Power Cable Testing

Author: Velimir Lackovic

This course covers power cable testing procedures including visual inspection, cable failures and their analysis, insulation and conductor defects, field testing of medium voltage cables and different cable testing methods. It covers issues related to different failure types such as mechanical failures, overheating, chemical actions etc. and ways to mitigate them and to put cables back into the service.

Upon successful completion engineers will be able to address various cable testing terms and procedures, to understand effects of such failures and how to organize mitigation measures in a timely manner so the service interruption time is minimized. This course is suitable for engineers with a desire to understand the fundamentals of power cable testing.

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of fifteen (15) questions to earn 3 PDH credits.
