AC STRESS DISTRIBUTION IN THE INSULATION

SINGLE CORE SCREENED XLPE CABLE - 132 kV 300 mm 2

ELECTRICAL DATA
U Phase to Phase Nominal Voltage (kV) 132
U0 Phase to Earth nominal Voltage (kV) 76
Uip Impulse Voltage (kV) 650
Upf Short Duration Power Frequency Withstand Voltage (kV) 275

CABLE DIMENSIONS
d Nominal Diameter of Conductor (mm) 20.60
tcs Nominal Thickness of Conductor Screen (mm) 1.20
D Nominal Diameter over Insulation Screen (mm) 60.20
tis Thickess of Semi Conductor screen over insulation (mm) 1.20
X Thickness of Insulation 17.40

CALCULATION OF STRESS DISTRIBUTION

Ex = V/{[(d/2)+tcs+x)]*ln[(D-2*tis)/(d+2*tcs)]} kV/mm

Where,
Ex : Stress Distribution at point X of inslulation (kV)
V : Potential applied between Conductor and Metalic Sheath (kV)
x: Distance from conductor screen at point X of insulation (mm)

Stress at Conductor + Screen
