MV Cable Design & Stress Control

Medium voltage cable is playing an ever increasing role in commercial and renewables projects. This necessitates a basic understanding on how the properties of medium voltage cable are vastly different compared to lower voltage cable.  This session will teach you basic properties of medium voltage cable design and their interactivity with cable accessories.   You will also learn how manufacturers use testing to validate performance and integrity of the relationship between cable and accessories along with how this data is used to constantly improve the design, installation simplicity and functionality of these accessories.
