Samples from a 138kV XLPE cable tested at Waltz Mill are examined and compared with an unenergized piece. Several new analytical techniques are employed and studies are made concerning the distribution of discontinuities (contaminants, ambers, voids, and trees, etc.), cure-related items (extractables, density, residual peroxide and decomposition products… (More)
