    The construction of current extruded-dielectric, medium-voltage underground residential distribution (URD) cable is described, and requirements for semiconductive shields are examined. Conductor shields, insulation shields, semiconductive jackets, shields for high-voltage cables, and shields for rubber insulation are included. The composition of carbon black and polymer shields is discussed, and t... View full abstract»

    For pt.XIII see ibid., vol.8, no.4 (July/August 1992). The finer points of acoustic partial discharge (PD) detection systems and their common applications are treated. The PD source, propagation path of the waves, the acoustic sensor, and system noise are described. The design of acoustic PD instrumentation, the location of discharges, and the detection and evaluation of signals are discussed. App... View full abstract»
