Investigation of european specification for medium voltage power cable (EUROMVCABLE)

Objective

In electrical power Supply, the medium voltage underground cables are representing a significant part of power distribution system. Various studies are carried out by utilities to improve the cost-effectiveness of the cable design. However, there is still a lot to do in the field of harmonisation in Europe to rationalise the cable design. As a result, a large variety of medium voltage extruded insulation cables are in use in Europe, with designs depending on the operating environments and experiences of each utility, and some standards that have not changed over the past decades. In addition to the cost-reduction challenge inherent to the cable design specifications, the other main challenge taken up by the partner is to rationalise the options for cable design by drawing up common specifications.
