Mechanical strength and electrical conductivity are among the most important properties of conducting metallic materials used in electrical engineering. However, high electrical conductivity and high strength are usually mutually exclusive due to physical nature of these properties. The approach of intelligent nanostructural design in the Al-Mg-Si alloys has enabled to increase the material strength with no degradation of its electrical conductivity, or even its simultaneous improvement. Moreover, nanostructuring of the Al-Mg-Si alloys can further increase their in-use properties. This work aims to overview the relationship between the microstructure and properties, which are important for application of the nanostructured Al-Mg-Si wires for overhead power lines, such as mechanical strength, ductility, electrical conductivity and fatigue resistance.
