The relationship between partial discharge behavior and the degradation of 10 kV XLPE cable joints

The failure rate of XLPE (Cross-linked polyethylene) cable joints is higher than that of cable in distribution systems due to bad environmental conditions, improper installation, and aging. To evaluate the failure and degradation of a cable joint via partial discharge (PD) detection, a 10kV XLPE cable joint was selected as the experimental sample, which was… CONTINUE READING
