    The use of distributed temperature sensing systems for the temperature monitoring of buried and sub-sea power cables has been well proven in many applications over the last ten years. Extending the use of these systems to other critical assets will provide an opportunity to manage networks more effectively. Utilising assets in this way reduces the need for reinforcement, releases capital for other... View full abstract»

    As asset owners, Regional Electricity Companies in the UK have responsibilities for the lifetime care of their assets. New methods of minimising the lifetime costs of assets are constantly being sought. Since privatisation of the industry, new methods of collaboration on issues of common concern have been emerging, and this paper describes the background to, reasons for and outcome of one such ven...

    Considerable resources are used to collect failure data from service, however only limited use is generally made of these data. The goals of this study were: to identify if the data regularly collected by utilities can be used to estimate system reliability; to identify useful methods to analyse failure data typically collected by utilities; to recommend the format for data collection; and to iden...

    Eastern Electricity operates a large fluid-filled cable network. The system has been very reliable with very few electrical failures, but is expensive to maintain in comparison to systems of cables with solid insulation. This paper summarises the experience of the management of an ageing fluid-filled cable network in Eastern Electricity, during a five year period View full abstract»

    To detect and locate incipient failure in underground cables before electrical faults occur has potential benefits in terms of customer satisfaction, and quality of supply statistics particularly for “worst served customers”. Techniques are being developed and implemented in London to identify/locate incipient faults in cable systems. Much of the recent work has centred on the developm... View full abstract»

  • Developments in cable diagnostics

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):6/1 - 612

    A number of power cable diagnostic techniques are discussed. The quality and detail of the information generated by these techniques varies widely, as does the complexity of measurements and equipment required. Study of cable history and examination of failures and cable samples provides a useful insight into the network with little additional work. DC test methods offer the greatest ease of use d...

    OVERLORDTM is an early warning alarm system designed using the latest fibre optic technology, to warn electric utilities and power network providers of any major disturbance to any buried services. The author describes this complete system, which has been carefully engineered with the necessary software to operate warning alarms. The system is commissioned by Boddingtons and can be inst...
