6 Cables - InsulatorPrevent the physical contact: between two cables, cable-to-groundPhysical durable e.g. impact, heatChemical durable, e.g. erosionCommonly usedPolyvinyl Chloride (PVC)Cross linked Polyethylene (XLPE)
8 Cables for High Voltage Withstand the high voltage: insulator (if any) need to be good.Long distance transmission: Cable cost & Installation cost (e.g. electricity pole)Two main typesBare Wires (reduce cost)Insulated WiresComplication of Cable for High Voltage is the high voltage.
9 High Voltage Cables Bare Wires Made of Aluminum for lower costTransmission system (not distribution system for safety): Reduce usage: animals, accident, etc.AAC: All Aluminum CableAAAC: All Aluminum Alloy CableACSR: Aluminum Conductor Steel Reinforced
10 High Voltage Cables Bare Wires AAC: Basic type, for shorter spanAAAC: Improve the property of Aluminum by making it as an alloy stronger, larger span, corrosion resistance (e.g. sea)ACSR: Insert the steel in the core to have more tension.
11 High Voltage Cables Insulated Wires For safety and prevent interruptionPIC: Partial Insulated CableSAC: Space Aerial CableXLPE: Cross-linked Polyethylenehire-fire-crew-hot-air-balloonist_n_ html
12 High Voltage Cables Insulated Wires - PIC Should not have any directly contact to human.Extruded conductor shield is made of semi-conducting material to manage the electric field.Insulation only to protect line to line contact.
13 High Voltage Cables Insulated Wires - SAC Have extra shealth.Should not have any directly contact to human.
14 High Voltage Cables Insulated Wires - XLPE Conductor -> CopperConductor Shield -> made of semi-conducting material, allow the uniform distribution of electric field, prevent break downInsulationInsulation Shield -> made of semi-conducting material, to shield the electric fieldJacket / Shealth -> To protect the cableCan be used both in Air and underground (humidity)
15 Cables for Low Voltage Below 750V Conductor: Aluminum or Copper Insulator: PVC or XLPENumber of Conductor: 1 or manySpecial Type to suite the need: Fire Retardent
