A huge capital investment goes for power cables in an electric power system. Reliability and life expectancy of serviceaged power cables can be assured by systematic field testing and condition assessment program. Very Low Frequency (VLF) ac Testing proved effective for field testing and condition assessment of shielded Power Cable System. Central Power Research Institute (CPRI), Bengaluru, a premier institute for Indian Power Sector has been conducting diagnostic testing on medium voltage power cable systems to assess the healthiness of the power cable systems and cable system components. In this paper application of VLF testing for withstand and other diagnostic tests and measurements are discussed. Few case studies based on the data obtained from the field testing on MV Power Cable System are presented.

Abstract


A huge capital investment goes for power cables in an electric power system. Reliability and life expectancy of serviceaged power cables can be assured by systematic field testing and condition assessment program. Very Low Frequency (VLF) ac Testing proved effective for field testing and condition assessment of shielded Power Cable System. Central Power Research Institute (CPRI), Bengaluru, a premier institute for Indian Power Sector has been conducting diagnostic testing on medium voltage power cable systems to assess the healthiness of the power cable systems and cable system components. In this paper application of VLF testing for withstand and other diagnostic tests and measurements are discussed. Few case studies based on the data obtained from the field testing on MV Power Cable System are presented.
