Transition from moist to dry earth. The resultant intensity of discharge may be sufficient to cause burning of the insulation or jacket. Importance of Shielding Where there is no metallic covering or shield over the insulation, the electric field will be partly p-445-482 the insulation and partly in whatever lies between the insulation and ground. Helically applied tape not overlapped. Stress cones should be made at all shield terminations.
The reduction occurs because XLPE allows much higher transient short-circuit operating temperatures. The cable vendor, Prysmian, provided all the relevant cable data, including a shield resistance of Thank you for helping keep Eng-Tips Forums free from inappropriate posts.
In this connection it should be remembered that the high voltage circuit should -p45-482 carried as far as possible so that the secondary runs, where most of the voltage drop occurs, will be small. Auxiliary nonmetallic conducting shields may adhere to the insulation, so that the use of a grit aluminum oxide cloth or similar material may be required to assure removal of the conducting material from the insulation surface See pages 28 – 30 for generalized discussion of cable preparation for splicing and terminating.
Three conductors in magnetic conduit will have a somewhat higher reactance than cables in non-magnetic conduit. I came up with 7.
XLPE MV Jackets Bring Sustainable Benefits
Their use is recommended also for resonant grounded systems. The formula also seems to imply that the shield resistance is independent of the diameter of the shield, which seems wrong to me.
Open wire lines have a high reactance. From the attached sketch one may calculate the resistance as following: Shield losses due to circulating currents go down by approximately 2 percent, which brings energy costs down. To obtain the voltage drop line-to-line, multiply the voltage drop by 3. Definite rules cannot be established on a practical basis for all cases.
If magnetic ducts must be used, it is recommended that all three cables be placed in a single duct. Click Here to join Eng-Tips and talk with other members!
XLPE’s higher abrasion-resistance can also reduce potential cable damage during installation.
Also, they may be used when additional insulation strength over the percent level category is desirable. An increase in contact resistance may occur after cable installation, during service exposed to moisture and heat. For additional security, a mechanical device, such as a clamp, may be used to fasten the ends of the connection together. This decreases the reactance to fault currents and increases human safety factor. Using the same cable data provided by Prysmian, and a resistivity of 2.
The effective cross-sectional area of a shield or sheath needed to withstand a given short-circuit current for a given time.
General Calculations Excerpt from PRYSMIAN`S WIRE AND CABLE
Reasons such as off-topic, duplicates, flames, illegal, vulgar, or students posting their homework. Use of Insulation Shielding The use of shielding involves consideration of installation and operating conditions.
This can simplify application engineering. Short-Circuit Currents for Insulated Cable Conductors Steady increases in kVA capacity of power distribution systems have resulted in possible short circuit currents of such magnitude that the resulting high conductor temperature may seriously damage the conductor insulation.
Where regulation is an important consideration several factors should be kept in mind in order to obtain the best operating conditions. Since the result is in terms of area, it seems you need the resistivity of the tape shield to derive the resistance. It is p-45-48 by means of strand and insulation shields. L-45-482 Flag This Post Please icae us know here why this post is inappropriate. So, A is not an actual area-in order to calculate the tape resistance.
Insulated Cable Engineers Assoc., Publication No. PRevised – Google Books
Installing a single cable in a magnetic duct results in HIGH reactance and a de-rated ampacity. The EPRI formula you provided is in the same form as the Kersting formula, the difference being attributable to the resistivity assumption. To obtain symmetrical radial distribution of voltage stress within the dielectric, thereby minimizing the possibility of surface discharges by precluding excessive tangential and longitudinal stresses.
Consult the cable manufacturer for insulation thicknesses. Download Now Defense manufacturing is all about project manufacturing and project accounting.
To reduce the hazard of shock. Every ixea I found used a different formula which does take the shield diameter into account. If you’re a utility engineer or buyer interested in renewable energy initiatives, you should know about Southwire’s line of MV jackets using crosslinked polyethylene XLPE.
Thank you 7anoter4 for your detailed response.

This combination will ensure a permanent low resistance, which will maintain contact even if the solder melts. To satisfy my own curiosity, I checked a few text books to see if I could corroborate this. This may be improved by using parallel circuits but is much further reduced by using insulated cable. The system short circuit capacity, the conductor cross-sectional area and the circuit breaker opening time should be such that these maximum allowable short circuit currents are not exceeded.
Nonmetallic shields – consist of either a conducting tape or a layer of conducting compound.
Dry soil, such as in the desert. For three-phase circuits, use voltage to neutral and resistance and reactance of each conductor to neutral.
