IEEE Guide to Select Terminations for Shielded Alternating-Current Power Cable Rated 5 kV - 46 kV

A step-by-step process for selecting an appropriate termination that is commensurate with a particular shielded power cable design is provided in this guide. Over the years, shielded power cables have been developed that employ many different insulating materials and many different shielding systems, such that, there are numerous issues to consider when selecting a termination for a particular cable design. Over the same period of time, many different termination methods and designs have been developed that serve the same purpose, but employ different application methodologies. This guide does not attempt to cover every cable and termination design, and is generally restricted to single conductor underground residential distribution (URD) and shielded power cable that have a voltage rating from 5 kV - 46 kV, which includes some industrial cables. By nature, the terminations referred to in this guide are considered to be "live front," in that the terminations comprise a transition from a shielded power cable system to an energized component or bus that is either bare or simply covered.

Other Activities From This Working Group

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.


No Active Projects

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.


No Active Standards

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.


No Superseded Standards

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.


No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.


No Inactive-Reserved Standards
