Guide for Field Testing and Evaluation of the Insulation of Shielded Power Cable Systems Rated 5 kV and Above
This guide lists the various field test methods that are currently available or under development. The guide covers shielded, insulated power cable systems rated 5 kV and above. The guide describes the tests and gives advantages and disadvantages, suggested applications, and typical results. Complete guides covering some of the test methods listed are available in the form of IEEE 400 "point" documents.
The purpose of this guide is to provide an overview of the various test methods available for evaluating the insulation of shielded cable systems in the field, and to assist cable owners in selecting one or more appropriate tests for a specific application.
