    Polymer technology has shown good performance and has certain advantages over ceramic technology in insulators. However, it often comes with a potentially weak point, i.e., the interface between two solid insulators. In The Netherlands, a cascade of 150 kV termination breakdowns occurred several years ago. The present paper gives the results of the research and precautions that were undertaken aft... View full abstract»

    The ARTEMIS BRITE-EURAM program has been presented in this paper. Its main objective is to develop a diagnostic methodology to assess i) the susceptibility of polymeric cable insulation to electrical ageing; and ii) the state of the insulation at any chosen time in order to evaluate the remaining life-time of operating power cables. The ARTEMIS partners include cable manufacturers, material suppli... View full abstract»

    Paper-insulated lead cable (PILC) has had an impressive history of service. Many of the cables installed earlier in this century are still performing well. Because of this and because of tradition, PILC is still being manufactured and sold today. This article outlines a history of the development and the improvements in the technology of manufacturing lead/paper cables as well as the history of th... View full abstract»
