Overhead electrical transmission lines vibrate due to the action of a prevailing wind. These cable vibrations can be classified into two categories— high-frequency and low-frequency. The high-frequency vibrations, "aeolian" vibrations or "singing wires," is a low-amplitude phenomenon. It has been largely controlled with the use of various mechanical dampers [l, 2],
