This Live Script shows how to simulate the sag of power line conductors. It allows user to explore the effects of different parameters, such as temperature, conductor type, tension span, etc., on the calculation of points of the catenary. The results are visualized in a plot. Submitted as part of the MATLAB Online Live Editor Challenge 2018.
