1511.2 - Guide for Investigating and Analyzing Failures of Joints on Extruded Shielded Power Cables on Systems Rated 5 kV Through 46 kV

The purpose of this guide is to provide an introduction to the concepts of failure analysis of joints, also known as splices, on extruded power cables rated 5kV through 46kV, ways in which it can be used, and the value that can be obtained. The guide covers some of the commonly used methods employed in failure analysis and how these methods can be applied in determining the cause of failure for the joints used in the construction of an underground power cable system. Ultimately, the guide will serve as a source for documenting known failure mechanisms and will provide a format for the documentation of new failure mechanisms once they have been identified.
