This paper presents a complete three metre long 3D finite element method (FEM) model of a threecore submarine armoured cable. In this model, the different laying pitches of cores and armour steel wires are correctly taken into account. For the first time in technical literature, a 3 m long model has been successfully solved. The CPU times are very high i.e. about 70 h (mesh plus solver). IEC 602871-1 gives a strong overestimation of armour and screen power losses and consequently an important… CONTINUE READING
