    This article analyzes the technical specification trends for the design, installation, and use of 15 to 35 kV underground, insulated power cables by 60 of the largest investor-owned utilities. A distinctive 10-year trend has been established in insulation material preferences, and interesting new data are provided on the cable replacement and rejuvenation practices of these utilities. The results ... View full abstract»

    Pulse arrested spark discharge (PASD) is an effective means to detect and locate a variety of insulation defects in complex wiring geometries such as breached insulation, chafing, and physically small insulation cracks. It is highly immune to line impedance variations, an important property in aircraft wiring systems, and has been shown to be nondestructive to electrical insulation materials. Beca...

    Dissolved gas analysis (DGA) is widely used to detect incipient faults in oil-filled electrical equipment. There is always some degree of inaccuracy in laboratory dissolved-gas measurements, especially at low gas concentrations, which affects gas ratios and other diagnostic calculations. This paper examines the measurement inaccuracy problem in detail using recent CIGRE data. It shows how proper a... View full abstract»

  • Failure analyses of nonceramic insulators: part II - the brittle fracture model and failure prevention

    In this work, an improved version of a brittle fracture model, based on the formation of nitric acid in service through corona discharges, ozone, and moisture, is presented and is used to explain several different modes of brittle fracture. Similar to Part I, we refer throughout this article to the insulators as nonceramic insulators (NCIs). To prevent brittle fracture in-service, its causes must ... View full abstract»
