Cable Systems Assessment (Classification, Defects, Diagnostic Test and Assessment Strategies)

Provide a guideline to design the proper condition assessment strategy for the Medium voltage, High voltage and Extra High voltage cable system installed in your plant.


These 2 half-days Online Virtual instructor-led Training (VILT) start with reviewing of the existing electrical stresses within the power cables and describing the main defects that can be present. Relevant diagnostic tests available for assessing the presence of the cable’s defects are then described during the second session in order to provide the right tools to properly design the testing strategy based on the characteristics of the cable systems installed.

Attendees will further improve their practical knowledge on:

  • Cable Classification: Provides the basic to recognize the differences between the existing cable systems.
  • Typical defects: Provides an overview of the possible issues which can occur within the cable systems. Partial discharge and Water trees processes are described in depth since are the two most common issues in the modern cables.
  • Diagnostic Test: Provides an explanation of the diagnostic test, general procedure, test result evaluation. This will help engineers to select the right test based on with benchmark has to be monitored. (Diagnostic tests to international standards)
  • Assessment strategies: Provides a guideline for design the assessment strategy (including commissioning and condition assessment) within their plant/network.

Designed For
