The reduction occurs because XLPE allows much higher transient short-circuit operating temperatures. Voltage regulation is often the limiting factor in the choice of either conductor or type of insulation. For a typical 35kv cable with conductors in the — kcmil range, XLPE jackets may permit a 25 percent reduction in neutral wire copper content.
Cable weight, pounds per ft Prysmian recommends that a recognized manufacturer supply the correct grip s on an individual application basis, utilizing the formula shown above. The reactances shown are for Hertz operation.
From the attached sketch one may calculate the resistance as following: Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. Reasons such as off-topic, duplicates, flames, illegal, vulgar, or students posting their homework.
General Calculations Excerpt from PRYSMIAN`S WIRE AND CABLE
Transition from conducting to nonconducting environment. An increase in contact resistance may occur after cable installation, during service exposed to moisture and heat. To limit radio interference. However, shielding should be considered for nonmetallic covered cables operating at a circuit voltage over where any of the following conditions exist: Special consideration should be given to cables when installed in magnetic ducts.
Open wire lines have a high reactance. XLPE jackets promise sustainability benefits including: Dry soil, such as p-54-482 the desert. The effective area of thin, helically applied overlapped tapes depends, also, upon the degree of electrical contact resistance of the overlaps.
The following table lists equations commonly used for determining various parameters of an electrical system where: This combination will ensure a permanent low resistance, which will maintain contact even if the solder melts. Red Flag This Post Please let us know here why this post is inappropriate. Frequent grounding of shields reduces the possibility of open sections on nonmetallic covered cable. Wires applied either helically, as a braid or serving; or longitudinally with corrugations.
Now to find out why Prysmian isn’t following their own guide An insulation shield has a -p45-482 of functions: Single conductors should not be installed in individual magnetic conduit because of the excessive reactance. The system short circuit capacity, the conductor cross-sectional area and the circuit breaker opening time should be such that these maximum allowable short circuit currents are not exceeded.
Various modifications are necessary for use under special conditions is covered in notes on the nomogram. All grounding connections should be made to the shield in such a way as to provide a permanent low resistance bond. If you’re a utility engineer or buyer interested in renewable energy initiatives, you should know about Southwire’s line of MV jackets using crosslinked polyethylene XLPE. It’s easy to join and it’s free. Also, they may be used when additional insulation strength over the percent level category is desirable.
I came up with 7.
The area of contact should be ample to prevent the current from heating the connection and melting the solder. Formula 3 may be used to calculate the effective cross-sectional area of the shield for new cable. Under these conditions the contact resistance may approach infinity, where Formula 2 could apply.
While resulting in slightly higher reactances than three cables in a non-magnetic duct, it is optimal relative to the alternative of a single cable in a magnetic duct. Register now while it’s still free! Transition from moist to dry earth. Posting Guidelines Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden.
Shield Materials Two distinct types of materials are employed in constructing cable shields: The material in contact with the shield or sheath shall limit the temperature of the shield or sheath.
The shield should operate at or near ground potential at all times. Do you have any insight on the rather large discrepancy between these resistivity assumptions? The following equation can be utilized to find the reactance of a given configuration by using the concept of geometric mean radius. The effective cross-sectional area of a shield or sheath needed to withstand a given short-circuit current for a given time.
