Gas-insulated transmission lines: the next generation of power transmission?

High voltage underground cables for power transmission have been in use for many years and number of different technologies have developed over the years. Solid insulation cables have limits when it comes to the voltage that can be carried safely, and oil impregnated paper cable are also limited in the capacity. Gas insulated transmission lines […]

Activities of Cigré’s study committee B1 (insulated cables)

  Cigré study committee (SC) B1 covers all types of AC and DC insulated cable systems for both land and submarine applications, and focuses mainly, but not exclusively, on high voltage and extra high voltage systems. Within this field, the SC covers theory, design, applications, manufacture, installation, testing, operation, maintenance and diagnostic techniques of insulated […]
