Example Cable laying TAT
Implementation of Quality & Safety Plan for 19 divisions & EHV
Monitoring of maintenance of Equipments
Identification of worn out equipment
Cable failures dynamics
Cables loaded nearer to rated capacities,
ageing
joint
Overloaded cables
Inputs for cable mtc
1. GIS may play important role in identifying such cables and planning their replacement
/improvement schemes.
2. SCADA provides input for loadings of HT cables. In LT system, overloaded cables are
identified based on
Analysis of repeated fuse blown or repeated cable fault cases,
Equipment health monitoring
Combining information from Single line diagram, consumer tagging and consumer
Consumptions
