HIGH & EXTRA HIGH VOLTAGE CABLE
XLPE-insulated cables with optimised conductor characteristics
From the High- and Extra High transmission grids, there are extremely high demands for the transmission capacity of cables. In order to comply with these requirements, conductor cross sections up to a maximum of 2500 sqmm were developed. A significant improvement in the current rating of XLPE-insulated power cables could be achieved by segmenting the conductor and implementing further additional design improvements. Based on these design improvements an increase in the transmission capacity of 15 percent could be secured.
