Maintenance of HV cable systems

Date: November 30

Time: 6:00 AM – 7:30 AM CST

This webinar aims to give an introduction to the Technical Brochure of Maintenance of HV cable systems.

Maintenance of high voltage (HV) cable systems, and accessories, is an important practice to ensure the availability of a cable system during service. Generally, cable systems have an expected lifetime of several decades depending on various factors such as age, insulation type, voltage, and operating history. To ensure the cable system is utilized in a safe and expected manner, maintenance of the system is required. This can be achieved through inspection, testing, diagnostics, and/or monitoring of the cable system.

The TB 825 is an update of the TB 279 which includes more updated technologies and practices for Maintenance.

It covers all kinds of cable types, both submarine and land cables.
