    The use of renewable energy is a key topic in the global energy market. Wind parks are being built all over the world, especially offshore, and large hydroelectric power stations are producing enormous amounts of electrical energy. Yet, the regions abounding in renewable energy frequently do not coincide with the consumption sites of energy. Therefore, energy has to be transported over long distan... View full abstract»

    Most power cable faults begin as defects in the cable accessories: terminations, joints, and junctions. Poor workmanship is a common cause of the accessory faults [1], [2]. A contributing problem is that power cable accessories are sometimes conveniently assembled manually on site by subcontractors rather than by the cable or accessory manufacturers, thereby increasing the risk on compromising qua...

    Nowadays, when compared with overhead lines, power cables are becoming increasingly attractive for the delivery of electrical power. Their reduced environmental impact complies with the public concern on the compatibility of electrical infrastructures in residential areas. The lower fault rate of high voltage DC (HVDC) cables matches the need of transmission and distribution system operators for h... View full abstract»

    The physical properties of polyester film, such as thermal stability, combined with its mechanical properties, such as tensile break strength, and its electrical strength make it the preferred material for a wide variety of electrical insulation applications. Therefore, polyesters are widely used as insulating material for electric power system equipment such as cables, motors, transformers, and c... View full abstract»

    Due to the growing use of high-voltage direct current (HVDC) for power transmission, it is of interest whether the diagnostic tools introduced in the past for insulation condition assessment of high-voltage alternating current (HVAC) apparatus are also applicable for quality assurance tests of HVDC equipment. This refers in particular to the measurement of partial discharges (PD) in compliance wit... View full abstract»
