    For pt.I see ibid., vol.4, no.5, p.9-16 (1988). Cables designed for particular applications and improved performance are described. The products discussed are: (1) water-impervious cable; (2) composite XLPE/optical fiber cable; (3) 66-kV submarine cable; (4) commercial long-distance 275-kV line; and (5) 500-kV short-distance line. The discussion is confined to the Japanese cable industry.<> View full abstract»

    A description is given of the high-current arc test, which has been under study at the NEMA/UC Insulation Laboratory for several years. In a previous paper a number of difficulties in performing the test by Middendorf (see IEEE Trans. Electr. Insul., vol.EI-17, no.5, p.429-33, 1982). One was the difficulty in seeing the candle-like flame of the burning insulation immediately after the white-hot ar... View full abstract»

    The need for cost-effective electrical insulation with greater physical strength but retaining the principal advantages of inorganic materials is discussed. A nonwoven hybrid inorganic paper product line that meets these requirements is presented. It utilizes a unique blend of inorganic and organic raw materials and involves the use of advanced concepts of material manufacturing. Shrinkage charact... View full abstract»

    The basics of radiation interaction with the chemical structure of some common polymers are presented. Polymer chain crosslinking and scission, the two principal effects, are described, and stabilization of polymers to radiation is discussed. Effects of dose-rate temperature during radiation on service endurance are considered.<> View full abstract»
