Since power cables are used extensively by most electric utilities and industrial, commercial and institutional power users, many people are interested in learning more about how cable systems are designed, and to what standards and how to properly size and specify power cable and then how to test and maintain aging power cable systems.
The Electricity Forum is offering a forum that will cover all of the critical aspects of power cables.
This course will cover the components that make up a medium voltage cable as well as the characteristics of each component in the cable. Several types of cable insulations are reviewed along with the benefits of each type. We will update delegates on the latest design innovations in power cable technology and the evolving standards surrounding the manufacture of power cable. Cable fault location and routine testing will be covered. You will learn about some of the latest methods in condition assessment testing, and cable rejuvenation and cable life extension.
Power cables come in all sorts of types, sizes and material construction components, depending on the cable application. Actually, there are various kinds of joint and termination ends and especially these accessories play a major influence on cable network reliability.
This course provides insight into how to accurately determine the remaining lifespan of your cable through Life Cycle Analysis techniques, with a minimal amount of time and resources. Special attention will be paid to the effectiveness of diagnostic procedures.
