IEEE Guide for Accelerated Aging Tests for 5 kV to 46 kV Extruded Electric Power Cables Using Water-Filled Tanks

Provided in this guide are information and recommendations on the equipment, cable specimens, test conditions, test control methodologies, measurements, data analysis, and interpretation in performing accelerated aging tests for 5 kV to 46 kV rated cables using water-filled tanks. The accelerated aging tests may be time-to-failure tests and/or tests in which the samples are aged for fixed times followed by diagnostic testing.

IEEE Guide for Accelerated Aging Tests for Medium-Voltage (5 kV-35 kV) Extruded Electric Power Cables Using Water-Filled Tanks

This guide provides information on the equipment, cable specimens, test conditions, and measurements to perform accelerated aging tests on medium-voltage cables using water-filled tanks, whether the test be a time to failure test or a test in which samples are aged for fixed times followed by a diagnostic test such as a step ac breakdown test. The guide identifies the critical test parameters and describes techniques for their measurement and control. The implementation of the techniques will facilitate a comparison of data obtained by different laboratories.
