P400.5 - Guide for Field Testing of Shielded DC Power Cable Systems Using High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC)

The purpose of this guide is to provide uniform practices and procedures for performing direct voltage acceptance and maintenance tests on shielded power cable systems in the field and to provide guidelines for evaluation of the test results.This guide presents the recommended practices and procedures for direct voltage acceptance and maintenance testing of shielded power DC cable systems rated 5 kV and above in the field. It applies to all type of power cable that are intended for the transmission or distribution of electric power with DC voltages. The tabulated test levels assume that the cable systems have an effectively grounded neutral system or a grounded metallic shield.
