IEEE Guide for Fault Locating Techniques on Shielded Power Cable Systems

Tests and measurements that are performed on shielded power cables to identify the location of a fault are described. Whenever possible, the limitations of a particular test and measurement to locate a fault are provided and recommendations are made regarding specialized fault-locating techniques. A fault characterization chart is included as an aid to select a fault-locating technique.

IEEE Guide for Investigating and Analyzing Power Cable, Joint, and Termination Failures on Systems Rated 5 kV Through 46 kV

This guide will discuss the importance of failure analysis on cable, joints, and terminations used in power systems rated 5kV through 46kV. Users should review the definitions and technical papers that are listed in the References and in the Bibliography to gain an understanding of failure analysis issues. Why a cable, joint, or termination fails is an important part of understanding trends and planning for improvements in system reliability.

IEEE Guide for Partial Discharge Testing of Shielded Power Cable Systems in a Field Environment

This guide covers the diagnostic testing of new or service-aged installed shielded power cable systems, which include cable, joints, and terminations, using partial discharge (PD) detection, measurement, and location. Partial discharge testing, which is a useful indicator of insulation degradation, may be carried out on-line or off-line by means of an external voltage source. This guide does not include the testing of compressed gas insulated systems or continuous on-line monitoring at normal service voltage.

IEEE Standard for Cable-Penetration Fire Stop Qualification Test

Revision of IEEE Std 634-1978 This standard is applicable to fire stops of various materials and construction. Cablepenetration fire stops are intended for use in fire-resistive barriers. Tests conducted in conformance with this standard will record the performance of fire stops during the test exposure. The resistance of a fire stop to an external force imposed by a hose stream or water spray will also be considered in this standard. The intent of this standard is to develop data to assist in determining the suitability of a fire stop for use where fire resistance is required.
