About technical terms in electrical engineering

Hi everyone
I try to improve my English skills translating to English some technical terms related to Engineering. However I I want to know if my sentence makes sense because the terms are unfamiliar to me.Can someone say me which mistakes I made?.Thanks so much.

1a) Calculation of catenary Final EDS conditions for each span.

1b) Calculation of catenary in final conditions EDS for each span

2a) Calculation at the same time of insulator swing

2b) Calculation of swing angles of the insulator strings

3a)Hypothesis independent state change equation for each conductor

3b)Hypothesis independent of state change equation for each conductor

RE: About technical terms in electrical engineering

English sentences contain subjects and verbs. In the examples above, I see only the subjects; calculation and hypothesis. Perhaps you meant to use verbs such as calculate and hypothesize? Which terms are unfamiliar?

RE: About technical terms in electrical engineering


It is not familiar to me in the sense that my field is related to land surveying and not mechanical calculations in electrical engineering. For this reason if my sentence make sense for an electrical engineer so my translation is good but I`m not sure. ...And yes I can use some verbs and I can say : with this method we can show/determine: Calculation of catenary ( in ?)….
or we can show….Hypothesis independent (of ?) …...So if my sentences make sense for you I wonder if It change the meaning if I delete “in” in sentence 1b and “of”” in sentence 3b?.Thank you very much for your comments and good cooperation
