INTRODUCTION

XLPE Cable Systems
Introduction
Interfaces you can trust

ABB manufactures underground and submarine power
cables up to the highest voltages available.
Furthermore, we produce associated joints, terminations
and other accessories for all types of cables. The products
are designed to work perfectly together. Thus, we know
what we connect.
Experience you can rely on

We have extensive experience of cable projects all over the
world, encompassing every aspect from planning to commissioning, including engineering, route surveys, cable-laying,
installation and final testing. Very few manufacturers can
point to such a long tradition in the high voltage field as ABB.
We delivered our first electrical cable in 1883 and introduced
triple-extruded XLPE cables around 1970. In the early 1970s
we started to supply cables for over 100 kV and our first 245
kV XLPE cable was put into service in 1978. ABB has since then
supplied more than 6,600 km of XLPE cables above 100 kV.
Experience you can rely on.
Research and development

ABB has always been a pioneer in the high voltage field
and we have many world’s first and world records among
our references. But there are no shortcuts to success.
Maintaining our position calls for innovative research and
development, backed up by the wealth of know-how we
have accumulated over the years. One of the driving forces
for our R&D is to meet the new and constantly increasing

requirements from the power industry and a deregulated
market. Today we aim to develop the solutions our customers will need tomorrow.
State-of-the-art manufacturing lines

Experience and state-of-the-art expertise go hand in hand
for us. We have been manufacturing cables for over 120
years and have since the beginning been one of the
leading producers. Our factories are among the most
modern in the world and our advanced quality system
leaves nothing to chance. Every cubic millimeter of the
cable has to be perfect. We design and produce cables in
accordance with internationally approved standards or/and
according to our customers’ specifications.
This guide presents XLPE cables and systems for underground applications mainly.

ABB 7 .XLPE CABLE SYSTEM CONFIGURATIONS XLPE cable system configurations Trefoil and flat formation The three cables in a 3-phase circuit can be placed in different formations. by reducing or eliminating the metallic sheath currents through different methods of bonding. but no current will flow. The usual bonding methods are described below: Both-ends bonding A system is both ends bonded if the arrangements are such that the cable sheaths provide path for circulating currents at normal conditions. a voltage will be induced between screens of adjacent phases of the cable circuit and between screen and earth. This induced voltage is proportional to the cable length and current. a voltage will be induced in between screen and earth. The maximum induced voltage will appear at the link boxes for cross-bonding. Cross-bonding A system is cross-bonded if the arrangements are such that the circuit provides electrically continuous sheath runs from earthed termination to earthed termination but with the sheaths so sectionalized and cross-connected in order to eliminate the sheath circulating currents. In such case. but in general the accepted screen voltage potential limits the length. These losses are smaller for cables in trefoil formation than in flat formation with separation. In such case. Typical formations include trefoil (triangular) and flat formations. The choice depends on several factors like screen bonding method. conductor area and available space for installation. it is possible to incresase the load current carrying capacity (ampacity) of the cable circuit. Single-point bonding A system is single point bonded if the arrangements are such that the cable sheaths provide no path for the flow of circulating currents or external fault currents. This will cause losses in the screen. Trefoil or flat formation Bonding of the metallic screens The electric power losses in a cable circuit are dependent on the currents flowing in the metallic sheaths of the cables. Therefore. but no significant current will flow. which reduce the cable current carrying capacity. It requires screen separation and additional link boxes. Single-point bonding can only be used for limited route lengths. This method permits a cable current-carrying capacity as high as with single-point bonding but longer route lengths than the latter.

The continuous current ratings are calculated according to IEC 60287 series of standards and with the following conditions: .CURRENT RATING FOR XLPE CABLE SYSTEMS Current rating for XLPE cable systems The XLPE cable should at least have a conductor cross section adequate to meet the system requirements for power transmission capacity.Laying depth L 1.One multi-core cable or one three-phase group of single-core cables . XLPE cables can be loaded continuously to a conductor temperature of 90°C. Continuous current ratings for three-core cables are given in Table 1 and for single-core cables in Tables 2-5. 8 ABB . The cost of energy losses can be reduced by using larger conductor. Load losses in XLPE cables are primarily due to the ohmic losses in the conductor and the metallic screen. ampères Table 1 Rated voltage up to 220 kV Cross section mm2 Aluminium conductor In ground 65 C o 90 C 65 C o Copper conductor In air o In ground 90 C o 65 C 90 C o o In air 65 C 90oC o 16 74 89 60 82 96 115 78 105 25 95 115 80 110 120 145 105 140 35 115 135 97 130 145 175 125 170 50 135 160 120 165 175 210 155 210 70 165 195 145 195 210 250 185 250 95 195 230 170 230 250 300 220 290 120 220 265 200 270 285 340 255 345 150 245 295 225 300 315 380 285 390 185 280 335 255 345 355 430 325 440 240 320 385 300 400 410 495 380 515 300 365 435 335 455 460 555 430 580 400 410 490 385 525 515 625 490 680 500 465 560 445 610 580 700 560 780 630 525 635 510 705 640 785 635 890 800 585 715 585 810 705 865 715 1000 1000 645 785 655 915 755 935 785 1100 Rating factors for single-core cables are given in Tables 6 to 14.0 Km/W Current rating for three-core cables.Ground thermal resistivity 1.0 m . Dielectric losses in XLPE cables are lower than for EPR and fluid-filled cables. The dielectric losses in the XLPE insulation system are present also at no load current and depend primarily on the magnitude of the operating voltage.

The interface surfaces between insulation and conductive screens are not exposed at any stage of the manufacturing. Longitudinal water sealing is achieved by using a water swelling material applied under the lead sheath. which gives excellent mechanical properties. Metallic screen Copper wire screen. The insulation thickness is determined by the design electrical stresses for AC or impulse. dry curing and super-clean XLPE materials guarantee high quality products. triple extrusion.

Special polyolefines with flame retardant properties but without chlorine or any other halogenes are optional for the outer sheath. directly after laying. Several serious fire accidents have focused attention on the fire behaviour of cables. after transportation. either in factory.

This testing is important to ensure the physical integrity of the cable from time to time. upon completion of the installation. as a propagator of flames and or as a source of intense aggressive smoke. once PVC is on fire. PE is the first choice for most applications. IEC 60502 recommends a thickness of t = 0. Cables with a standard PE outer sheath do not generate any corrosive HCl but are not flame retardant. in some cases cable installations have influenced the extent of a fire. Fire behavior This relates to cables in buildings and tunnels. This gas is highly corrosive and irritating to inhale. where D is the diameter under the sheath. A conductive outer layer obtained by simultaneous extrusion with the non-conductive outer sheath presents superior electrical and structural properties. or periodically thereafter.0 mm.

However. it generates hydrochloric acid fumes (HCl) acid.
