After Laying Tests on AC and DC Cable Systems with New Technologies

Over the past years, the development in equipment available for on-site commissioning and maintenance testing of HV & EHV cable systems has progressed, such that test sets are now available for testing of long lengths of HV cable using modernized version of resonant test sets, Very Low Frequency (VLF) test sets or Damped AC (DAC) test sets. As a result, CIGRE formed working group B1.38 to investigate the application of HV & EHV cable systems testing using new technologies. The findings and associated recommendations have been outlined in Technical Brochure 841.
