Long-Life XLPE Insulated Power Cable
MetadataShow full item record
Crosslinked polyethylene (XLPE) has become the globally preferred insulation for power cables, both for distribution and transmission system applications. This insulation system provides cost efficiency in operation and procurement, as well as lower environmental and maintenance requirements when compared to older impregnated paper systems.The purpose of this paper is to outline some of the developments that have led to this position. Understanding these developments will assist utilities to continue sourcing,and installing, the reliable underground assets that they require for the future.
