We report transient nonlinear finite element computations of the coupled electric and thermal fields undertaken to explain defected-induced thermal runaway of an HPFF cable under highly accelerated test conditions. These computations include the effects of temperature-and moisture-dependent tan(¿), temperature-dependent evolution of moisture, temperature-dependent evolution of CO, and temperature-dependent saturation concentration of CO. Computations were also undertaken for a range of boundary… CONTINUE READING
