We study the effective conductivity σe for a random wire problem on the d-dimensional cubic lattice 𝒵d, d≥2 in the case when random conductivities on bonds are independent identically distributed random variables. We give exact expressions for the expansion of the effective conductivity in terms of the moments of the disorder parameter up to the 5th order. In the 2D case using the duality symmetry we also derive the 6th order expansion. We compare our results with the Bruggeman approximation and show that in the 2D case it coincides with the exact solution up to the terms of 4th order but deviates from it for the higher order terms.
