Cables and Conductors 2 - Instant Video
This 61-minute video is an introduction to splicing and terminating high-voltage cables. It explains how these cables are constructed, how they relieve voltage stress, and how they eliminate static charges. It demonstrates how to splice cables using a splice kit, how to make hand-built splices, and how to terminate cables.
High Voltage Conductors – Construction – 6 minutes
Describes the functions of the components of a high-voltage cable, from the inside component out: conductor, shield, insulation, insulator shield, jacket, sheath.
High Voltage Conductors – Operation – 7 minutes
Explains why some cable covers are semi-conducting. Shows how certain layers of a cable relieve voltage stress, dissipate static charge.
Splice Kit Application – 14 minutes
Demonstrates step-by-step procedures for splicing a 13 kV cable with XLP insulation. Shows how to use special tools that make this job easier. Discusses the function of each item in a splice kit. Explains the purpose of a stress cone.
Preparing a Conductor for a Hand-Built Splice – 11 minutes
Demonstrates how to prepare 69 kV cables with cross-linked insulation for a hand-built splice. Demonstrates power tools and hand tools used for this job.
Hand-Built Splice – 8 minutes
Demonstrates the many steps in making a hand-built splice on 69 kV cables. Explains how a hand-built stress cone eases voltage stress in the area of a splice.
Terminations – 15 minutes
Explains how splices and terminations are similar, and how they are different. Demonstrates how to install a termination on a 13 kV cable with EPR insulation.
