATLAB software and also tested different factors which affect the corona in different weather (fair and stormy) conditions by using Peek's formula.
