A brief description is given of the theory and history of EIDI (electroimpulse deicing) technology. These descriptions are followed by a summary of the experiments conducted by the authors to investigate the feasibility of deicing electric power lines using EIDI technology. In spite of the features of EIDI technology that make it attractive for power line deicing, the authors were unable to deice a conductor span of any significant length and thus concluded that EIDI technology, in its present form, is not suited for power-line-deicing applications
