The use of esters as transformer insulation has been gaining increasing interest over the past few years because of their better environmental performance, higher resistance to the influence of moisture and for some particular liquids, higher flash point as well. However, in order to completely replace the traditional mineral oil and be...

Managing electrical distribution assets entails making the decision on how to proceed with an ageing asset. The three options that asset managers have are run to fail, perform maintenance or repairs and lastly to replace. This decision making process is becoming incrementally more important due to the threat of replacement waves. This a...

Power outages can damage severely critical infrastructures such as telecommunication networks, financial services, water supplies and hospitals and completely shutting down production at companies. While most power blackouts usually last from some minutes to few hours, some can last days or even weeks. Furthermore, it is likely that these kinds...

Cable terminations are essential for connecting a cable to a piece of equipment such as a circuit breaker, transformer, motor, etc. Proper terminations are of great importance in order to provide faultless cable systems. Improper terminations could result in overheating, partial discharges, eventual breakdown, flashover and breakdown in the...

The CIGRE B1 – B3.49 JWG defined a standardised 145 kV inner-cone GIS cable termination design. This standardisation allows the creation of new common interface insulators. This would eliminate the planning hurdles due to the fact that the cable system is not usually defined at the time of switchgear manufacture. The new design also requires a...

Detection of partial discharge (PD) in any high voltage equipment is of great importance to improve the reliability of the device and the power system. Characteristics of PDs, such as: rate of occurrence, magnitude, location and the type; gives information of the assets that must be considered. Nowadays, there are many different methods for...

The first commercial High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) transmission link was installed in 1954 between the mainland of Sweden and the island of Gotland. Since then, there is continuous and remarkable development in the HVDC technology making it an efficient way of transmitting bulk power over large distances. Due to the transition towards low...

The load of the electric grid in increased by the connection of more renewable energy sources and less controlled power stations. The transmission operator has to decide where and when new overhead lines are required. However the operator can also chose to utilize existing lines more by increasing the transport capacity. This can be accomplished...

The COBRAcable project is one of the major interconnectors being constructed in the North Sea, connecting the Netherlands with Denmark. It is a 325 km submarine cable which will have the ability to transfer 700 MW. The importance of the interconnector is manifold: to facilitate the exchange of renewable energy coming from the onshore Danish...

The phenomenon of partial discharge has been long studied in various power components and in recent times, it has been agreed that the occurrence of such discharges can be considered as a vital parameter of component health. Partial discharges in power cables is a pervasive phenomenon that over time may lead to...

At the end of a power transmission line, the cable should be terminated carefully, otherwise it will create problems during the operation. A special equipment called termination is designed to tackle down the problems from cable ends. The main functional part of a termination is a piece of rubber with a cone shape. This rubber cone has a semi...

The electrical properties of a widely used stress control tube for medium voltage heat-shrink joints are examined in this master thesis by using non-destructive laboratory methods. They were determined by use of time domain dielectric response test while changing the DC electric field, temperature and level of humidity.

In order to...
