P575 - IEEE Draft Guide for Bonding Shields and Sheaths of Single-Conductor Power Cables Rated 5 kV through 500 kV

The purpose of this guide is to provide the cable engineer with general and specific recommendations for consideration when designing new power cable circuits in order to reduce operational losses and/or to increase the current carrying capacity, as well as determining sheath voltages of cables on electric transmission systems.This guide describes the most common special sheath-bonding systems now in use on high-voltage, single-conductor, shielded power cables and methods of calculating sheath voltages and currents, particularly as applied to three-phase systems operating at 60 kV and above, with the cable neutral grounded directly or as part of a special bonding system as described in the standard. Although the guide text on induced voltages and currents in metallic sheaths is written primarily around high-voltage cables operating at 60 kV and above, the fundamental principles in this document apply equally to single-conductor medium-voltage shielded power cables when installed and operated as outlined in the guide. The user is cautioned to make sure that the installation/operating design does not contravene any local or national regulations.
