In these instructions you may find two types of alert messages: WARNING Safety message. Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in death or serious injury. CAUTION Indicates a procedure that has to be followed or a critical part in the process of cable termination installation which calls for extreme caution. In some segments of the installation process mistakes could cause significant extra work or permanent damage to the cable termination.

GWI 36D-47 Page 2 of 20 These Installation instructions are general and do not cover all contingencies. CAUTION The equipment covered by this document is intended to be installed, operated and maintained by qualified persons who are trained in the installation, operation and maintenance of electric power transmission equipment along with the associated hazards. It is assumed the jointing crew is experienced and has been trained in installation of these or similar terminations. Carelessness, improper handling of materials, tools or equipment or performing unauthorized procedures during installation would seriously affect the operational characteristics of the termination. The cable and termination components have to be protected from dust, contamination and moisture. A light structure built around the cable end will provide this protection. If required a space heater or dehumidifier needs to be used to provide comfortable work conditions and prevent moisture condensation on the cable from breath in cold weather and sweat in warm weather. Cleanliness is essential. Make sure that the tools, components, work area and jointers hands and clothing are kept as clean as possible during installation. Storage: Store terminations in shipping crates, indoors.

GWI 36D-47 Page 3 of 20 2. PREPARATORY STEPS

Check the markings on the shipping crate. Verify that the termination type and the stress cone size are proper for the cable. Inspect the crate for any damage during transportation. Check the contents against bill of material attached to these installation instructions . Inspect the parts for any damage during transportation. Have all required tools at hand. See attached list of typical splicing tools and materials. Make sure the crimp dies are proper for the connector. WARNING Make sure the cables are de-energized, grounded and properly phased. Not doing so may result in injury or death to personnel. Verify support structure is level, has proper bolt hole pattern for installation of mounting plate (for outdoor terminations) or interface plate (for GIS and oil immersed terminations), and has minimum opening to fit entrance housing as shown on G&W Termination assembly drawing (for Outdoor terminations). Ensure there are provisions to secure the cable to the support structure below the termination mounting surface. FOR GIS AND OIL IMMERSED TERMINATION: -Check proper location of cable(s) and interface by temporarily assembling interface plate or SF6 enclosure in the final installed position and making adjustments prior to installation of termination. -Provided oil needs to be heated to 60C prior to filling the termination. FOR CABLES WITH XLPE INSULATION: Straighten cable end according to cable manufacturer's recommendations. For this operation cable is cut approximately 200 mm (8") longer than shown in Section 3. General practice is to heat the cable using temperature controlled heating tapes or blanket, with sufficient cushion between the tapes and cable, at approximately 80C for four to six hours. Tapes or blankets are removed after heating and cable is positioned between two straight angle irons (or boards) and loosely installed, for cooling and straightening. CAUTION Exercise extreme caution if heaters with thermostats are used since thermostat malfunction can damage cable ends. Self temperature controlled blankets are available. Typically cables with screen wires or cables with corrugated metallic sheaths are annealed after removal of the jacket and sheath. The cables with lead sheath and/or metallic tapes can be annealed before removal of the metallic sheath or in case of a thin jacket before removal of the jacket. It is upon supervising engineer to decide how and when to start annealing the cable.

GWI 36D-47 Page 4 of 20 CAUTION Make sure that no dents are made into the cable insulation during the process. Such a damage to cable insulation can cause cable failure.

Use care to prevent conductor from cocking during pressing operation. File off any sharp edges and burrs from connector.

GWI 36D-47 Page 9 of 20 6. CABLE INSULATION PREPARATION (XLPE insulation)

1. Straighten the cable and mark cable insulation screen at the distance M from the top of the connector as shown in Figure 6.1. For 138 kV outdoor terminations "M"= 1457 3 mm (57-3/8" 1/8"). 2. Remove the semi-con insulation screen from the pencil area at the connector to this point. A special stripping tool or glass can be used. If stripping tool is used adjust the depth of the cutting blade so approximately 75% of cable insulation is exposed on the circumference of the cable. Remove all remaining insulation semi-con screen with glass NOT with sand paper. Exercise caution. Avoid nicks or gouges on the cable insulation surface. Follow cable manufacturers recommended procedure for removing strippable semi-con insulation screen. 3. Pencil the screen approximately 20 mm (3/4) using glass. CAUTION The transition between cable insulation and insulation screen must be smooth. Do not cut into insulation. Such a damage to cable insulation can cause cable failure.

Dimension "M" 4 mm (5/32") MAX

Smooth transition between cable insulation and cable extruded semi-con screen

Pencil cable semi-con approx. 20 mm (3/4")

Figure 6.1: Cable Insulation Screen Removal

4. Before start of sanding operation apply 3 half lapped layers of PVC tape on the transition between cable insulation and semi-con screen covering the penciled area of semi-con screen. This will avoid imbedding conductive particles from the screen into cable insulation during sanding. 5. Use No. 80 grit sand paper to smoothen the cable insulation. Continue insulation sanding with No. 150 grit paper. Be sure that all nicks, gouges and scratches are removed from cable insulation. Polish the cable insulation using No. 240 grit paper. For 230 kV cable terminations, use No. 320 grit paper for final polishing. A higher polish is achieved at the finish by reversing the sanding cloth and polishing the insulation.

GWI 36D-47 Page 10 of 20 CAUTION Do not smudge cable semi-con onto the cable insulation. Make sure there is no trace of cable semi-con on exposed cable insulation. That can cause cable failure. 6. Remove PVC tape from the cable screen and temporarily apply two layers of PVC tape over 100 mm (4) long section of the insulation at the edge of the semi con screen. Carefully sand the penciled area only with 240 grit sand paper. Remove temporarily applied PVC tape. It is imperative that the transition between semi-con insulation screen and insulation be smooth and free of any scratches and foreign material. CAUTION Make sure that sand paper is applied on the cable semi-con screen only on the penciled area (approx. 20 mm (3/4)). Do not sand cable semi-con screen further down that point. This can cause cable failure. The cable should be wiped periodically with new, dry, lint free cloth dampened with solvent to remove any foreign matter imbedded in the insulation. Wipe the cable thoroughly clean. Wiping should always be done towards the cable semi-conductive insulation screen to prevent wiping semicon particles onto the insulation. Do not use a cleaning cloth twice; always discards cloths after first pass. If solvent with long evaporation time is used, wipe the cable dry with a clean, lint-free, dry cloth immediately after cleaning. 7. Measure cable insulation outer diameter. CAUTION Verify that insulation outer diameter falls into the range indicated on the label on the stress cone shipping package. Do not use the stress cone if the insulation diameter is out of the range. 8. Use the heat gun on the sanded cable insulation in order to get smoother surface. Heat will melt protrusions and smooth the dents in the cable insulation. The hot air temperature should be approximately 600C. The heat gun nozzle should be approximately 2 (50 mm) from the insulation surface. Apply the heat in slow circular movements until the cable insulation starts to be shiny. It takes 5 to 10 minutes to treat exposed cable insulation with heat. 9. After the insulation has cooled down, wrap the cable end with clean plastic wrap to protect the cable from contaminants.

Make sure the cable is properly secured by pushing down on cable and checking for any movement. This will assure cable will not move during stress cone installation. 4. Remove plastic wrap from the cable, measure the distance Y from the connector top and mark "O" Ring Entrance housing the cable at this point with marking tape. For 138 Heat shrink kV outdoor terminations "Y"=1592 3 mm (62tubing 11/16'' 1/8"). Figure 7.2: Dimensions for stress cone installation If rubber centering ring IS provided (for cables where the difference between the base plate inner diam. and cable semi-con outer diam. is greater or equal to 13 mm (1/2)): -Apply provided AP paste from glass jar liberally over the cable insulation and to the inside surface of centering ring. DO NOT apply AP paste over cable semi-con screen. -Slip centering ring over the cable and position bottom surface of the centering ring even with the marking tape at dimension Y. -Wipe the cable semi-con above the centering ring with clean dry cloth. Figure 7.3: Installation of the rubber centering ring If rubber centering ring IS NOT provided (for cables where the difference between the base plate inner diam. and cable semicon outer diam. is less than 13 mm (1/2)): -Make a PVC tape built-up even with a marking tape at dimension Y. The PVC tape built-up should be approximately 2 wide. For 115 kV - 161 kV terminations the PVC tape build-up diameter should be 98 mm (3-7/8"). 5. Measure the distance Z from the connector top and mark the cable at this point with three (3) turns of provided PVC tape. For 138 kV outdoor terminations "Z"=1519 2 mm (59-13/16'' 1/16"). 6. Remove the base plate from the termination in the crate. Discard O ring. Save hardware for later use. Cover insulator opening with plastic or cloth to protect the inside surface of the insulator from contamination.

GWI 36D-47 Page 13 of 20 7. Slip the base plate over the cable and attach to the mounting plate with provided bolts. For 69 kV 161 kV terminations M12 bolts are used Torque the bolts to 35 Nm (25 ft-lb). For 230 kV terminations M16 bolts are used. Torque these bolts to 40 Nm (30 ft-lb). 8. Check that the top surface of the base plate collar is even with the top surface of the PVC tape at mark Z. If required adjust the cable.

Figure 7.4: Distance Z

CAUTION Be sure that Z dimension is as specified. This dimension not being correct can cause cable failure. 9. Cover the space between the cable and base plate collar with cloths to stop the grease leaking down the cable. 10. Place the entrance housing O ring into the housing groove and attach the housing to the base plate with provided M8 bolts. Torque to 15 Nm (10 ft-lb). 11. Mark the cable even with the bottom surface of the housing using marking tape. This mark will be used to check if cable moved during installation of the stress cone. 12. Fold back the stress cone flap. 13. Make sure there is no contamination on the inside surface of the stress cone. Apply provided AP paste liberally to the inside surface of the stress cone. Make sure there are no dry spots. Dry spots will make installation of the stress cone more difficult. 14. Temporarily apply PVC tape over connector Figure 7.5: Preparing the stress cone for the installation threads to protect the inside of the stress cone during installation on the cable. 15. Thoroughly clean cable insulation. Apply provided AP paste to exposed cable insulation. Make sure there are no dry spots on the cable insulation. DO NOT apply the grease over semi conductive insulation screen. STRESS CONE SLIPPING 16. Slip the stress cone over the cable until it sits flat on the base plate collar. There are three possible ways of installing the stress cone. As a part of the tools provided by G & W there is a plastic slider like one shown in Figure 7.6. It is used in first two options to slide the stress cone down the cable. The

Fingers

Figure 7.6: Slider

GWI 36D-47 Page 14 of 20 slider is split vertically so it can be opened and positioned or removed from the cable at any point. When using a slider, do the following steps: - Apply the AP paste to the both inside and outside surfaces of the slider. - Position the slider on the cable with sliders fingers facing towards the connector as shown in Figure 7.7. - Slip the stress cone over the connector and onto the sliders fingers approximately 1. Be sure that the top section of sliders fingers is inside the stress cone bore. First option is to wrap the stress cone around with clean cloths and then to pull Figure 7.7: Using the slider the stress cone down the cable. When the stress cone bottom is close to marked position Z (approximately 1 to 2), pull up the stress cone just to release the slider and remove the slider from the cable by unfolding it. Then push the stress cone further down to the marked position. CAUTION DO NOT push the stress cone below the marked position. Wrong position of the stress cone can cause cable failure. Minimum (2) people are required for this job. The cable should be supported and secured to the mounting structure to prevent its longitudinal movement during installation. Second, easier alternative is to use optional installation ring with handles and manually slip the stress cone to the required position on the cable as shown in Figure 7.8. When the stress cone bottom is close to marked position Z (approximately 1 to 2), pull up the stress cone just to release the slider and remove the slider from the cable by unfolding it. Then push the stress cone further down to the marked Installation ring position. CAUTION DO NOT push the stress cone below the marked position. Wrong position of the stress cone can cause cable failure. The installation ring with handles has to be purchased separately. Again, minimum (2) people are required for this job. The cable should be supported and secured to the mounting structure to prevent its longitudinal movement during installation.
Removing the slider

Figure 7.8: Installation of the stress cone using the installation ring

Third alternative is to use optional stress cone installation fixture. It consists of a hand winch, wire rope with a hook, plastic tube and installation ring. This assembly is to be

GWI 36D-47 Page 15 of 20 attached to the connector with installation ring positioned on the stress cone as shown below. Apply grease over conical surfaces of the stress cone and installation ring. Using the hand winch and pressing the installation ring slip the stress cone down to the required position on the cable. See Figures 7.9 and 7.10. CAUTION DO NOT push the stress cone below the marked position. Wrong position of the stress cone can cause cable failure. From time to time back off winch and reposition installation ring. This will prevent the ring from jamming onto the stress cone. Advantage of this option is that the cable does not have to be supported in its final position.

17. Observe the marking tape over the entrance housing and verify that the cable didnt move during stress cone installation.

GWI 36D-47 Page 16 of 20 CAUTION If the cable moved more than 3 mm (1/8) pull the cable up and further slip the stress cone to required position. Wrong position of the stress cone can cause cable failure. 18. Clean cuffed flap of the stress cone and base plate collar with dry, clean, lint free cloth. Unfold the stress cone flap and secure with provided tie(s) to the base plate collar. Tie heads should be approximately 90 apart. 19. Wipe the cable insulation and the stress cone with clean dry, lint free cloth and cover with plastic wrap. NOTE The stress cone and termination can also be Figure 7.11: Final installation steps of the stress cone installed with the cable in horizontal position. After installation is completed, the cable is lifted and termination is placed on the mounting plate. During this operation it IS NOT allowed to rotate the base plate relative to the cable more than 6mm (1/4). More markings and up-front planning is required in order that holes on the base plate are lined-up with holes in the mounting plate once termination is lifted.
