An improved mathematical model used to study coupling characteristic of the multi-span transmission lines is developed. Based on the solution method for single-span cable, an expression for the dynamic stiffness of two-span transmission lines with an arbitrary inclination angle is formulated. The continuity of displacements and forces at a suspension point is used to derive the dynamic stiffness. Interactions between insulator strings and adjacent spans are accommodated. Considering the infinite dynamic stiffness corresponds to the natural frequencies of the transmission lines, the finite element method(FEM) is employed to assess the validity of the dynamic stiffness. In the numerical investigation, attention is focused on the effect of the inclination angles, Irvine parameter, insulator string length and damping parameter. In addition, modal function corresponding to the natural frequencies are derived. Then, the results of comprehensive parametric studies are presented and discussed. Special attention is paid to the effect of Irvine parameter and damping parameter on the in-plane modal shapes. Finally, according to the theoretical model of two-span transmission lines, the generalized dynamic stiffness of transmission lines with arbitrary number of spans and inclination angles is derived. The method can be used as the basis of the vibration analysis on a wide variety of multi-span transmission lines.
