Electric Submersible Power Cable
General Concept
Power is supplied to the electric motor by electric cable. As mentioned in the previous chapter that the downhole electric motor is a three phase, accordingly the power cable has three conductors one for each phase. The configuration of the electric cables is either flat or round. Each one of them has different sizes and each size has different types for different operating conditions.
Round Flat
As an option both Round and Flat include injection tube for injecting chemicals down hole.
Round and flat cables includes injection tube
Cable Construction
The cable construction is mainly consists of:
Three copper conductors
Injection tube (option) Conductors Insulation Barrier Injection tube Jacket Armor
