Electrical transmission line can be approached by the second order system with the model of capacitive, inductive, and resistive elements. In the system, the capacitive element is represented by the capacitance value between phases and phase to ground. In the other side, inductance of reactor and phase conductor represent the inductance element, whereas resistance of the phase conductor represents the resistance value of the system. As a second order system, the electrical transmission line is potentially experiencing the resonance phenomena if the natural frequency reaches the 50 Hz operation frequency. This paper explains the study of resonance phenomena in Extra High Voltage (EHV) 500 kV transmission line between two 500 kV Substation in West Java Region by the modeling and simulation. The results show that the transmission line is very vulnerable to the resonance phenomenon which is indicated by the existence of voltage up to 800 kV when this transmission line is not yet energized and causing one of the line arrester broken. The results also show that under the resonance phenomena, single pole auto reclose process is potentially failed. This study is expected to increase the concern for the resonance phenomena in the transmission lines.
