Cable Terminations

SKU: TDCTE00CENDuration: 60 Minutes

The purpose of this course is to teach the principles of high-voltage cable terminations and to demonstrate how such cable terminations are made. The course explains the problems associated with voltage stress and the function of stress cones. Demonstrations of how to make several different kinds of cable terminations are presented. At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to explain what voltage stress is and how terminations are built to avoid voltage stress problems. They should understand how to make a high-voltage termination in a substation. They should also know how to make terminations at pedestals and how to install a pothead.
