Implementation of cable system aging management is progressing rapidly in the nuclear industry. This paper describes the scope of the aging management system, the tactics, assessments, and tests being applied to in-plant and underground cable systems. Progress to date on medium-voltage cable testing and assessments of low-voltage power and instrument and control cable is discussed as are failure mechanisms and test methodology for the types of medium voltage cable used in nuclear plants.
